Arts, Culture & Heritage
Font Size

The promotion and preservation of arts, culture and heritage is an indispensible part of improving the quality of life of Hong Kong people. Thanks in no small part to the Club's unwavering support of arts and cultural events, such as the Hong Kong Arts Festival, Le French May Arts Festival and major exhibitions organised as part of "The Hong Kong Jockey Club Series" in partnership with Leisure and Cultural Services Department, a great variety of world-class events and activities have been offered to the public. Outreach and education programmes accompanying these events also give more people the opportunity to share in these important arts and cultural activities, as well as to engage the interest of younger audiences.

Of equal importance, the Club's support provides opportunities for local artists to showcase their talent to the world – a commission complemented by the Club's donation to the construction of the only tertiary institution dedicated to nurturing artistic talent in the city, The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.

The Club takes the preservation of Hong Kong's culture and heritage seriously, as evidenced by its support of three local traditions that are included in the national list of intangible cultural heritage, namely Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance, Cheung Chau Jiao Festival and the Tai O Traditional Dragon Boat Water Parade. In addition, by financing the conversion of a 1970s factory building into a vibrant arts centre-cum-artist village – the Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre at Shek Kip Mei, and by revitalising the Central Police Station Compound (now known as Tai Kwun) into a centre for heritage, contemporary arts, and leisure, the Club achieves the win-win situation of promoting the development of creative industries while preserving Hong Kong people's collective memory.
