藝術推廣辦事處轄下的香港視覺藝術中心(vA!)承接過去20年推動本地藝術發展，踏入第21個年頭適逢辦事處另一新設施「油街實現」(Oi!) 於今年五月誕生，標誌着 vA! 亦同時揭開新的一頁。
Following two decades of commitment to the promotion of local art, the Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre (vA!) administered by the Art Promotion Office has been making eager preparations to celebrate its 21st anniversary. Coincidently, a brand new chapter in vA!'s development was opened when the Art Promotion Office's new facility, Oi!, was launched in May this year. The Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre (VA!) is an open and multi-directional art space that focuses on art education, promotion and research. VA! aims to empower members of the public in art through the transfer of knowledge, to inspire art lovers and emerging artists through the sharing of experience and to strengthen their technique through the provision of professional facilities and art resources. A place to nurture new blood in art, VA! acts as a facilitator of artistic creativity in Hong Kong and its neighbouring cities, an incubator that brings innovative insights and exciting stimulus to local art communities through a wide range of activities, including international art and cultural exchanges, exhibitions, workshops, demonstrations, lectures and artist-in-residence programmes. VA! is home to nine studios that are fully equipped for creative work in sculpture, printmaking and ceramics, plus a lecture theatre, an exhibition hall and two multi-purpose rooms. All of these facilities are available for hire by artists and arts groups looking for a venue to pursue their creativity or organise functions and activities.
