Kai Fong Pai Dong (neighbourhood street kiosk)
“Get organized in order to no longer have to work”
The Invisible Committee
Kai Fong Pai Dong is a self-organised space that opened on Sunday 8th November 2015 to support the neighbourhood from the bottom-up. The green metal structure is located where Hamilton Street meets Canton Road in Yau Ma Tei, Hong Kong, an intersection home to a fruit and vegetable market, hardware shops and several nursing homes.
Since opening, the street kiosk has become a heteropia, collaboratively run by three artists, two farmers, a hairdresser, a barista and an elderly neighbour. Open daily and visited by an eclectic demographic, the kiosk offers an expansive range of products and services, from locally grown organic bananas to neighbourhood portraits, from organic extra-virgin coconut oil to communal jam making, and from weekly English lessons to monthly storytelling events.
Supported by generous neighbours, the kiosk has unintentionally become a second-hand shop, distributing objects under an affordable “Pay-What-You-Can” system. These objects are visually-merchandised in a reconfigured public space next to the kiosk.
Kai Fong Pai Dong relies on mutual aid, empathy and community support, and aims to empower those that run it and the neighbourhood community.
