香港藝術中心簡介

藝術中心於1977年成立,是一所非牟利及自負盈虧的藝術團體,多年來一直致力推廣當代藝術。中心是一所配備劇場、電影院、畫廊、教室、工作室、咖啡店以及辦公室的綜合性當代藝術中心,每月展出不同範疇的藝術節目,展示由本地及海外藝術家的作品。香港藝術中心的主要收入來源依賴捐款,以及將藝術中心樓層租出予各藝術團體的租金、香港藝術學院的課程學費, 以及門票收益。 

香港藝術中心透過推廣表演藝術、視覺及錄像藝術,以及其他全方位及終身學習的文化藝術教育課程,致力培育創意及藝術欣賞能力。中心不斷鼓勵本地藝術創作,每年均籌劃多個多元精彩藝術節目,包括電影及錄影,展覽與及表演等;亦舉辦藝術會議、講座、藝術節,以及公共藝術計畫等。 

香港藝術中心轄下的香港藝術學院是政府認可的學術機構,由一群充滿熱誠並擁有卓越成就的藝術家負責當中之教學工作。學院的學歷頒授課程集中在四個核心學術領域上,即藝術、應用藝術、媒體藝術和戲劇教育;提供的課程則包括基礎文憑、高級文憑、學士及碩士學位。此外,學院亦舉辦短期課程及其他外展活動,大大擴闊了藝術課程的範圍。學院最近獲教育局批出筲箕灣校舍拓建新院校,藉此進一步推動藝術在社區的發展。

Established in 1977, Hong Kong Arts Centre (HKAC) is a self-funding organization whose mission is to promote contemporary arts and culture within Hong Kong and beyond. The Centre provides a wide range of programmes featuring local and overseas artists, with facilities including theatres, a cinema, galleries, classrooms, studios, a café and office space. As a non-profit body, HKAC relies heavily on donations, rental income, arts course fees and box office income. Hong Kong Arts Centre is committed to nurturing creativity, arts and cultural engagement through its two-pronged approach; promoting contemporary performing arts, visual arts, film and video arts and providing lifelong and wide-reaching arts education. Home to artists' creative exploration, the Centre has featured numerous programmes in the presentation of various art forms, including film and video programmes, visual arts and performing arts programmes. It also presents conferences, seminars, art festivals and public art projects all through the year. Its education arm, the Hong Kong Art School, established in 2000, is an accredited institute staffed by a group of dedicated artists, who are active and distinguished practitioners in the field. The focus of its award-bearing curriculum lies in four core academic areas, namely, Fine Art, Applied Art, Media Art, and Applied Theatre & Drama Education, and its scope covers all academic levels ranging from Higher Diploma, Professional Diploma, Bachelor Degree to Master Degree. The short courses and outreach projects of the School that run parallel to the award-bearing curriculum span an even wider variety of artistic disciplines. With its recent acquisition of a campus site in Shau Kei Wan, the School aims at further bridging art and the community.
