The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: stART Up Community Arts Project 2020: Playwriting Programme - REFRESH
Let us help you give voice to your thoughts and bring your imagination to life. Learn how to write a script for the theatre and create an impactful piece on environmental pollution and climate change.
Our playwriting programme is led by multi-award-winning playwright Loong Man-hong, whose screenplay for the Hong Kong film Trivisa (樹大招風) won Best Original Screenplay at the Golden Horse Awards and Best Screenplay at the Hong Kong Film Awards, and whose stage works include commissions for the Hong Kong Arts Festival and the TV productions Inbound Troubles (老表，你好嘢！) and Finding Her Voice (牛下女高音).
Under Man-hong’s guidance, participants will explore the impact of environmental pollution and climate change, and write 15-minute plays. At the end of the programme, selected scripts will be shared at a rehearsed sharing performance in a theatre setting.
Whether you want your writing to shock or provide a thought-provoking warning, the programme encourages you to harness the power of words and theatre, and inspire audiences to take positive action against climate disruption. Experience not necessary, enthusiasm a must!

The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: stART Up Community Arts Project 2020 #Be the Change - Seeking Young Writers and Spoken Word Artists
“Be part of the solution, not part of the pollution!” We are seeking Chinese (Cantonese speaking) young writers with an interest in spoken word to create a spoken word dance film about pollution and help make a difference in our world!
Working with local artists, you will conduct research and meet with environmental experts to collaboratively write spoken word pieces that will form the soundtrack to choreography devised by a group of young dancers. The pieces will be recorded in a professional recording studio and used as part of an original, social issue-based public service announcement dance film. No prior experience necessary.
*This workshop is conducted in Cantonese.
