Standard Chartered Youth Creative Industry Employment Scheme – “Unplugged” Performance for Schools
Easy internet connections and cheap smartphones make access to information easier than at any time in the past. But this convenience comes at a price. According to a 2020 survey, students aged 7 to 17 spent more than 3.5 hours on their phones during weekends. It is believed that internet addiction among students is an increasing concern.
Our lively physical theatre production “Unplugged” is designed to help senior primary school students learn how to navigate the online world – how to be mindful of people they meet online, how to stay cybersafe and how to recognise and address fake information. Educating students through entertainment, the 20-minute performance tours schools in March and April 2022 free of charge. Participating schools may also choose to join post-performance workshops offering great opportunities for sharing and discussion.
If you would like to bring this fun, free theatre production to your students, simply fill out (Chinese only) and return it to !
The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: stART Up Community Arts Project 2022: Cantonese Idioms Illustration Teacher Workshop
If you speak Cantonese, chances are you know the saying: “hugging the Buddha’s leg in an emergency” (臨急抱佛腳 / lam gap bou fat goek) meaning “seeking help at the last moment”. Like this one, many Cantonese idioms blend folk wisdom with a hint of sarcasm and suggest comic visual images. Join us in January to find out more and explore the humorous visual possibilities of idioms.
In this fun teachers’ workshop, artist Candice Keung takes inspiration from local advertising designs from the 1970s and 1980s and illustrator Ah To’s comic books “The Great Canton and Hong Kong Proverbs” and “Cantonese.jpg”, and guides primary and secondary school teachers to create illustrations of Cantonese idioms.
The workshop is part of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: stART Up Community Arts Project 2022 organised by HKYAF and funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust. This free-of-charge workshop is designed to help primary and secondary school teachers pass on new skills and enhance young people’s understanding and appreciation of traditional Cantonese idioms and local Cantonese culture. Completed student artwork will be collected and featured in a public exhibition in mid-March 2022. If you are interested in taking part, please fill in the before 15 December 2021. Successful registration will be confirmed by email. Limited quota, first come, first served.
