Hakka Memories

Little is known about the Hakka way of life, a Han Chinese group of people living in Liverpool whose ancestral homes are chiefly in the Hakka-speaking provincial areas of Guangdong, Fujian, Jiangxi, Guangxi, Sichuan, Hunan, Zhejiang, Hainan, Guizhou in China. 

Liverpool Chinese Supplementary School in Upper Pitt Street, were funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund and Austin Smith Foundation to create the Hakka Memories intergenerational event to pass down their heritage to younger generations. They held a day of reminiscence,  dancing and sharing food.  All thanks to National Lottery Players.

This intergenerational  project bought people together to learn about the Hakka culture. More people learnt how heritage is also about memories, rituals and objects.
