//  About the organization  //
As we embark on the 21st century, Hong Kong's flourishing comics and animation industries are in great need for an exhibition hub and centre for exchange that connects local artists with the international community.  In light of this need, Comix Home Base is now established in Wan Chai.  It is an important first step attesting to the maturity of Hong Kong's comics and animation industries, promoting innovation and injecting artistic energy into the local community. A revitalisation of a cluster of ten pre-war Grade 2 historic buildings on Mallory Street and Barrows Street, Comix Home Base serves as an important connector to the neighbourhood. In fact, Hong Kong is the world's third largest comics market, after Japan and the United States.  We should not overlook the potential of comics and animation, let alone the shape of their future. The establishment of Comix Home Base not only provides a new cultural landmark in Wan Chai but also brands Wan Chai as Hong Kong's first art community for homegrown comics and animation, adding much diversity to the district.  Besides, Comix Home Base acts as a platform for the communication and interchange between local and overseas artists.  With a place to meet and interact, comics and animation talents are nurtured and related products are promoted, fostering the growth of this art form into an even richer asset for Hong Kong.  In other words, Comix Home Base has the power to strengthen the development of creative industries both locally and regionally, as well as on the global scale.
