Standard Chartered Arts in the Park Mardi Gras 2015: Seeking Corporate Volunteers

Last year, our flagship community event Standard Chartered Arts in the Park 2014 drew over 80,000 visitors, including locals and tourists alike. Crowds poured into Victoria Park to watch performances, create art and cheer on the parades. Each year, Arts in the Park is an invaluable opportunity for thousands of young artists to showcase their talents and develop self-confidence and self-esteem.   We are currently preparing for Arts in the Park 2015 and need your help to reach an even wider audience. Get involved by sponsoring a guided tour for a group of underprivileged children or by hosting an art stall where members of the public can create artwork for the parade. Help make a difference – give the young people of Hong Kong a chance to express their creativity and enhance their self-esteem through art.   For more information, please email

Blood Brothers: Public Performances

This November, Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation presents its 2015 flagship musical Blood Brothers!   Twin brothers are separated at birth. One prospers, the other falls on hard times. They grow up to be friends then bitter enemies – living under the prophecy that the day they find out about their true relationship will be the last day of their lives.   Funny, captivating and heartbreakingly sad, the Olivier Award-winning Blood Brothers is one of theatre history’s longest running musicals. Hailed by UK’s Sunday Times as one of the best pieces of musical theatre ever written, it has been met with standing ovations time after time. With unforgettable songs like ‘Marilyn Monroe’, ‘Long Sunday Afternoon’ and ‘Tell Me It’s Not True’, Blood Brothers takes you on an exhilarating journey, right up to its shattering but inevitable conclusion.   Tickets go on sale through HK Ticketing on 15 October. Get updates by signing up to our online mailing list! Click here for school bookings.
