In addition to the opening of CX 888, a solo presentation by Christopher K. Ho on 1 September, the artist will co-host two public Happy Hour events with Ingrid Pui Yee Chu and Savannah Gorton as part of F&T's Office Hours programme. During each Happy Hour visitors can share drinks and discuss readings that relate to themes and questions raised by Ho's installation in-progress.
The second Happy Hour programme takes place on 28 August, features a reading by poet Tammy Ho Lai-Ming and a group discussion about 'lived experience' in Hong Kong.
Tammy Ho Lai-Ming is a founding co-editor of the Hong Kong-based international publication Cha: An Asian Literary Journal, an editor of the academic journals Hong Kong Studies and Victorian Network, and the English Editor of Voice & Verse Poetry Magazine.

She is, beginning from September 2018, an associate professor at Hong Kong Baptist University, where she teaches fiction, poetics, and modern drama. She also serves as the Vice President of PEN Hong Kong and a Junior Fellow of the Hong Kong Academy of the Humanities. Her second poetry collection Too Too Too Too and her first collection of short stories Her Name Upon the Strand are forthcoming.
