Hong Kong is not a huge city, but there are certainly a lot of hidden gems around. Foreigners, and even locals, might only relate art to places like Central, yet in fact, there is another district just 15 minutes away, which delivers the same, if not more, diversity of artworks for your enjoyment.

South Island Cultural District is “Hong Kong’s New Destination for Contemporary Art”. Founded in 2013, the group has grown into an organization which includes over 20 art spaces, holding exciting exhibitions and other programs throughout the year. The district’s highlighted event, however, would definitely be the upcoming South Island Art Day on the 19th of September, 2015. Attracting visitors from both Hong Kong and overseas, as proven in their previously held events which were highly successful, they are expecting more than 2000 guests this year for the event at Wong Chuk Hang, Tin Wan and Ap Lei Chau district.

With art galleries, restaurants, cafes and private kitchens located in SICD, the area is undoubtedly rich in culture. Opening the event with different interactions between local and international artists, dance and music performances, as well as complimentary food and drinks, scroll down to see the involved gallery members and click into the URL link above for more information about the event!
