Grab the Chance to Learn Fundamental Knowledge
in Theatre and Entertainment Arts
In the School of Theatre and Entertainment Arts (TEA), students can learn how to apply design, technology and management skills and develop a career in the performing arts and entertainment industry.
For students who are interested in media technology such as to design stage environments and atmospheres with sound, lightings and installations; or in stage and even management and production; or in hands-on design such as set and costumes making, props making and scenery painting, here is a chance for them to learn fundamental knowledge in theatre and entertainment arts.
School of TEA will hold a Recruitment Day on 22 July (Friday) to recruit students who are taking DSE this year for Diploma in Theatre and Entertainment Arts Foundations programme. This Foundation Diploma is a one-year programme that not only teaches the basics in theatre and entertainment arts but also serve as a feeder to Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) in Theatre and Entertainment Arts.
If interviewees meet the admission requirements of the Bachelor’s degree programme and well perform in the interview, they may even be considered by the School to be admitted to Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) in Theatre and Entertainment Arts directly. Visit our website for more information!

The Social Impact of Performing Arts - Life Planning Forum
The Social Impact of Performing Arts – Life Planning Forum 2022 was successfully completed on 7 July. Our Deans and representatives of the six Schools of the Academy shared how performing arts education can foster social connection and inclusion with secondary school teachers, career masters, social organisations and art groups.
During the Forum, we also announced the launch of a new website for Principal’s Recommendation Scheme (PRS) to help secondary schools to identify and nominate talented students to pursue their study at the Academy. This website provides information and reference for various majors and specifications of the undergraduate programmes offered at the Academy, and the qualities and prior trainings recommended for studying different disciplines.

Creative Project Fund Connects the Community with
Me Amo Interdisciplinary Art Project
We believe that arts can break through boundaries and opens up windows for people to understand themselves and each other from a perspective. With the support of the JK & Ingrid Lee Foundation Creative Project Fund, Michelle Lo, Year 3 student of the School of Drama, organised the Me Amo interdisciplinary art project for people with different abilities to embrace their true self and adversity through the power of performing arts, drawing inspiration from the story of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo.
Participants with various speical needs were actively engaged in the journey to self-embrace. Their artwork, photography and devising theatre performance Encounter were showcased in the Me Amo Art Exhibition with positive feedback.
Since 2019, the Creative Project Fund has granted a total of HKD $180,000 to support 5 students to produce meaningful projects. These creative projects have proved to make arts more accessible and enjoyable, while provoking more reflection and discussion on human nature, arts and the community. We look forward to supporting more students to create projects to care for the community.
