Eighteen units in Foo Tak Building in Wanchai are rented to artists and non-profit organisations at below market rates through the generosity of a visionary landlord, and Kongkee attends talks, readings, screenings, performances and exhibitions there as well as using the independent, not-for-profit bookstore and enjoying the company of other artists.
