Arts Accessibility Workshops - Be inspired by power of art beyond different abilities
The Academy is devoted to advocate arts inclusion and promote the building of a caring society. Our effort has been recognised by the award of Caring Organisation for 15 years. Since 2019, the Academy signed a memorandum with Arts with the Disabled Association Hong Kong (ADAHK) to engage Arts Accessibility (AA) support in our performances and productions such as audio description, theatrical interpretation, accessible captions, pre-show touch hour, etc.; to provide AA trainings for staff, students and the general public; to support the Academy to build a barrier-free campus; and to explore opportunities for promoting art inclusion. In January 2022, the collaboration between the Academy and ADAHK has been renewed for another three years to strengthen the students’ understanding in arts inclusion and therefore enriching their lives in performing arts.
We believe in "Arts are for Everyone."
Artists with Disability Development Fund
In furtherance of the Academy’s collaboration with ADAHK to encourage artistic development for people with disabilities, the Academy supported ADAHK to promote the meaningful Artists with Disability Development Fund to students of the Academy. The fund aims at financing and assisting aspiring young people with disabilities for local or overseas arts studies or specific development path in the arts. Community members are also welcome to apply.
