This year, the Community Art Project of Ox Warehouse revolves around the Three Lamps District (aka Rotunda de Carlos da Maia). There are the people who were born and grew up in this area, the Burmese Chinese who settled in Macao after the anti-Chinese riots in Burma in the 1960s, owners and staff of stores and restaurants in the neighbourhood, schoolboys and girls on their way to and from school or just stopping for lunch, the old folks as well as the immigrant workers from Southeast Asia gathering in the leisure area.
People from different walks of life revolve daily around this lamp post, and therefore the tiny roundabout congregates a diverse community living in their own ways, but closely knitted.
Together with the project creative types, through communication, research and interviews with the residents in different approaches, on different subjects and topics of their interest, we aim to sort out and compile personal stories related to the Three Lamps District residents and its neighborhood, which will be presented through different artistic angles, on a variety of media.
