The Hong Kong Arts Development Council (HKADC), in support of the Education Bureau (EDB), has launched the Arts Ambassador Scheme in schools since 2009 for awarding students who show talents and passion in the arts, as well as enthusiasm in sharing their arts experience in their respective schools. For empowering the Arts Ambassadors’ (AA) knowledge of and skills in arts appreciation, skills in sharing their arts experiences with their school peers and the wider public in the community, a project entitled Arts Buddies (藝術同行) was launched in 2011.
In the project, a series of art learning programmes such as a day camp with seminars and workshops on the theories and practice of art appreciation, on-site workshops on art appreciation and curating of art exhibition will be offered to the participants. Participants will also have the opportunities to visit art exhibitions and artist studios in groups, and guide their peers to visit other art exhibitions for enhancing their leadership and experience of community service.
