(May 13, 2020, Hong Kong) Given the various challenges as well as opportunities Hong Kong faces in its future development, such as lack of available land resources, an ageing population, sustainable development plus issues surrounding potential redistribution of resources within the Greater Bay Area as well as talent migration and other societal matters, there is a pressing need to generate a host of creative and viable cross-sectoral ideas to help improve overall liveability in the Territory. With this in mind, the local architectural industry in collaboration with a group of experts from the commercial, arts and design, academic, and NGO sectors, will showcase their creative exhibits at the Hong Kong Collateral Event of the 17th Venice Biennale International Architecture Exhibition in order to propose solutions to help shape a better future for Hong Kong.
The outbreak of the coronavirus disease-2019 (“COVID-19”) since February has gravely impacted arts practitioners and organisations as their work has been cancelled or postponed indefinitely. To relieve the financial burdens faced by the arts sector, the Anti-epidemic Fund set up by the HKSAR Government provided a funding of $50 million in February through the Home Affairs Bureau (HAB) to Hong Kong Arts Development Council (HKADC) to launch the “Support Scheme for Arts & Cultural Sector”. The Scheme aims to assist the sector during this difficult period. HKADC started to accept applications on March 20 and there is no deadline for application at the moment until full disbursement of the HAB’s funding or further notice.
Hong Kong Arts Development Council (HKADC) first launched the “Support Scheme for Arts & Cultural Sector” before Chinese New Year to strengthen support towards small and medium-sized arts organisations and arts practitioners. The original budget is HK$5 million. Owing to the adverse impact of COVID-19, almost all arts events have been cancelled or postponed since February. The situation gravely impacted the work and livelihood of local arts organisations and arts practitioners.
