Hong Kong’s thriving art and cultural scene

In Hong Kong, East and West mesh in many ways, evidenced in a thriving arts and cultural scene that dances to the beat of orchestras, Chinese opera, jazz ensembles, film and art festivals, international and local super stars and talented amateur performers.

Signature annual events include the Hong Kong Arts Festival, Art Basel Hong Kong, Hong Kong International Film Festival, Le French May, the Chinese Opera Festival and the International Arts Carnival.

Hong Kong’s creative industries employ about 135 000 people engaged in fields ranging from music to performing arts, fashion to jewelry design, painting to publishing, interactive games to comics, advertising to architecture.

Offering stunning views of Victoria Harbour and the Hong Kong skyline, the West Kowloon Cultural District is taking shape as a world-class integrated arts and cultural district on 40 hectares of prime harbourfront land. The M+ Pavilion, opened in 2016, provides a home for M+ exhibitions in the run-up to the opening of the M+ museum, a new museum for visual culture. The Xiqu Centre for Chinese opera opened in January 2019. The Art Park– including the Freespace black box theatre and outdoor stage will open in stages from 2018. The Hong Kong Palace Museum, which will display artefacts of Chinese art and culture from the collection of the Palace Museum, is scheduled for opening in 2022. The Lyric Theatre Complex, which will showcase the best of Hong Kong and international dance and theatre, will be completed around 2022.
