ADC Artspace

The ADC Artspace (12/F, Genesis, 33-35 Wong Chuk Hang Road), the first Arts Space Scheme implemented by Hong Kong Arts Development Council (ADC), aims to provide arts studios at concessionary rent to local visual and media artists, especially to emerging artists. The establishment of the ADC Artspace was made possible by the generous sponsorship of Hip Shing Hong (Holdings) Company Limited which leased space with below-market rate to the ADC, and the full support from the Home Affairs Bureau.

    Mr. Chan Tze Woon, artist of “Faraway Warehouse” won the Hong Kong Arts Development Award 2016–Award for Young Artist (film) of the Hong Kong Arts Development Council

    Mr. Chan Tze Woon, artist of “Faraway Warehouse” was awarded the Hong Kong Arts Development Award 2016–Award for Young Artist (film) of the Hong Kong Arts Development Council. Mr. Chan’s creative pursuits feature Hong Kong political environment and social movements. Mr. Chan’s works are recognised for his personal style and experimental spirit, challenging the established perceptions of documentaries and dramatic films.

    Mr. Chan created the debut mockumentary short, titled “The Aqueous Truth”, in 2013 which strengthened his determination to be an independent filmmaker. In 2014, the mockumentary style was re-curred in his second short film, “Being Rain: Representation and Will”, mirrored the political atmosphere of Hong Kong at that time using “conspiracy theory” which brought him the Best Creativity Award in Open Division, Local Competition in the Fresh Wave International Short Film Festival and shortlisted in Open Division of the Hong Kong Independent Short Film and Video Awards.

    Mr. Chan put himself up to the challenge of making different films and produced his first full-length documentary, “Yellowing”, in 2016 using first-hand perspective, recorded how some selected protesters felt, their ups-and-downs and trivia at the scene. As the director was directly involved and experienced the movement with the selected protesters, “Yellowing” distinguished itself from other documentaries on the Umbrella Movement. The film was shortlisted for the Best Documentary of the Golden Horse Awards and participated in a number of international film festivals.

    The Unveiling of ADC Artspace

    In response to the arts community’s needs for arts space, the Hong Kong Arts Development Council (ADC) is actively engaged in discussions with various strategic partners to implement ADC Arts Space Scheme.

    The first “ADC Artspace” in Genesis, Wong Chuk Hang was unveiled today (19 December), with Mr Tsang Tak-sing, Secretary for Home Affairs, Dr Wong Ying-wai, Wilfred, Chairman of the ADC and Mr Fong Man-hung, David, Managing Director of Hip Shing Hong (Holdings) Company Ltd as the officiating guests. Also joining the unveiling ceremony included tenants of the ADC Artspace, Southern District Councillors and members of the local arts community.

    At the ceremony, Dr Wong Ying-wai, Wilfred, Chairman of the ADC said, “The ADC Arts Space Scheme would not have been made possible without the concerted efforts of the government, the arts community and the business sector. ‘ADC Artspace’ is a milestone of the ADC in providing arts space for local artists. In future, we will continue to strive for more artspace through different types of collaborations.”

    Mr Fong Man-Hung, David, Managing Director of Hip Shing Hong (Holdings) Company Ltd., said, “Hip Shing Hong is honoured to be the sponsoring organisation of ‘ADC Artspace’ by offering artists a rent that is below market rate at Genesis, a revitalised industrial building which provides an area of around 10,000 sq. ft. We are dedicated to promote the diversity of local arts development and cultivate more young artists in Hong Kong.”

    The “ADC Artspace” is located at 12/F, Genesis, 33-35 Wong Chuk Hang Road, Aberdeen, opposite to the Wong Chuk Hang Station of the MTR South Island Line which will be completed in 2016. Its total floor area is about 10,254 ft2, providing 17 individual units ranging from around 300 to 1,400 ft2 for visual and media artists.

    27 artists have already moved in the Artspace since this November. Among 17 arts studios, more than half of them received emerging artists rental subsidy. For the list of tenants, please  visit www.artspace.hk.

    The “ADC Artspace” provides creative arts studios to local visual and media artists, particularly emerging ones, to help relieve the rental pressure. The ADC in collaboration with the government succeeded in enlisting the support of Hip Shing Hong (Holdings) Company Ltd. to lease a floor of a Wong Chuk Hang commercial building at a below-market rate for the scheme. In support of this Scheme, the Home Affairs Bureau has subsidised about HK$8 million to the ADC for use in areas such as premise refurbishment, start-up and rental support for emerging artists, etc.

    The leasing exercise for the first term (the first and second year) was open for application in 2013. It was well-received by the arts community with more than 70 applications. At the same time, an “Emerging Artists Rental Subsidy Scheme” was introduced by the ADC to provide 50% rental subsidy to emerging artists who graduated not more than 3 years for a maximum of two years to encourage their artistic development. However, tenants are still required to pay the operation fee.

    The Scheme is tentatively scheduled for six years, with each tenancy term lasting for two years. The rent for the first leasing term (the first and second year) is HK$5.5/ft2, plus the operation fee at HK$2.5/ft2. The rent for the second (the third and fourth year) and third leasing term (the fifth and sixth year) will be HK$6.5/ft2 and HK$8/ft2 respectively. The operation fee for the second and third leasing term is yet to be confirmed. Tenants are encouraged to form a Tenants Committee to participate in the operation of the Artspace.

    ADC Arts Space Scheme

    The Hong Kong Arts Development Council (ADC) today announced details of its first ADC Arts Space. More than 10 studios with sizes ranging from 400 ft2 to 1,300 ft2 will be leased to local artists/arts groups at affordable rental fees.

    The ADC has been concerned about the lack of creative and rehearsal space for arts groups and arts practitioners. In response to the arts community’s needs for arts space, the ADC is actively engaged in discussions with various strategic partners to implement “ADC Arts Space Scheme” to explore usable area for artistic creation. This will help relieve the rental pressure faced by the arts community.

    The ADC in collaboration with the government succeeded in enlisting the support of Hip Shing Hong Group of Companies to lease a floor of an industrial building in Wong Chuk Hang at a below-market rate to local artists/arts groups. In support of this project, the government has subsidised about HK$8 million to the ADC for use in areas such as premise refurbishment, start-up and rental support for emerging artists.

    Located at the 12/F of 33-35 Wong Chuk Hang Road, Aberdeen, the ADC Arts Space is opposite to the Wong Chuk Hang Station of the MTR South Island Line which will be completed in 2015. Its total floor area is about 10,254 ft2, ceiling height about 10 ft with about 7 ft 11 inches under beams.

    Presiding at today’s press conference, Mr Wong Ying-wai, Wilfred, Chairman of the ADC said, “Through a tripartite collaboration between the government, the arts community and the business sector, we succeeded in introducing the ADC Arts Space Scheme to provide arts space for local artists and arts groups at affordable rentals. We hope this will serve as a good example for others to follow and contribute to the development of arts in Hong Kong. ”

    Mr Fong Man-Hung, David, Managing Director of Hip Shing Hong Group of Companies said, “It is our honor to sponsor the ADC Arts Space Scheme. We wish to play a part in motivating a more diversified development in the local arts community, both in depth and in width. By so doing, we are not only lending a helping hand to local artists, but also elevating the class of Wong Chuk Hang.”

    Given the geographic location, size, ceiling height and future development of the Building, more than 10 studios with sizes ranging from 400 ft2 to 1,300 ft2 will be provided for visual arts/media arts artists.

    The duration of the ADC Arts Space Scheme at Wong Chuk Hang is tentatively scheduled for six years, with each tenancy term lasting for two years. The rent for the first leasing term (the first and second year) will be HK$5.5/ft2, plus the operation fee at HK$2.5/ft2. The rent for the second (the third and fourth year) and third leasing term (the fifth and sixth year) will be HK$6.5/ft2 and HK$8/ft2 respectively. The operation fee for the second and third leasing term is yet to be confirmed. Tenants are recommended to form a Tenants Committee and participate in the operation of the Arts Space.

    To encourage the development of emerging artists who graduated not more than 3 years, an “Emerging Artists Rental Subsidy Scheme” will be introduced to provide 50% rental subsidy to emerging artists for a maximum of two years. However, tenants are still required to pay the operation fee. The allocation ratio between artists and emerging artists will be 50:50.

    The ADC Arts Space Scheme is now open for application and the deadline is 6:30pm, 23 August 2013 (Friday). For details, please visit www.hkadc.org.hk. Studios are tentatively available for occupation by the end of 2013 or early 2014, subject to the renovation progress of the Premises.
