The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: stART Up Community Arts Project 2021

The consumer culture has convinced us that we are all entitled to luxuries. But extravagant lifestyles come at a cost to our planet – increased carbon emissions, global warming, extreme and unpredictable weather and a host of environmental pollution issues that threaten all living things. Before we exhaust Earth beyond repair, let’s stop and think, and take action against climate change.

The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: stART Up Community Arts Project 2021, organised by Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation and funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, uses art to raise awareness of climate change and the need for environmental protection. Over a three-month period, in workshops led by 20 professional artists, more than 500 youngsters came together to create a series of visual and performing art pieces to reflect their thoughts on climate change. Join us to learn more and help us take a stand to protect our planet!
