GDN - a network of the world's leading design organizations

Hong Kong Federation of Design Associations

The Hong Kong Federation of Design Associations (FHKDA) started in 2000 before the incorporation of the Hong Kong Design Centre. It acts as a platform for the discussion of design, education, cultural policy and infrastructure development. FHKDA provides room for expression of ideas and opinions from the industry to the government. In recent years, FHKDA has focused its effort in facilitating inter-city exchange programmes and communication, as well as fostering collaborations between designers/brands from around the region. Apart from running Shenzhen-Hong Kong collaborations and Taiwan-Hong Kong cultural cooperation forums annually, FHKDA has been actively participating in the annual Global Design Network (GDN), to promote exchange and to engage in the proactive discussion with other organizations and institutions in Hong Kong and other regions.
Founding members of FHKDA include Hong Kong Designers Association (HKDA), Hong Kong Design Centre (HKDC), Hong Kong Fashion Designers Association (HKFDA), Hong Kong Interior Design Association (HKIDA), and Chartered Society of Designers, Hong Kong (CSDHK). Meanwhile, FHKDA participates in a number of projects in collaboration with HKDC deemed appropriate to its operation research and development. Up to present, FHKDA has a total of 15 Professional Members.
FHKDA aims to consolidate the industry efforts in Hong Kong by building stronger relationships with key local professional bodies and design institutions, and also to consolidate resources and efforts around the region. In the coming years, FHKDA will focus mainly on the partnership with Shenzhen, which will lead to the creation of a dynamic front around the Pearl River Delta Economic Zone. In the near future, FHKDA will also be looking at working more closely with Taiwan, and ultimately linking up Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Taiwan design industries; creating a design hub different from Shanghai and Beijing.
