「旅遊 x 義工」攝影展+講座
 
義遊──結合了旅遊、義工、文化交流、學習等元素於一身的嶄新旅遊方式,越來越受香港人歡迎,不少人選擇到貧窮地區探訪老人、到山區學校義教,甚至修路、建蓄水池、建學校。藉著參與義務工作營,與不同文化及種族背景的人相處及工作,跳出平日的生活模式,真正放眼世界,令旅遊體驗更豐富。
 
活躍於旅遊及義務工作,至今已推出多本旅遊著作的談齊好(Virginia Tam),將於九月期間在賽馬會創意藝術中心舉辦個人攝影展,展出她在雲南、湖南山區、印度、柬埔寨等地拍攝的作品。展覽期間亦將舉行講座,邀請數位來自不同志願機構的嘉賓,一同分享工作營的體驗及種種苦與樂,工作營的開展程序及考察工作等,並介紹去外國做義工的途徑。透過分享,希望推動更多香港人參與義遊行列,讓有興趣參與外國義工服務的人士掌握有關資訊。

「Travel x Volunteer」Photo Exhibition + Workshop

Socially conscious travel has become increasingly popular among Hong Kong people who want to give some of their free time to helping others. However, most volunteers found that they “Received” more than “Giving”. Immersing oneself in a completely different culture and interaction with local people will definitely broaden diversity in life, also create world peace.

Virginia Tam have been invited by Cafe GOLDEN to present her snapshot photos taken during her volunteer trips in undeveloped cities. The photo exhibition will run for three months until the end of September. All photos displayed are for sale. She'll host a “Travel x Volunteer” workshop during the exhibition, and invite a few guests from different NGOs to share their overseas volunteering experience. Besides motivating more Hong Kong people to broader their volunteer experience, it also provides a platform for those who are interested in Volunteer-Traveling to learn more about work camps, and to meet different NGOs in one space.

  • How to choose between different work camps?

  • How much to pay for volunteer work camp?

  • What's the requirement to volunteer overseas?

  • Is it safe to volunteer in third world countries?

  • How to choose NGO?

  • How tough are those work camps?
