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.

Writing Sessions:
03, 05, 10, 12 | 12 | 2019
6pm – 8:30pm

Recording Sessions:
17 | 12 | 2019
6pm – 8:30pm

Dance film will be rehearsed and recorded in January and February 2020.
