Culture Workshop Overview

The MIA Cultural Workshops pioneered a two-tier model in intercultural education for the mainstream Chinese to learn about different ethnic communities in Hong Kong, and their cultures and life experiences.

In the first tier, post-secondary students were trained to be cultural trainers through seminars and field trips that involved speakers from South Asian communities on topics such as religion, food, family and gender. After learning about different aspects of South Asian cultures, the cultural trainers were guided in developing community-based projects together with ethnic minority youth, which were then presented in secondary schools and universities.

To ensure a sustainable development of this knowledge in the community and to promote the two-tier training model, MIA has published information kits after each Workshop, which were made available free of charge to the public, especially education institutions and social service organizations.
