Standard Chartered Arts in the Park 2020

Standard Chartered Arts in the Park goes online for the first time on 2 November and presents seven days of exciting arts programmes and activities. The project also includes the brand-new AIP at Home Art Pack – a collection of creative activities complete with recorded narration and performance videos that help children flex their artistic muscles and relax and have fun while social distancing at home with the family.

This year, the inspiration comes from eleven classic fairy tales, featuring storytelling theatre performances, a finger puppet parade, dance performances, a Paper Imaginarium experience, a capella performances, an exhibition from the Emerging Artist Programme and more online.

Standard Chartered Arts in the Park is Hong Kong’s largest youth arts festival. Traditionally held outdoors with giant puppet parades and performances in Victoria Park and Causeway Bay, this year's festival has been specially devised to take place online. The project provides young people with exciting opportunities to enhance important life skills through the arts. Visit www.scartsinthepark.com for more details.

HISTORY OF STANDARD CHARTERED ARTS IN THE PARK MARDI GRAS

Standard Chartered Arts in the Park (AIP) is one of the city’s largest annual community arts event, held in November every year.

We are grateful for Standard Chartered Hong Kong’s unflailing support over the past 19 years.

Launched in 2001, Standard Chartered Arts in the Park  Mardi Gras is an annual youth art education programme that lasts for six months and culminates in the two-day fiesta in November. Each year, over 3,500 young people from 200 schools and youth organisations participate in the event; their involvement ranges from developing original performance pieces to working with professional artists in schools to create parade and exhibition art. By providing these youngsters with exciting opportunities to develop skills in art, creativity, performance, team-building, and leadership, the programme is contributing to the long-term development of Hong Kong’s youth, as well as benefitting the community at large. 

Since the first Mardi Gras event was first held at Stanley Plaza in 2001, the programme has developed into one of the most exciting youth art festivals in Hong Kong. The event moved from Stanley to Victoria Park in 2008, with the event being renamed Standard Chartered Arts in the Park Mardi Gras. In 2012, the Grand Finale Parade expanded out of the park and onto the streets of Causeway Bay, and in 2013 the very first illuminated Night Parade took place. The Mardi Gras is inspired by international arts festivals and carnivals such as London’s Notting Hill Carnival and Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro Carnival.
