Abstract

This paper explores the narration of local practitioners and scholars on the development of narrative practice in Hong Kong over the past two decades. A qualitative study is conducted in this study through semi-structured interviews with five local narrative practice practitioners and scholars to collect their narrations on the development of narrative practices in Hong Kong. Four themes are found: 1) expectations for an alternative approach; 2) emergence of a narrative practice community and publications in Hong Kong; 3) transformative impacts of narrative practices on local practitioners; 4) hopes for the future of narrative practice in Hong Kong and potential challenges. Finally, three distinguishing features of the development of narrative practice in Hong Kong are discussed: “practice diversity for identity transformation”; “from a single story to multiple storylines with inspiring experiences”; and “legacy from generation to generation”.
