Hong Kong Arts Centre, Comix Home Base

Comix Home Base is a collaborative project by the Hong Kong Arts Centre and the Urban Renewal Authority (URA).  It is also the URA's first project focusing on cultural and creative industries.  A revitalisation of a cluster of ten pre-war Grade 2 historic buildings on Mallory Street and Barrows Street, Comix Home Base serves as an important connector to the neighbourhood.  Six buildings on Mallory Street and the façade of four other Burrows Street buildings have been adaptively reused.  In addition, there are open spaces for other activities.

 

The establishment of Comix Home Base not only provides a new cultural landmark in Wan Chai but also brands Wan Chai as Hong Kong's first art community for homegrown comics and animation, adding much diversity to the district.  Besides, Comix Home Base acts as a platform for the communication and interchange between local and overseas artists.  With a place to meet and interact, comics and animation talents are nurtured and related products are promoted, fostering the growth of this art form into an even richer asset for Hong Kong.  In other words, Comix Home Base has the power to strengthen the development of creative industries both locally and regionally, as well as on the global scale.
