About Us


The West Kowloon Cultural District Authority is a statutory body established by the Hong Kong SAR Government in 2008 under the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority Ordinance (Cap. 601), responsible for developing the West Kowloon Cultural District.


Governed by the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority Ordinance and the Board, and led by an Executive Committee comprising experts from different sectors, our vision is to build a vibrant cultural quarter for the city, dedicated to bringing together local and international artists and audiences to be inspired and to celebrate the arts.


We aim to build a vital platform for young, emerging and established artists to experiment, create and collaborate; a place where people of all backgrounds come to explore, participate and be stimulated; and a home for imaginative world-class exhibitions, performances and other cultural events to take place.


To facilitate the development of the district, a number of committees specialising in different areas, were established by the Board. A consultation panel was also setup to gather public views on matters related to the functions of Authority.
