Spark! Arts Programme for Children at Small Group Homes

01/01-31/12/2017

Art nourishes and enriches our lives and can change the way we see the world.

In 2013 to 2014, YAF implemented the first arts programme for Children at Small Group Homes. The intensive programme used art as a way to encourage participants to recognise their feelings and express their thoughts, helping young people to find their own voice and overcome social and personal inhibitions in a non-judgmental and non-competitive environment.

With the generous support of The Swire Group Charitable Trust, this inspiring programme continues next year with a new three-year edition that runs from 2017 to 2019. For the new programme, YAF has designed a series of fun and enriching visual and performing art experiences for over four hundreds youngsters aged between 4 and 18 living in Small Group Homes in Hong Kong.

Small and versatile, the ukulele has become one of Hong Kong’s favourite choices of musical instrument. With just four strings, it is easy to learn, and once you master a handful of chords you can play hundreds of songs!

Do you spend your day in an office cubicle? Are you driven crazy by the freezing air-conditioning or lift doors that close in your face as you’re rushing for lunch or to get home? Do you need a translator some days just to get through the office jargon, the conference calls, the never-ending meetings…
