In order to help local artists in opening up overseas markets, establishing international network, and showcasing to the world outstanding Hong Kong artists and their works, the Hong Kong Arts Development Council (HKADC) supported Hong Kong music practitioners to attend Classical:NEXT in 2018 and 2019. In view of the positive responses received, HKADC plans to participate in Classical:NEXT again in Rotterdam, the Netherlands from 18 to 21 May 2020 and now invites eligible Hong Kong music practitioners to apply for the captioned subsidy scheme.
Since the first edition in 2012, Classical:NEXT is an annual international music expo which covers both classical and contemporary music. It was born out of the idea to provide a platform for music practitioners from all around the world to exchange, observe, discuss and explore the new trend of music development. In the 2020 edition, the HKADC will offer subsidies to a maximum of 10 musicians and arts administrators for attending Classical:NEXT 2020. The HKADC will provide a maximum of HK$30,000 as a subsidy to support the successful applicants to participate in Classical:NEXT 2020 in the Netherlands .
Interested parties are advised to refer to the “Information on Application” and application form of the subsidy scheme. Both documents can now be obtained from the HKADC Administration Office or downloaded from the HKADC website: www.hkadc.org.hk. Applications must be submitted and deposited in the collection box at the HKADC Administration Office by 6pm on 20 January 2020 (Monday). Applications submitted by post must be postmarked on or before the deadline. Late submission or submission by fax or email will not be processed.
Classical:NEXT is an annual international music expo which provides an exchange platform for music practitioners from all around the world. Classical:NEXT 2020 is expected to be attended by 1,300 music professionals from 50 countries. The four-day music expo features an array of programmes, including conferences, showcases, project pitches, networking meetings, mentoring sessions and expo.
