About the South Island Cultural District (SICD)
Founded in 2013, SICD currently consists of 19 galleries and art spaces in the South Island areas of Wong Chuk Hang and Tin Wan. With the exception of Central, no other district in Hong Kong hosts so many high-quality galleries, and no other district has so many galleries in large industrial spaces. SICD is a major evolution of the Hong Kong art scene, and South Island has become Hong Kong’s new destination for contemporary art.
