CULTURE FOR TOMORROW (CFT) IS A NON-PROFIT ORGANISATION FOUNDED BY CULTURAL ENTREPRENEUR ADRIAN CHENG, TO ACTUALISE DESIGN AND ARCHITECTURAL INNOVATION.
- Actualise innovative ideas
- Stimulate community engagement
- Foster cultural exchange
WHAT WE DO
Actualise innovative ideas
Promoting design and architecture is central to our core initiative. Through pubic design competitions, cultural collaborations, and mentorships, we aim to nurture emerging designers and architects in Greater China, while allowing them a platform to connect with their counterpart overseas. Our projects will become testing grounds that actualise designs, with which the public can interact.
Stimulate community engagement
Good design and architecture are never just about the aesthetics. They must also fulfil a purpose, improve the quality of life and inspire dialogues among their users. This, we believe, is how designs can improve social interaction. With people and sustainability in mind, we aim to host public exhibitions, cross-cultural dialogues, creative workshops and forums around our projects to stimulate true community engagement.
Foster cultural exchange
Spatial design investigates the relations between physical and social spaces. It may invite individuals to sit down, reimagine the use of space or it could even reshape the community dynamics. Bottom line is, regardless of culture, physical space is the most relatable medium for the public. We invite creative minds from different cultural backgrounds to share their ideas in the hope of generating new ways of thinking, and new ways of living.
Adrian Cheng, Cultural Entrepreneur and Founder of K11 Art Foundation, founded the non-profit organisation Culture for Tomorrow (CFT) in 2017, with the aim of nurturing young talent in the design and architecture scenes in Greater China. Adrian believes that inventive and disruptive design ideas, with the necessary guidance, collaborations and resources, can help shape the future of our living culture. It is therefore his goal to make CFT a cross-cultural platform on which local and international designers and architects can connect, inspire one another and realise ideas that will bring about social impact.
Grew up in Hong Kong, Adrian furthered his studies in the United States and graduated from Harvard University with a Bachelor of Arts (Cum Laude) honours degree. He later received an Honorary Doctorate of Humanities degree from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), and an Honorary Fellowship from Lingnan University in 2014. He currently sits on the Board of the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority, and is a Trustee of the Royal Academy of Arts. His Asian and western experiences made him the bridge between both cultures, through which he introduces a new dimension to the community.
