Scheduled to open late this year (if the issues surrounding that collapsed wall are fixed) is another massive independent art space in the heart of the Hong Kong. Conveniently located next to the Mid-Levels escalator – and complete with a pedestrian footbridge straight from the escalators – is the Tai Kwun compound. Originally the former Central Police Station, the Central Magistracy and Victoria Prison, the site will soon be one of the biggest creative hubs in the city (as well as one of our largest revitalisation projects), consisting of 16 heritage buildings, two open spaces and two new buildings, which will house art galleries and a 200 seat auditorium. Once open, the Tai Kwun Centre will host six to eight curated art exhibitions annually, as well as daily interactive tours exploring the heritage of the site. The space will also host many immersive programmes, including performances and workshops, providing yet another opportunity for Hongkongers to re-imagine a once closed-off part of town.
