This was the third event organised by Rakan Mantin and the community to regenerate their over a century old historical and cultural landscape. It was the first time the villagers and friends had come together to celebrate their heritage through discovery walks, talks, music, local performances and delicious Hakka food.
Peter Tan and Wuan came to support and help with the transportation of the blind musicians invited to sign at the evening concert.
Using one of the homes in the village that belongs to the Chong family, the community came together to established an interpretive center for the villagers’ social and political meeting place.
This first Mantin walk was a success with over 80 people some villagers and the rest visitors. More are more people coming to know about this century old wooden village and its current problems facing indiscriminate demolition by the authority and private developer.
A community initiative to promote and to protect historical and cultural landscape from indiscriminate destruction.
