Whenever Sham Tseng is mentioned, gourmets might think of the delicious roast goose, and hikers might recall the beauty of the nature when they walk on the ancient trails. However, Sham Tseng is more than these. Do you have any idea of the following scenery in Sham Tseng? A Hakka village with a history of several hundred years surrounded by greenery. And beyond the Castle Peak Road outside the village, there is a totally different scene formed by chimneys of factories. The industrial era that belonged to Sham Tseng was not cold and distant at all. On the contrary, it was merged into the lives of the villagers and added depth to the culture of Sham Tseng. In Sham Tseng, the harmony between city and village and the integration of Hakka and Chiu Chow culture compose the stories of villages that only exist here.
As time goes by, various details in the history of the villages are preserved in the memories of different villagers. These memories are not destroyed by time. Sponsored by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, the Conservancy Association Centre for Heritage (CACHe) launched ‘”Beyond the Village” Cultural Heritage Scheme’ this year. The exhibition ‘Travelling Through Sham Tseng: Journey of Memories’ is specially curated. Through the exhibition, the team of CACHe would take the memories of the villagers as your guide, and travel through the daily lives in the village that was ordinary but unfamiliar with you so that what is unknown other than the established impression can be unfolded. The venues of the exhibition would be set up in different places in Sham Tseng. You are invited to explore all these by becoming travellers through the history of Sham Tseng for one day.

The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: ‘Beyond the Village’ Cultural Heritage Scheme
The Scheme is organised by the Conservancy Association Centre for Heritage (CACHe) and funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust. The village is the key to studying the history of Hong Kong. It is also the root of different community cultures. As a place that contains villagers’ collective memory, village schools play a significant role in cultural heritage. Starting from village schools and the rural culture, the Scheme will dig deep into villages and their communities. Through various activities including rural culture days, special exhibitions, and training of cultural ambassadors, the Scheme serves to enhance the general public’s understanding of local villages and village schools, and to facilitate urban-rural integration. The Scheme also endeavours to encourage public participation. By engaging all stakeholders of the society in preserving rural history and village school culture, the Scheme enables village folklore to be passed on and strengthens social cohesion.
