Hong Kong Arts Development Council (HKADC) hereby invites local primary, secondary and special schools to submit application for the Arts-in-School Partnership Scheme. The Scheme aims to foster the collaboration between local arts groups/organisations and schools, promote better use of school premises as arts space and bring arts into the school campus.
Applications from local arts groups/organisations were collected in August 2019. HKADC now invites interested local primary, secondary and special schools to submit their applications. HKADC will match the arts groups/organisations with the schools according to their respective applications, including the arts groups’ proposed usage, location preference and the schools’ requests etc. Successful applicants will receive a hiring grant directly paid by HKADC and a subsidy of not more than HK$80,000 per annum for hiring extra manpower, strengthening security measures, defraying additional utility costs and carrying out urgent repair works based on the actual costs of all expenditure items, and will start their partnership with the matched schools in early 2020. The Scheme also encourages partnering arts groups/organisations to discuss with the schools to engage their students in arts activities, e.g. creation, production, rehearsals, guided appreciation etc. to broaden students’ horizon.
How to apply:
Interested schools can refer to the application guidelines and form. Both documents can now be obtained from HKADC Administration Office (10/F, 1063 King’s Road, Quarry Bay, Hong Kong) or downloaded from HKADC website: www.hkadc.org.hk. Applications must be submitted and deposited in the collection box at HKADC Administration Office by 6:00pm on 29 November 2019 (Friday).
