The Oriental Ceramic Society is an independent non-profit cultural organisation that presents a vibrant programme of lectures, masterclasses, and special collector events. Our activities are made possible by income generated from membership dues, events, and the generosity of our speakers, and patrons. You can support the Society by joining as a member, or sponsoring individual events or projects.

The Oriental Ceramic Society of Hong Kong was incorporated as a company limited by guarantee in 1992 and is recognised as a charitable institution by the Inland Revenue Department. Donations of over HK$100 to the Society are deductible for Hong Kong tax purposes.

Notes
Membership dues are collected on a calendar year basis. New members joining within the last three months of the calendar year will enjoy membership through the following year. Recently we planned to introduce a new membership structure in order to sustain the work of the Society, however, in light of the ongoing uncertainties created by the Covid-19 pandemic, this has been delayed. Members joining in 2022, will continue to enjoy the current rates for the remainder of the year.
