Open since 2016, Anim’Arte Nam Van is Macao’s newest landmark for leisure, culture and creativity. Retail spaces provide outlets for local designers to show and sell their wares. There are daily performances, all free of charge, and frequent workshops open to all too. And if all that’s not quite your bag, there’s even a dedicated street art area where you can let rip with your spray cans. 11am-10pm daily; workshops Wed-Mon 11am-9pm.
It’s a tired – and patently untrue – criticism that there’s little to Macao outside the confines of its glitzy mega hotels. Spend more time there than it takes to photo the ruins of St Paul’s and grab an egg tart and you might discover the city has some truly exciting art spaces. (Not to mention some great restaurants and bars.) So if you think you’ve seen all the best Hong Kong galleries, hop on the ferry, broaden your artist horizons and enjoy these creative spaces instead.
