DUNCAN PESCOD GBS, JP – West Kowloon: Challenging the idea of Hong Kong as a cultural desert
West Kowloon will not only be a world-class platform for international artistic talent but also a place to incubate and showcase Hong Kong’s own unique creativity and culture – while breaking boundaries to create a cultural district that successfully balances culture and commerce for their mutual benefit.

Discuss the role the WKCD will play in determining the cultural landscape of Hong Kong in the 21st century; providing a vibrant creative hub that will redefine not just the geography of Hong Kong but also its place on the global stage.
