West Kowloon Cultural District (WKCD)
The West Kowloon Cultural District (WKCD) is a development project that aims to form an international-grade arts and culture hub on an area of land in West Kowloon, Hong Kong. WKCD will create an iconic presence on the project’s site overlooking Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour, which will include 17 arts and cultural venues, and a 23-hectare park, which will incorporate an open air performance space.
Key elements of the development is the M+ museum and the Lyric Theatre. The M+ is the museum for visual culture, focusing on 20th and 21st century art, design and architecture and moving image. The Lyric Theatre will be a centre of excellence showcasing the best of Hong Kong and international dance and theatre.
