The Diarist's note
20 October 2020
Wan Chai Streetscape is a project we started in early 2018. The nearly 60-minute documentary marks the first time we focused on "the street" as a unit of storytelling. Six streets – which pedestrian frequent yet easily loses sight of – were identified for the exploration. They include: Thomson Road, Heard Street, Oi Kwan Road, Russell Street, Jardine's Crescent, and Ngan Mok Street.     Why streets? It is because we believe that perspective matters. An understanding of the city begins with an exploration of its streets. Wal

About Us

Urban Diary is a non-profit initiative. We promote sustainability through narrating community stories, building digital databases, and organising community events. Cities are multi-layered and multifaceted and we use text, audio, illustrations and moving images to capture its complexity. In Urban Diary, we believe that people’s everyday tales are pivotal to comprehending cities and to building a sustainable future.
