West Kowloon Cultural District in the Making – Beyond the Spectacles 00:21:52 2013-11-20
The West Kowloon Cultural District (WKCD) has been a subject of controversy since its launch. Nevertheless, Hong Kong’s cultural development has entered the “West Kowloon Era”: Under the WKCD Effect, arts and cultural activities have bloomed and flourished. With art fairs, art shows at shopping malls and non-profit art activities galore, the public is getting more exposed to the arts, and their interest in contemporary art has also increased. Meanwhile, the WKCD project was officially launched last year. In the past six months, the yet-to-be-developed site began to bustle with noise and excitement as a number of large scale events took place, such as the Renaissance Music Festival, Clockenflap, Freespace Fest, the West Kowloon Bamboo Theatre and the Mobile M+: Inflation! sculpture exhibition. Many people, for the first time, set foot on the site. Yet how much further does the public understand “arts and culture” as a result?

Apart from these large scale, firework-like spectacles held in the West Kowloon Cultural District, what else do we need for our cultural life? We have found in the WKCD cultural spirits that are rarely seen in Hong Kong. Can these spirits take root beyond the spectacles?
