Online enrolment for EKCC's interactive immersive experience "Around the Corner" to start from April 15
     The Leisure and Cultural Services Department will present an interactive immersive experience "Around the Corner" at The Corner, an indoor space on the ground floor of the East Kowloon Cultural Centre (EKCC), from April 22 to July 30. Admission is free. Online enrolment for free admission will be available from 10am on April 15 (Monday).

     As an incubator for the development of arts and technology, the EKCC is committed to promoting arts technology, identifying new emerging trends in the arts, and seizing the opportunities that come with innovation and technology. "Around the Corner" is the first community engagement programme organised at the EKCC. The programme, created by arts group XRT, makes use of arts technology to narrate the past of the Kowloon East neighbourhood. Through sounds and images, participants can revisit the community's lives in the past and present in Kowloon East and explore the connection between the two during the process.
     Each session of "Around the Corner" is about 30 minutes long and with a quota of 15 participants for a better audience experience. Online enrolment for the programme will start from 10am on April 15 for the first week's timeslots from April 22 to 28, and from 10am on every Monday for the following week thereafter. Each email address can be used to enrol for a maximum of four visitors in the same session.
     Visitors who have successfully made a reservation should arrive at the venue 10 minutes prior to their chosen time slot and present the QR code in the confirmation email to staff on-site for free admission. All remaining quotas will be released to walk-in participants 15 minutes before the start of each session. Members of the public can register on the programme website (www.ekcc.hk/around_the_corner). "Around the Corner" will be closed for maintenance every Wednesday, except for public holidays, and on May 2 and 16.
     XRT is a Hong Kong-based forward-thinking collective dedicated to pushing the boundaries of technology and art fusion, providing invaluable artistic experiences.
