" Arts Buddies 2016" Launching Ceremony
The Education Bureau, the Hong Kong Arts Development Council, the Institute of Creativity of Hong Kong Baptist University, Office of the Arts Administrator of Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Heritage Museum recently joined forces to organise and implement the 4th Arts Buddies scheme. Pursuing the same objectives as in previous years, the new Arts Buddies programme aims to cultivate a positive attitude to serving the community through art activities. Divided into a number of small groups, led by Arts Mentors from the Hong Kong Baptist University and the Chinese University of Hong Kong, the Arts Ambassadors, who come from different secondary schools, will participate in a series of seminars, workshops and art exhibitions to enrich their appreciation of art and their skills in promoting art education.
Officiating guests take a photo as a memento.
Guests and participants hold up placards for a group photo to kick off the Arts Buddies project.
The new Arts Ambassadors enjoy listening to the museum docent's introduction to the exhibits.
