Celebrating Quarry Bay’s new community space, Quarryside!
To celebrate the official launch of Quarryside in Quarry Bay in June 2023, Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation (HKYAF) was invited to create a site-specific dance video exploring the beautiful features of the grounds. Choreographed by Kelsey Ang, the dance film features four brilliant HKYAF dancers: Andrea Chung, Andrea Wong, Chantal Lai, and Cherie Pang.
Quarryside is a brand new leisure space open to all, providing opportunities for community groups to host multi-functional and diverse events like performances, leisure spaces and workshops addressing areas of creative health, creative placemaking and creative sustainability. The site offers over 3,700 sqm of open space, is partly open 24 hours a day and its architecture is inspired by Quarry Bay’s industrial past. Operated by St. James’ Settlement and sponsored by the Swire Group Charitable Trust (Swire Trust) and with Swire Properties as the Supporting Partner of the project, Quarryside will hold trial operations in July 2023 and gradually open to the public.
