Abstract: The paper will use the Community Museum Project (CMP,, a Hong Kong-based curatorial collective (with which the author is affiliated), as a case study in the possible application of the museum methodology to the visual representation of community values and practices; she explores how different areas of knowledge and social resources can be "curated" to nurture synergised social relations. CMP, though operates without a permanent space, shares with institutional museums in the practice of creating representations of histories and objects, the difference being the focus on the undocumented and under-represented vernacular culture (with emphasis on public, material and visual cultures) and indigenous creativity. The city, and particularly the street, is seen as a site of interwoven knowledge and resources. They are given visual forms by means of exhibitions, tours or other public programmes.
