Draw HK 2020: Seeking Artists
“I dream my painting and I paint my dream,” said the artist Van Gogh. Draw HK helps anyone who has ever dreamt about creating their own artwork pick up a pencil and let their dreams take flight. Organised by Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation and sponsored by China CITIC Bank International Limited, Draw HK is a new community art project, first launched in early 2019. In the opening months, it has helped over 700 local students and 18,000 local and overseas visitors discover the joy of drawing through a series of free drawing workshops and an exhibition of student artwork. In preparation for Draw HK 2020, we are now seeking professional artists who are passionate about sharing their love of drawing and interested in working with participants of different ages. Selected artists will lead educational drawing programmes that take place between January and April 2020. If you are interested in taking part, please send your full resume to email@example.com.

The pieces will be recorded in a professional recording studio and used as part of an original, social issue-based public service announcement dance film.

The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: stART Up Community Arts Project 2020: Playwriting Programme - REFRESH
Let us help you give voice to your thoughts and bring your imagination to life. Learn how to write a script for the theatre and create an impactful piece on environmental pollution and climate change. Our playwriting programme is led by multi-award-winning playwright Loong Man-hong, whose screenplay for the Hong Kong film Trivisa (樹大招風) won Best Original Screenplay at the Golden Horse Awards and Best Screenplay at the Hong Kong Film Awards, and whose stage works include commissions for the Hong Kong Arts Festival and the TV productions Inbound Troubles (老表，你好嘢！) and Finding Her Voice (牛下女高音). Under Man-hong’s guidance, participants will explore the impact of environmental pollution and climate change, and write 15-minute plays. At the end of the programme, selected scripts will be shared at a rehearsed sharing performance in a theatre setting. Whether you want your writing to shock or provide a thought-provoking warning, the programme encourages you to harness the power of words and theatre, and inspire audiences to take positive action against climate disruption.
