International Archives Week 2020 Activities

To celebrate the International Archives Week, the Hong Kong Archives Society will host an online activity to advocate the importance of archives and its work. In the light of public health safety, the International Council of Archives is encouraging all archives and cultural institutions to use online platforms to continue with our 'social interaction.'

The live online sessions will be held in the morning of 13 June and the afternoon of 14 June. Speakers from Government Records Service, Records and Heritage Office of TWGHs, Wontonmeen and Tung Lin Kok Yuen will share with us their experience. Participants can join from the Hong Kong Archives Society’s Facebook page. Details as follows:
