The event at “Hong Kong’s New Destination for Contemporary Art”

The South Island Cultural District (SICD) galleries, art spaces and artist studios will open their doors for the annual South Island Art Day on September 24th, 2016. Following highly successful Art Nights and Art Days over the past 2 years, the SICD is expecting over 2000 local and international art lovers to attend the event at “Hong Kong’s New Destination for Contemporary Art”.

SICD promises an exciting and varied programme including art exhibitions in 24 art spaces, giving visitors the opportunity to attend exhibition openings, interact with local and international artists, experience contemporary art, dance and music performances, as well as enjoy free food and drink from our south side partners. A free shuttle bus will be in operation, bringing guests from Central (World Wide House/Pedder Street) to Wong Chuk Hang and Tin Wan.

South Island Art Day 2015

Currently led by contemporary art galleries, the present objective of SICD is to bring awareness about the district to art lovers. They organise joint openings, specific events and liaise with art fairs and other festivals to promote the area. SICD has also produced a written guide to the district, which is available at key distribution points throughout Hong Kong. The group has a website and sends monthly e-newsletters with updated information about spaces, exhibitions, special events and show openings. Soon SICD will include more cultural outlets in the area such as photo studios, dance academies, yoga centers, private kitchens, music studios, etc. Crossover and interdisciplinary events as well as cultural festivals will be organized. SICD is at the forefront of the promotion of this new and dynamic cultural neighborhood.
