The HKDC STUDIO, established in July 2016, is a pilot endeavour of HKDC to engage diverse stakeholders, including the community, as it further echoes HKDC’s mission to promote innovation as well as the wider and strategic use of design for economic and societal well-being.
With a dedicated space at PMQ, HKDC will be able to run workshops, roundtables and focus groups on topical issues or identifiable challenges, supporting design project case development and stakeholder engagement for advocacy, learning and knowledge exchange. The HKDC STUDIO will also serve as a learning and exhibition space to cultivate design thinking and foster understanding of the power of design in the community.
Hong Kong Design Centre (HKDC) is a non-profit organization founded in 2002 as a strategic partner of the HKSAR Government in establishing Hong Kong as centre of design excellence in Asia. HKDC continues its public mission in using design and innovation to drive value creation of business development and improve the well-being of society, through the provision of diverse exchange platforms, anchored by five major work directions: CONNECT, CELEBRATE, NURTURE, ADVANCE and ENGAGE.
HKDC’s flagship programmes include Business of Design Week (since 2002) – Asia leading annual conference and event on Design, Innovation and Brands; DFA Awards (since 2003) – the most recognized design awards from an Asia perspective; Design Incubation Programme (since 2012) – a 2-year incubation programme to nurture future design-preneurs; Knowledge of Design Week (since 2006) – an annual thematic design knowledge sharing platform on how design can solve complex challenges of our society.
