香港視覺藝術中心是一個開放的、主導式的藝術空間,着重藝術教育、推廣和研究三元發展。除了向大眾傳遞藝術知識,更提供專業的藝術設備和資源,以激發藝術愛好者及新進藝術家的藝術創作經驗及技巧。

於設備方面,中心設有完備的陶瓷、雕塑及版畫共九個專業藝術工作室,另設有一間演講廳、一個展覽廳及兩間多用途活動室,方便藝術工作者及團體租用,以進行藝術創作和舉行多類型的活動。

Following two decades of commitment to the promotion of local art, the Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre (vA!) administered by the Art Promotion Office has been making eager preparations to celebrate its 21st anniversary. Coincidently, a brand new chapter in vA!'s development was opened when the Art Promotion Office's new facility, Oi!, was launched in May this year. The Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre (VA!) is an open and multi-directional art space that focuses on art education, promotion and research. VA! aims to empower members of the public in art through the transfer of knowledge, to inspire art lovers and emerging artists through the sharing of experience and to strengthen their technique through the provision of professional facilities and art resources. A place to nurture new blood in art, VA! acts as a facilitator of artistic creativity in Hong Kong and its neighbouring cities, an incubator that brings innovative insights and exciting stimulus to local art communities through a wide range of activities, including international art and cultural exchanges, exhibitions, workshops, demonstrations, lectures and artist-in-residence programmes. VA! is home to nine studios that are fully equipped for creative work in sculpture, printmaking and ceramics, plus a lecture theatre, an exhibition hall and two multi-purpose rooms. All of these facilities are available for hire by artists and arts groups looking for a venue to pursue their creativity or organise functions and activities.
