Policy Address

Cultural Development

125.     The West Kowloon Cultural District (WKCD) Authority is conducting a public engagement exercise on the conceptual plans submitted by three world-class planning and design teams.  The Authority will select one of them early next year as the master plan, which will serve as the basis of a detailed development plan.

126.     To tie in with the development of the WKCD, we will strengthen our cultural software, develop our audience base, and support more small and medium arts groups.  We have injected $3 billion into the Arts and Sports Development Fund.  We will use part of the fund's investment return to match donations from individuals and the business sector to provide funding for the continued development of promising artists and arts groups.

127.     To allow arts and culture to reach out to the community, we will display in our parks, open spaces and government offices buildings visual art pieces created by budding artists, students or teams, and improve the image, facilities and services of our public museums.

128.     In addition, to facilitate the use of public library services, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) will provide drop-in boxes at major MTR interchange stations on a trial basis to make it more convenient for people to return books and other library items.
