Hong Kong Arts Centre - Art for Passion, Art for Life, Art for All


Since 1977, the Hong Kong Arts Centre (HKAC) has been a platform for nurturing and supporting artists, and infusing arts into everyday life. Its unique arts and educational programmes aim to make the arts accessible for all.


The HKAC believes in the transformational power of arts for people from all walks of life. Established for more than four decades, the HKAC endeavours to bring arts to the people of Hong Kong – by presenting programmes for visual arts, performing arts, moving images and media arts, comics and animation. Our other areas also cover arts education, conferences, festivals, public art and community projects towards different sectors, including but not limited to schools, elderly, the autistic, the mentally disabled, and many more. All our programmes are presented with the vision and mission of engaging and inspiring creativity in the Hong Kong community.


In 2000, HKAC founded its education arm, Hong Kong Art School (HKAS). The HKAS provides award-bearing programmes to nurture artists and art practitioners, as well as short enrichment courses for the general public.


The HKAC aspires to engage everyone in the community to become an active participant in the arts - as an enthusiast, an artist or a patron.


HKAC will continue its 45th anniversary celebrations  into 2023. Let’s continue to embrace ‘Art for Passion, Art for Life, Art for All’, and share the inspiration.
