Come join us to hear HK historian, Jason Wordie share his insite and knowledge on the Ethnic Diversity in Hong Kong.  The evening lecture will be held in an intimate and small private room at the Cafe Siam, LKF.
 
Hong Kong is often described – erroneously - as a cosmopolitan, 'international' society, and at first glance the city certainly exhibits those characteristics. But like many aspects of local life, the reality is somewhat different. In many key respects, Hong Kong was a far more diverse society a century ago than it is today.
 
Jason will explore the social and professional roles and diverse contributions that contributed to Hong Kong's evolution and development by various ethnic minority groups from the 1840s to the present day.
 
In particular, attention will be given to Sikhs and Punjabi Moslems, Nepalese, Sindhis and other groups from the Indian sub-continent, Sephardic Jews, Parsees, Portuguese, Eurasians and White Russians.
 
As always, friends and partners of Mozaic members are most welcomed to join too, at a cost of HKD 630.
