International Arts Carnival
The annual summer festival International Arts Carnival is a tailor-made arts festival for children and their families. Featuring various groups of outstanding overseas and local artists each year, the Carnival presents fun-filled online and stage programmes with unlimited intelligence, which covers musical, drama, puppetry, circus, music and multimedia theatre to widen the audience’s artistic vision and induce children’s infinite imagination wherever they are in or out of the theatres. The Carnival lines up a wide variety of extension activities including workshops, talks and exhibitions. It also includes parent-child activities organised by LCSD-managed museums and libraries over summer.
New Vision Arts Festival
First founded in 2002, the biennial New Vision Arts Festival (NVAF) has become an annual event starting from its 10th edition. The NVAF strives to push boundaries across different cultures, disciplines and regions, introducing to Hong Kong audiences pioneering, trendsetting and groundbreaking performing arts from around the world. Apart from broadening viewers’ horizons, the NVAF sets out to open people’s minds as well to new possibilities in everyday life. It is also committed to fostering exchange and collaboration between local and overseas artists, nurturing new talents, commissioning new works, and bringing local productions onto the global stage.
