Hong Kong Cultural Centre Free Cultural Programmes
and Arts Education Activities

[Submission of Proposals] [Selection of Programmes] [Enquiries]

To nurture the interest of the general public in the arts, the Hong Kong Cultural Centre of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department regularly organises free cultural programmes at its foyer or outdoor piazza. Monthly free foyer programmes including "Thursday Happy Hours" and "Saturday Arts Delights" cover a wide range of Chinese and western performing arts to cater to many different interests. The Department also invites local and overseas organists to give free pipe organ concerts and workshops on selected Saturday afternoons. Other regular arts education activities include the "Pipe Organ Education Series", the "Pipe Organ Education Concerts" as well as workshops and lecture demonstrations on stage technical arts.

Submission of Proposals      
The Department is open to proposals for free cultural programmes and arts education activities. Generally, a proposal should include the biography / background of the artist / group, reviews and recordings (audio / visual) of past performances, proposed programme details, proposed performance date, and the proposed fee with cost breakdown. For programmes by visiting artists, proposals should preferably be submitted 12-18 months in advance. For local programmes, proposals should preferably be submitted 6-12 months ahead. It would be difficult to consider proposals with less than 4 months' notice.

Selection of Programmes      

Proposals will be assessed according to the following criteria: artistic and educational merit of the programme, expertise and organisation ability of the artist / group, audience appeal, technical and financial viability, need for a balanced and mix art forms and interests of the target audience.

All proposals will be considered by the Programme Co-ordinating Meeting of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre.
