The Programme provides an attachment opportunity to local arts practitioners and producers with potential to further develop their professional skills and network. It is now open for application.

‘Professional Attachment at OzAsia Festival 2017’ will offer one attachment place for about 22 weeks on a full-time basis from June to early-November 2017 at the AFC. The actual placement period will be finalised between the selected candidate and the AFC. The selected candidate will mainly participate in festival coordination and programming, producing, media marketing and promotion of the OzAsia Festival 2017. With the help of the AFC, the selected candidate will also have the chance to visit other cultural institutes in order to enrich his/her attachment experience. A bursary of HK$208,000 will be provided for the successful candidate to cover accommodation, transportation, subsistence during the placement period and one economy class return flight ticket.

The said Programme is part of the Arts Administrators’ Training Projects which are supported by the Home Affairs Bureau.
