既然說到「再倒敍」,我也就分享一下我和鹽田梓之間的一段過去。在本文上篇中,我提及曾在過去三年參加「鹽田梓藝術節」。第一次源自悲傷散心,第二次發自好奇觀摩,第三次出自歡欣遊歷。三次出遊,三個結局;三段歷程,三份感觸。如今雖是桃花依舊,卻也無意造就了我和鹽田梓之間暗自約定的一年一會。

有導賞員在慶祝派對上問我,每次舟車勞動來回西貢工作,會很辛苦嗎?其實,大自然一向帶有療癒力量。能在船上和大海相處,反而給予我平靜心靈的空間;過去半年在島上遇到的人、情、事,也讓我獲得繼續推動社區連結工作的力量。隨著我每次到訪時的際遇與心態轉變,鹽田梓帶給我的感受也有所不同,絕對是個「百去不厭」的地方!

這次的社區藝術項目根據島嶼的人文風情帶出深層文化訊息,內容精彩,意義非凡。有關更多「西貢海藝術節」的地區歷史、藝術品介紹、導賞員故事等等的活動資訊,可到其網站及Instagram了解更多。2023年的「西貢海藝術節」,預計在年底舉行,我很期待更多的社區連繫將透過活動產生,亦讓更多人親身接觸到西貢海獨特美麗的面貌。緣合相逢,聚散有時,期待下回「再島嶼」。

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

My bond with Yim Tin Tsai started three years ago when I first joined the Yim Tin Tsai Arts Festival. Processing a despondent experience during that time, I was hoping a trip could cheer me up. I came back there the second time the next year, out of an interest in learning the curation of an arts festival. In the third and last year of the Festival, I brought some friends because I wanted to share this amazing event with them. Yim Tin Tsai witnessed my growth as a person and many dear memories formed on that island. It is a magical place that I will never get tired of visiting.

At the celebration party, a docent asked me whether the long traveling back and forth to Sai Kung for this project was tough. Quite the contrary, I felt a sense of peace given by the healing power from nature every time I was on a ferry crossing the sea. Besides, all the unique experiences I had in the past six months on the islands — the people I encountered, the stories I heard, and the places I travelled — are fuels for me to continue building community networks.

Sai Kung Hoi Arts Festival is a distinctive community arts project that promotes an in-depth travelling experience by showcasing the local history, culture and environment through various art installations and public programs. You may read more about the meaningful art pieces, stories and sharing from artists, docents and ambassadors on its website and Instagram. I cannot wait for more interesting discoveries in the area in the upcoming Sai Kung Hoi Arts Festival 2023! Joy Again, Isle, until next time!
