The "Lost and Sound Exhibition Series I: Hong Kong Festivals and Traditional Craftsmanship" aims to showcase the continuous evolution of intangible cultural heritage over time as a symbol of cultural inheritance, and to re-interpret local traditional culture in an innovative way. Visitors can refresh their minds by hearing the sounds of traditional activities, and perceive the wisdom of our predecessors while chanting their words.

The intangible cultural heritage items are presented in the exhibition according to four types of sounds, namely "vocal", "instrumental", "physical" and "situational". These different aspects refer, respectively, to the sounds made by the throat, the clattering sounds generated by instruments during work processes, the sounds produced by body movements, and the noise of the hustle and bustle heard at different festive occasions. The exhibits include the crafts created by the bearers of intangible cultural heritage for different festivals, birthdays of deities, ancestral worship and the Jiao Festival, as well as the relevant materials and tools.
