At the branches there live all kinds of artists, media workers, designers, film promoters, bookstore operators, art promoters, cultural heritage conservationists and green live advocates. Different spaces constitute this tree and link up art and culture with daily living in an organic way, with creativity being exchanged through neighbourhood. It prepares the residents for accumulating more energy for flying higher and wider. Quietly, the fruits of the “Tree House” have been returned to this city through their art and culture action. ＊About FTB＊ 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.
