More Arts Corners at Hong Kong Park and Victoria Park


The public is invited to visit the second phase of "Arts Corners" at Hong Kong Park and Victoria Park starting tomorrow (April 5) and Sunday (April 6) respectively.

The new "Arts Corners" are staged by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department at the outdoor area near to the Museum of Teaware in Hong Kong Park and South Pavilion and South Pavilion Plaza in Victoria Park.

A Department spokesman said the first phase of the "Arts Corners" at these two parks had just been completed. "As the two 'Arts Corners' were well received by both the park-goers and stall operators, the Department has decided to launch the second phase of 'Arts Corners' at these two parks," he said.

The "Arts Corner" at Hong Kong Park will open on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays from 12 noon to 6 pm from tomorrow (April 5) to September 30. It will have 10 stalls offering services including painting, photography, calligraphy, portrait sketching and traditional Chinese crafts.

The "Arts Corner" at Victoria Park will open on Sundays and public holidays from 10 am to 6 pm from Sunday (April 6) to September 28. It will have 24 stalls selling recreational, arts and cultural related souvenirs; it will also offer services including painting, photography, calligraphy and sketching.

The Department has also set up two "Arts Fun Fairs" at Kowloon Park and Lai Chi Kok Park (Stage III) and an "Arts and Crafts" Square at Tsuen Wan Park.

"The 'Arts Corners' aim to help the public to cultivate an appreciation of the arts, enhancing the arts culture of Hong Kong," the spokesman said.

"They will not only enhance attractiveness of the parks to local and overseas visitors, but also provide more employment opportunities directly or indirectly and boost the economies of local communities.

"They will be a lot of fun for our visitors and are definitely places not to be missed," the spokesman added.

People of all ages are welcome to visit the "Arts Corners" at Hong Kong Park and Victoria Park. Admission is free.
