Individuals, NGOs invited to run arts stalls at Hong Kong Park

*********************************************************



Starting tomorrow (September 5), individuals and subvented non-governmental organisations (NGOs) may submit applications to operate stalls at the Hong Kong Park Arts Corner, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department said.

The Arts Corner at Hong Kong Park was originally planned for a period of six months starting in April this year. It has been so well received by both stall operators and park-goers that the department has decided to grant it an immediate extension.

The new round of the Arts Corner will be held at the outdoor area near the Museum of Teaware in Hong Kong Park. It will be open to the public on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays from noon to 6pm from October 1 this year until June 30, 2004.

The department also operates an Arts Corner at Victoria Park and Arts Fun Fairs at Kowloon Park and Lai Chi Kok Park (Stage III).

The Hong Kong Park Arts Corner will consist of 10 arts service stalls offering painting, photography, calligraphy, portrait sketching and traditional Chinese arts and crafts.

Applications will be judged by the department's Arts Service Stalls Vetting Panel. If the number of qualified applicants exceeds the quota after vetting, stalls will be allocated by drawing lots.

Each successful applicant is required to pay a $100 registration fee and place a $1,000 deposit. The deposit will be forfeited if the stall is open less than 70% of the time, or if the agreement is terminated because the terms of the agreement are not met.

Application forms may be obtained at Hong Kong Park Management Office, 1/F, Rawlinson House, 19 Cotton Tree Drive, Central.

Completed forms together with any copies of proof of professional skills and samples of art work must be submitted to Hong Kong Park Management Office, Cotton Tree Drive, Central by 5pm, September 15.

For enquiries, please call 2521 5043.
