Miller Performing Arts: Pull Back the Curtain 2021 – Seeking Youth Participants

Date: 05 – 09, 12 – 17|07|2021 Time: 10:30am – 3:00pm Application requirement: In 250 or more words, please describe a person from the 20th century who has inspired you most, and why (please answer in English). From Frida Kahlo to Neil Armstrong, from The Beatles to David Bowie, this year, Pull Back the Curtain goes back in time and takes inspiration from some of the greatest figures in 20th century music, art and history. In workshops led by professional writer and theatre maker Becky Baker, participants look at the lives of influential popular culture icons, use the stories they uncover to stimulate ideas for scripts, then take on the roles of writer and director to devise their own theatrical pieces from conception to performance.  Participants are also introduced to a diverse array of contemporary theatre practices and creative script writing techniques – such as monologues, verbatim theatre and spoken word – to help them develop a diverse writing toolkit and create an exciting and innovative script.   If you’d like to craft your own original performances, join us this summer to hone your skills and create work that celebrates hope and survival in changing times.

Jockey Club “Project Silver” Intergenerational Arts Project: Colouring App Introduction Sessions

Colouring is a fun way to relax and be creative – but most colouring apps are designed with younger tech-savvy audiences in mind. The Jockey Club “Project Silver” Intergenerational Arts Project Colouring App is the first colouring app exclusively designed for the elderly community in Hong Kong.  Featuring iconic images of old Hong Kong created by professional artist ayip and local youth participants, the user-friendly mobile app offers two tailor-made levels of complexity – to cater for different abilities, encourage digital inclusion, and help elderly users master touch-screen skills in a fun and creative way. Designed for use on iPads and tablet devices only, the app is now available for free at the App Store and Google Play. Between May and November 2021, Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation staff will also provide a series of free-of-charge introduction sessions at elderly care centres and organisations to help residents and visitors learn how to use the app and encourage them to explore their creativity through digital technology. The introduction sessions are available on a first come, first served basis. Apply now (available in Chinese)!
