The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: stART Up Community Arts Project 2023 Playwriting Programme: Story Weavers “This is Our Neighbourhood” Stage Readings – Seeking Youth Performers

20/02-08/03/2023; 13/03/2023

Hong Kong is home to an eclectic mix of individuals and communities from all over the world, each with their own cultures and identities. For the most part these communities live happily side by side but occasionally cultural misunderstandings can lead to stereotyping or discrimination.

This year, as part of our Story Weavers playwriting programme, our team of young playwrights have explored the theme of cultural symbolism and written powerful scripts inspired by the community stories of their home districts.

We are now seeking youth actors to help stage these scripts for our final stage reading performances.

Participants must attend all rehearsals and the showcase.
