The West Kowloon Cultural District, stretching across 40 hectares of reclaimed land, is one of the largest cultural projects in the world, blending art, education and open space. Its vision is to create a vibrant cultural quarter for Hong Kong where the local arts scene can interact, develop and collaborate. Providing 23 hectares of public open space with 2km of vibrant harbour-front promenade, it will also include a variety of arts and cultural facilities that will produce and host world-class exhibitions, performances and arts and cultural events.
The Xiqu centre, a world-class arts venue dedicated to promoting the rich heritage of Xiqu, opens in January 2019. The M+ museum, opens in mid November 2021, is one of the largest museums of modern and contemporary visual culture in the world. The Hong Kong Palace Museum (HKPM), a collaborative project between the West Kowloon District Authority and the Palace Museum, is scheduled to open in mid-2022. The HKPM will present the finest objects from the Palace Museum and other leading cultural institutions around the world.
