Speaker/Historian: Mr. Law Siak Hong
Trained in Design and Architecture, Law Siak Hong began heritage and conservation work in Penang which led to the formation of PHS. In 2002, Hong started a personal project, and maintains the Papan Memorial to Sybil Kathigasu, in the tin-mining town of Papan, 14km south of Ipoh. A historian by default, Hong’s grounding in buildings, and creative ventures resulted in greater awareness of the significance of cross-cultural exchange and research in heritage. As a founder-member of the PHS, Hong has given talks at internationally on subjects of industrial heritage, community cultural development and place making. His latest effort was an illustrated talk at the Pangkor Island Festival, Nov-Dec 2017.
