Arts with the Disabled Association Hong Kong (ADAHK) (with matching fund from Hong Kong Arts Development Council)
Jan 2020 – July 2021
40 – 50 students
The Artist-in-Residence from Ignition Scheme 1.0 (2016-2019) provided in-depth training, with tailor-made syllabi to 40-50 students from four schools. Led by professional artists, the programme developed the students’ technical skills in different art forms which cultivated their interest in art. It also helped students build up life skills and a positive attitude towards life.
Based on the experience in Ignition Scheme 1.0, the Ignition Scheme 2.0 provides students with more in-depth and extensive nurturing opportunities and paves the way for a possible career in the arts.
Basic Arts Training: to foster the artistic potential of new students through in-depth training at a young age.
Advanced Arts Development Training: to deepen and consolidate the artistic skills of the three special schools that participated in the Ignition Scheme1.0.
Showcase in the Community: a platform for students to share and showcase the fruits of their labour and for public education.
