Foo Tak Building looks traditional and ordinary. It is a typical commercial/residential building having 14 floors with two units on each floor. Since 2003, there have been 18 units leased to art and cultural entities at a sponsored rate through ACO; the rental is much lower than the market price.   Just as important, ACO exercises low degree of management to leave more room for self-discipline being exercised by the sponsored art and culture entities. ACO has stipulated only a few rules and allowed all kinds of ideas / creations / experiments / plans / actions / organizations to seed, grow, practice and perform here.

 

Other than rental sponsorship, we the ACO team are happy to liaise with the units to promote sharing of experience and opinions. We are also promoting varied ways to foster a community ecology here with a sense of resource sharing and helping one another.  

 

If you wish to become a member of Foo Tak Building, you are welcome to email us a concise application proposal containing your objective and ways of using a space in Foo Tak Building.  We will consider it whenever there a vacant unit arises.  

Hospitality means primarily the creation of free space where the stranger can enter and become a friend instead of an enemy. Hospitality is not to change people, but to offer them space where change can take place.
― Henri Nouwen (1975)
 
 

The notorious high price strategy for land development has all along strangled this city’s livelihood and possibilities.

 

It is so invaluable for ACO to take root in the centre of the city – somewhere amid Causeway Bay and Wan Chai. Hence, it is only natural for us to embrace such a mission: we should try our best to release as much precious spatial resources as we can so as to help develop art and culture for this city. We can have a more diverse and vibrant civil society when the strength of art and culture grows.
