為期三個月的「西貢海藝術節2022『再島序』」剛於一月中完結,我們一眾參與其中的策展團隊、藝術家、導賞員團隊、藝術節大使一同出席在橋咀泳灘上舉行的慶祝派對。為了籌備項目,大夥兒辛勞了大半年,在此時此刻,看著眼前的島嶼美景、聽著悠揚的現場音樂、享受著愉快的對談交流,如此美好的時光,必定在將來成為值得「再倒敍」的回憶。

當初,我收到策展團隊的合作邀請電話時,感到既驚且喜 — — 喜的是,我曾連續參加過去三年的「鹽田梓藝術節」(「西貢海藝術節」的先導計劃),那時已在心中想像自己在這個地方帶領導賞團的畫面,如今竟然美夢成真;驚的是,我們需要籌備出接近300次導賞團的出團安排。在受到疫情嚴重影響下,這種規模的合作項目對街坊帶路團隊絕對是個振奮的挑戰!

是次一別,大家將各散東西,有人決定了移居海外,亦有人計劃了其他發展,以同樣組合再聚的機會微乎其微。珍惜每一段經歷,擁抱每一個體驗,也是我在這次合作中之有感。

【 Joy Together, Joy Again】 (Part I of II)

The 3-month Sai Kung Hoi Arts Festival 2022 “Joy Again, Isle” just ended in mid-January. After bending our backs for the project for over half a year, the curatorial team, artists, docents and ambassadors enjoyed a wonderful night at the celebration party at Kiu Tsui Beach. The incredible island view, warm-hearted conversations and beautiful live music — everything put together such a good vibe.

When I first received the call from the curatorial team One Bite Design Studio, I actually had mixed feelings about this collaboration. On the one hand, I was thrilled. Since I joined Yim Tin Tsai Arts Festival (the pilot project of Sai Kung Hoi Arts Festival) last three years, it has been my dream that Kaifong Tour could give community tours there one day. On the other hand, it would be quite an intense program despite the excitement because the target was to deliver nearly 300 tours! This was a perfect challenge that our team was ready for during the economic slump in 2022.

After working closely with each other over the past few months, it is a little sad to know that there may not be another chance to work with the same team again in the future, as some people are moving overseas or have other plans. There is never a right time to say goodbye, but we can always cherish every joyful moment along the journey and be grateful for the experience.
