Community Projects

The network with community around us is expanding, as we orchestrate a wide range of efforts from the valuable partnerships forged with different collaborators.  Through the community engagement activities we take part in, we aim to increase the positive impact of performing arts to a wider community.

Creative Project Fund

The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts is committed to enhancing an inclusive society and providing equal opportunities for everyone to enjoy performing arts.  The Creative Project Fund is offered to HKAPA students to develop creative projects which are able to fulfill the mission of “Arts for Everyone” and promote inclusiveness through the arts to build a caring society.  Students enrolled in the Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree programmes in the Academy are welcome to submit their proposals, with HK$30,000 to $60,000 granted for each selected project.

Arts Accessibility Workshops

The Academy believes in Arts for all and therefore we actively promote arts inclusion to our students so that they will have early exposure to creative engagement with the disabled, and can continue to advocate for arts inclusion in future.  With the renewal of the MoU with Arts with the Disabled Association Hong Kong (ADAHK) in January 2022, four Arts Accessibility (AA) workshops were held in person just before the outbreak of pandemic - two tailored for Dance students, one for Drama students, and one for general audience which was also held online. Four editions of the workshops have been held during 2019-2021.
