We offer the following scholarship and training programmes to provide internship, study and overseas exchange opportunities for local arts practitioners. These programmes aim to broaden their horizons and enhance their professional capabilities.
To cultivate diverse arts talents, HKADC now launches a new programme to match arts organisations and arts groups with recent graduates and provide internship opportunities in various art forms and different positions to them. The Programme aims to enhance graduates’ understanding of the operation of arts organisations and the industry, thereby encouraging them to make long-term professional development in the industry. Furthermore, the Programme enables arts organisations to identify and absorb potential talents and thus fostering a sustainable development of the local art scene.
The scheme nurtures potential arts practitioners and offers internship opportunities at local arts organisations to outstanding participants who aspire to start a career in arts production/administration. It aims to equip them with knowledge and solid experience of arts administration/production and arts organisation operation, and to encourage their long-term development in the sector.
HKADC collaborates with different world acclaimed arts and cultural organisations to organise internship and training programmes for promising arts administrators and practitioners with leadership potential to further develop their professional skills and network, and to support the long-term development of arts and culture in Hong Kong.
Recent partners include:
The scholarships aim to nature outstanding individuals and expand their knowledge and skills. They support promising local arts administrators, who possess relevant experience, to pursue arts administration related Master’s degrees / professional programmes or business administration related professional programmes.
The scheme supports experienced local personnel in arts administration/management to conduct in-depth overseas study visits in various formats, including observations, interviews and analysis on a particular theme. The discussions and reflections gained in the overseas visits would further contribute to the professional and long-term development of arts practitioners and organisations, as well as the arts sector in Hong Kong.
In collaboration with overseas training or arts and cultural institutions, local arts organisations are commissioned to deliver overseas arts administration related intensive in-service training programmes in Hong Kong. It aims to enhance the capability of local arts leaders, bring in more professional arts management best practices and international network from around the world.
