The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: stART Up Community Arts Project – “Voices Unleashed” Music Programme – Digital Release

Between August 2023 and January 2024, the transformative programme Voices Unleashed brought emerging songwriters together with members of the disabled community to craft uplifting and original Cantonese songs. The result was three incredible pieces: Loneliness Prescription, Path Without Footsteps, and Nebula M78. Each song was professionally arranged and recorded by the talented mixed-ability Voices Unleashed choir, who also performed the songs live at a number of cultural events. You can now hear these three great songs and watch our video documentary about the programme by following these links: hear the three songs, watch the Voices Unleashed documentary. Music has the ability to stir our emotions and touch our souls. Let us know how these songs make you feel by leaving a comment on our social media pages.

Fuse – Seeking Schools and Organisations

Fuse is a community-based arts project designed to empower young individuals from low-income families and ethnic minority backgrounds, and nurture their creative potential. The comprehensive three-year programme runs from January 2024 until March 2026, and is supported by The Burberry Foundation as part of the Burberry Inspire global youth empowerment initiative. We are currently seeking organisations, local primary and secondary schools for the Fuse Artist-in-School Programme – a series of creative, in-school workshops that bring the magic of visual and performing arts directly into the classroom through activities such as dragon dances, shadow puppetry, illustration, rainbow calligraphy and much more. Aimed at primary schools and secondary school junior forms with ethnic minority students aged 10 and above, the workshops integrate the arts into your school and community, nurturing shared creativity, fostering inclusivity and strengthening students’ sense of belonging. To support diversity, priority will be given to schools with non-Chinese students. Register at:
