#hashtag – Live Recording for Schools

Last November, HKYAF presented the gripping original production #hashtag live on stage. Through theatre, dance, music and video the performance brings to life the powerful and sometimes deceptive world of social media, and shines a light on issues facing many young people today, such as cyber bullying, abortion, suicide and self-harm, that are often considered taboo. Written and directed by Lindsey McAlister, the sold-out production featured a cast of 25 of the most talented youth actors and dancers in Hong Kong and was a resounding success, with much positive feedback from the audience, cast members and parents. We are now pleased to offer a free-of-charge recording of the live performance of #hashtag to schools interested in sharing it with their students. Apply now and receive a link via email to download and/or stream the recording. Notes for Schools * This show contains mature themes, including cyber bullying, abortion, suicide and self-harm and may cause emotional distress. Teachers should watch the recording in advance to ensure that it is suitable for their students * Suitable for ages 10 and above * Performed in English without subtitles * Running time approx. 100 minutes Synopsis Five teenagers join an elite chatroom, eager and ready to impress. They click. They swipe. They post. They laugh. But soon they discover that not everything is quite what it seems.

Art Angels (CSR)

Art Angels: Interested in corporate volunteering?

Heaven is not the only place to look for angels – kind and generous souls can be found right here in the city. Every year, HKYAF helps a variety of corporations to fulfill their Corporate Social Responsibility needs by providing fun and unusual hands-on art experiences that enable their employees to give back to the community. Through innovative activities such as mural painting, public art treasure hunts, puppet making workshops and African drum jamming, Art Angels brings the magic of the arts to communities who seldom get the chance to experience it, including children from low-income families and special needs youth. Help us ignite someone's dream through art – together we can provide a supportive, rewarding experience and shape the lives of those who are less fortunate.
