The Centre provides a wide range of programmes featuring local and overseas artists, with facilities including theatres, a cinema, galleries, classrooms, studios, a café and office space. As a non-profit body, HKAC relies heavily on donations, rental income, arts course fees and box office income.

Hong Kong Arts Centre is committed to nurturing creativity, arts and cultural engagement through its two-pronged approach; promoting contemporary performing arts, visual arts, film and video arts and providing lifelong and wide-reaching arts education. Home to artists’ creative exploration, the Centre has featured numerous programmes in the presentation of various art forms, including film and video programmes, visual arts and performing arts programmes. It also presents conferences, seminars, art festivals and public art projects all through the year.

Its education arm, the Hong Kong Art School, established in 2000, is an accredited institute staffed by a group of dedicated artists, who are active and distinguished practitioners in the field. The focus of its award-bearing curriculum lies in four core academic areas, namely, Fine Art, Applied Art, Media Art, and Applied Theatre & Drama Education, and its scope covers all academic levels ranging from Higher Diploma, Professional Diploma, Bachelor Degree to Master Degree. The short courses and outreach projects of the School that run parallel to the award-bearing curriculum span an even wider variety of artistic disciplines.
