Public Forum: Arts education with a difference: how to highlight the social and educational value of the arts ?
Most arts education programmes in town emphasize skill-based training and focus on students’ achievement in graded examinations. However, the arts education programmes founded by our two speakers highlight on the social and education value of the arts. The Music Children Foundation offers free music lessons to underprivileged children in Sham Shui Po and aims to nurture their confidence, sense of responsibility and team spirit. Rooftop Institute invites Asian and local artists to conduct artistic research and discussions on contemporary social and cultural issues. It strives to broaden the international perspective of local youngsters through their engagement with Asian artists.
The speakers will share with us the rationale behind their vision, the challenges they face and the impact they are making, as well as how they equip themselves to realize their dreams.
