The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: stART Up Community Arts Project 2020
Project Period: 11 | 2019 – 03 | 2020
The damaging effects of climate change on the environment are visible all around us. Many of the problems are caused by everyday human activities such as overuse and careless disposal of plastic food utensils, fast fashion, industrial waste discharge into our water systems and exhaust fumes from vehicles. But we can help combat these problems by enhancing awareness of the importance of environmental protection.
The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: stART Up Community Arts Project 2020 is designed to help tackle these issues through the arts. We are now seeking participants from primary and secondary schools to take part in a series of artist-led visual and performing arts workshops to learn about climate change and environmental protection, and create artworks that reflect on the participants’ observations and feelings in a meaningful way. All completed artworks will be showcased at a public exhibition in March 2019.
