街坊排檔
 

‘攪組織係為咗唔使做’
隱形委員會

“街坊排檔” 係自發組織空間,2015年11月8號開檔,從下而上咁支持街坊鄰里,無意間變成街坊互助店。綠色鐵皮結構嘅排檔位於香港油麻地咸美頓街同廣東道交界,集結生果和疏菜街市;五金鋪同幾間老人院。

自開檔以黎,街頭攤位由三位藝術家、兩位農夫、一位髮型師、一位加啡師、和一位老街坊異類同化、彈性和共同咁營運。

每日吸引各階層來訪,排檔售賣廣闊嘅物資和服務,由本土有機香蕉到街坊畫像寫生、由接近過期食品到公社果醬、由每週英文課到每月講故仔活動都俱全。

街坊慷慨嘅支持下,排檔無意圖地變咗間二手店,在「自由定價」比幾多無所謂嘅能力下拎嘢走。呢D物資全部係排檔可再生嘅通道空間擺放。

街坊排檔有賴互助友愛和社區支援,目的係加強附近社區間的施與受。 街頭排檔和其創意項目的視覺日記可於以下連結尋找: www.paidong.tumblr.com

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.

A visual diary of the street kiosk and creative projects can be seen at www.paidong.tumblr.com
