Culture and Arts

226. As regards arts and culture, the Government has continued to allocate resources to implement a series of measures to promote cultural development in the past few years. Our vision is to develop Hong Kong into an international cultural city.

227. The HAB and LCSD implemented a number of measures in recent years in support of art groups and artists. These include setting aside $150 million to strengthen the training of art administrators, and increasing the recurrent provision since 2014-15 to $60 million a year for the Hong Kong Arts Development Council and nine major performing art groups, so as to enhance the subsidies for local artists and art groups of different sizes. In addition, the Art Development Matching Grants Pilot Scheme was introduced last year to encourage the community and the private sector to sponsor art and cultural activities.

228. As for venues, apart from the expansion of the Hong Kong Museum of Art, the foundation for the building of the East Kowloon Cultural Centre was laid last December. The Government also strives to provide creative space for local artists and emerging art groups, such as art space in Aberdeen and Tai Po.
