“It is the space to provide freedom for different cultural elements and art forms to cross, for performers and the public to interact. Come and participate, on-stage or off-stage, at the front or back of house, just to get immersed in activities in this cultural space. Can this journey of exploration and discovery through art be a forerunner of the future West Kowloon?”
