Foreigners in Hong Kong: Identity and Culture
It’s easy to categorise “expats” in Hong Kong as a single group, especially when they are ethnically non-Chinese. Perhaps they enjoy going to night clubs and bars? Or they tend to be extroverted and somewhat noisy? Or is the situation more complex than that? Join us for an evening where we explore the identities and cultures in Hong Kong’s community of foreigners and experience how Asia’s World City feels like from the “other side”. All are welcome!
