Tai Kwun: Recently completed in May 2018, the beautiful Tai Kwun Centre for Heritage and Arts (www.taikwun.hk) is a revitalization project of the former Central Police Station and Prison, led by The Hong Kong Jockey Club in partnership with the Government of the Hong Kong SAR. Tai Kwun is quickly establishing itself as a vibrant community hub of culture and contemporary arts. In addition, it is a stunning conservation effort praised for its detail to preserve historical sites and vision in opening exhibitions to the public.

Please join us for an exclusive private tour of the inspiring venue and a first hand discussion on the project led by Mr. Leong Cheung, who led the transformation and conservancy efforts. 

 

hc:Bistro is a social enterprise project undertaken by the Hong Chi Association. The restaurant provides training and a safe working environment for people with intellectual disabilities. Customers are warmly welcomed by a dedicated staff of people with special needs who will give the best of themselves to create a memorable visit, offering delightful dishes, a comfortable and artistic ambience within a unique architectural setting of a colonial prison building.
