A new series of Tai Kwun Conversations devoted to the prison themes accompanies the opening of two permanent exhibitions about the complex histories and heritage values of Victoria Prison.
The prison walls separate inmates from the outside world. Isolation, loneliness, fear, guilt, self-abasement, yearning . . . and so on—inmates suffer from emotional stress and psychological pain. How do they cope? How to build hope and overcome sorrow?
Rev. Prof. Tobias Brandner and renowned pianist Nancy Loo share their respective experiences as a chaplain and a volunteer working in the prison context. Their interactions with inmates offer insight into how social support, love, care, spirituality, and creativity impact the emotional wellbeing of inmates.
The conversations will be conducted in Cantonese, with Chinese-English simultaneous interpretation.
