The journey of Hong Kongers to the United Kingdom is a poignant tale, intricately woven with threads of history, resilience, and the pursuit of freedom.

In making the decision to move to the UK, Hong Kongers have not only sought physical sanctuary but also a refuge for their dreams, aspirations, and the values they hold dear. Their journey is a testament to the indomitable human spirit, a pursuit of a better life, and a commitment to the principles that have defined Hong Kong’s unique identity for generations.

Through a collection of narratives, artefacts, and multimedia presentations, this display endeavours to capture the essence of a community navigating the currents of history, resilience, and the relentless pursuit of freedom.

Find the display in the Community Corridor on the second floor of Leeds City Museum.
