Standard Chartered Arts in the Park Mardi Gras 2016: Seeking Project Artists

One of Hong Kong's largest community arts event is back this November! Each year, Standard Chartered Arts in the Park Mardi Gras works with over 3,500 young people and offers the public an opportunity to show their creativity and experience the happiness in art. Artists play an essential role in Arts in the Park – hosting art stalls during the two-day artistic weekend or running artist-in-school residencies where thousands of parade puppets and costumes are created in collaboration with students. We are now seeking project artists for Arts in the Park 2016! If you have exciting ideas and are passionate about inspiring teenagers and the public to enjoy art, please make an online submission on or before 10 August. Related teaching experience is an advantage.
