Transforming Disused Urban Space
What kinds of arts spaces does Hong Kong need? The transformation of disused urban space is a key objective for Hong Kong’s arts development, but the crucial questions are: Is the transformation of old buildings valuable for arts development? What is the role of government? And what is the role of artists? The Oil Street Artists’ Village and the Fo Tan Artists’ Village were established by artists in old disused buildings, and the Hong Kong Fringe Club is an independent arts venue in a heritage building. How are these venues different from the Cattle Depot, a government-initiated artists’ village? What do the artists think, and what problems did they encounter? Speakers will also discuss the latest projects: the Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre Project in Shek Kip Mei, Mallory Street in Wanchai and the historic buildings of the Central Police Station Compound.
