Event Details

The Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macau and the Asia Society Hong Kong Center (ASHK) are pleased to announce the 5th edition of "The Night of Ideas" (in French, La Nuit des Idées), which will reflect on the contours of the notion of heritage.

Under the title "[Re]build : Beyond the Skyline" this event will take place on 21st June 2020 from 5:30pm to 10:00 p.m. at ASHK on-site and online. Through its hybrid and innovative design, it will bring to you an insightful and lively content, whether you come to the calm oasis of ASHK in the heart of Admiralty or you are live streaming at home.

As the year 2022 marks 10 years of ASHK at the Former Explosives Magazine heritage site as well as the 5th anniversary of the Night of Ideas organised by the Consulate General of France, both institutions come together to reflect on the past in order to shape the world ahead. Heritage takes a thriving place in the debate shaping the identity of the future generations. In light of this observation, the Night of Ideas aims to dive into the depth on the notion to answer a simple, yet essential question: What is heritage?
