Contacts & Details
The Hong Kong Arts Centre (HKAC) is a self-financed, non-profit organisation devoted to arts and culture providing a wide range of programmes on performing arts, visual arts, film and video arts, public art projects, conferences, art festivals and more, connecting the arts to the general public. Its split-level 4/F and 5/F Pao Galleries feature a wide range of local and international art exhibitions. The Jockey Club Atrium (G/F- 3/F) and the Experimental Gallery (3/F) are other unique alternative spaces for holding small-scale exhibitions. Its education arm, the Hong Kong Art School, with the Main Campus on the 10th floor of the HKAC main building, Pao Haung Sue Ing Campus in Shau Kei Wan and the Chai Wan Campus at Youth Square, offers award-bearing and professional programmes as well as short courses, and its gallery, The Gallery of Hong Kong Art School, is situated at the 10/F of the Centre.
The HKAC is also appointed by the Urban Renewal Authority (URA) as the Main Operator of the Mallory Street project in Wan Chai, managing the Comix Home Base (CHB) under a five-year contract. The CHB opened in July 2013 and the HKAC is operating the CHB as the platform for exchange and interaction for the comics industry, locally and internationally.
