The Leisure and Cultural Services Department is inviting applications for the "2009-10 Community Cultural Ambassador Scheme".
The scheme aims to bring the arts into the community by joining with local performing artists and arts groups to organise outreach arts activities throughout Hong Kong for the public or particular community groups. Closing date for applications is on May 20 (Wednesday).
Applicants should be registered local non-profit-making performing arts groups or ensembles of artists which, in the past three years, have been active in the promotion of a specific art form in Hong Kong, with proven experience and artistic merit in public performances. Applicants can submit proposals for audience building/arts educational activities that are specifically designed for particular community groups or which will be conducted in specific districts, or for audience building/arts educational activities that are designed for the general public.
Only one proposal should be submitted for each type of activity and only one of the proposals submitted by the same applicant will be considered by the department each year. The proposal should cover one or more performing art forms including Xiqu/operatic singing, dance, music, theatrical arts (including drama, mime, magic and puppetry) and multi-arts. Proposed projects may include one or a combination of the following types of activities: performances, workshops, lectures, demonstrations and exhibitions.
