Hong Kong Arts Centre -

The relevant destination for arts and creative inspirations in Hong Kong

 
HKAC is a multi-arts centre that fosters artistic exchanges locally and internationally, bringing the most forward creations to Hong Kong and showcasing homegrown talents abroad.  
 
HKAC stimulates innovation and promotes creativity. Being Hong Kong's only independent non-profit multi-arts institution, HKAC offers exhibitions, screenings and performances, connecting the arts of Hong Kong to the rest of the world through programmes and collaborations.
 
In the past four decades, HKAC has been dedicated to building the local art ecosystem as well as facilitating cultural exchange between Hong Kong and the rest of the world. Aiming to make art accessible to wide public audiences, HKAC has presented over 2,000 programmes covering performing arts, visual arts, film and video arts, public art projects, art conferences, art festivals and more.
 
HKAC's education arm, the Hong Kong Art School (HKAS), was born in 2000 as an accredited institute staffed by a group of dedicated artists for the fostering of new talents for the local art scene. Its award-bearing curriculum focuses on four core academic areas: Fine Art, Applied Art, Media Art, and Applied Theatre and Drama Education. HKAC also diligently builds platforms at home and overseas to showcase potential local talents through measures such as curating exhibitions and commissioning projects. 
 
At the juncture of its 40th anniversary, HKAC launched a rebranding and renovation project to strengthen its core concept of 'Arts at the Centre' and to continue to promote internationally the development of Asian contemporary arts as well as the local art scene.
