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.
