The Hong Kong Arts Development Council (HKADC) is pleased to announce that ADC Artspace (Po Shau Centre) is now open for leasing application by performing arts organisations from different disciplines.
Since the launch of “Space Sharing Scheme for Youth” under the Policy Address 2017, HKADC has worked closely with Home Affairs Bureau to identify suitable properties and liaise with the landlords concerned for the provision of creative spaces at a concessionary rate for local arts organisations. This premier project of HKADC under the said scheme would not have been made possible without the generous sponsorship of Prompt Trading Limited to lease space at concessionary rate to HKADC and the funding support of the Home Affairs Bureau on operation costs.
The first tenancy of this new project will last for two years and ten months, commencing in July 2018. The monthly rental for the first year is HK$8 per sq. ft. and the monthly management fee is HK$3 per sq. ft. HKADC will also provide fitting-out allowance for application by approved tenants of the project to carry out basic fitting-out of the hired units. Please refer to Annex for more details.
HKADC first launched the ADC Artspace (Genesis) in 2014 to provide creative arts space for the visual and media arts sectors. The project has been well received. Following the opening of ADC Artspace in Po Shau Centre as well as other arts space projects under planning, more and more arts practitioners will be benefitted.
