Hong Kong Park's second phase Arts Corner to open for application
The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) is inviting interested individuals or subvented non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to apply for operating second phase stalls of the "Arts Corner" at the open space near to the Museum of Teaware in Hong Kong Park from tomorrow (March 13).
An LCSD spokesman said today (March 12), "The first phase of the 'Arts Corner' at Hong Kong Park, which started in October last year, will come to an end on March 31, 2003.
"As the 'Arts Corner' is well received by both the park-goers and stall operators, the Department decides to launch the second phase immediately afterwards, starting from April to September 30, 2003.
"The stalls will be opened from 12 noon to 6 pm on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays."
He added that the Corner would house a total of ten stalls, offering services including painting, photography, calligraphy, portrait sketching or Chinese traditional arts craft.
Besides the "Arts Corner" at Hong Kong Park, the LCSD has also set up another Corner at Victoria Park, two "Arts Fun Fairs" at Kowloon Park and Lai Chi Kok Park (Stage III) and one "Arts and Crafts Square" at Tsuen Wan Park.
Any interested individuals or subvented NGOs are welcomed to apply for operating these stalls from tomorrow (March 13).
Applications will be considered by the Arts Service Stalls Vetting Panel of the LCSD in accordance with the quality and/or variety of services provided. If qualified applicants exceed the quota after vetting, results will be determined by drawing lots. Each successful applicant is required to pay $100 registration fee.
Application forms can be obtained at Hong Kong Park Management Office, 1/F., Rawlinson House, 19 Cotton Tree Drive, Central, Hong Kong.
All completed forms should be submitted together with copies of the proof of their professional knowledge in respective fields (if any) and samples of their past arts works to Hong Kong Park Management Office, Cotton Tree Drive, Central, Hong Kong on or before 5 pm of March 21.
