Arts Capacity Development Funding Scheme (ACDFS)

With the objective of strengthening the cultural software and building the capacity of the arts sector of Hong Kong, ACDFS provides funding support for innovative and impactful proposals that contribute to the objectives of:

  • capacity development of arts practitioners, arts groups, art forms and/or arts sector;
  • programme/contents development;
  • audience building; and
  • arts education

ACDFS aims to fill the gaps between various public funding schemes and sources for the arts and to support worthwhile initiatives of a larger scale and/or a longer time frame from arts practitioners as well as small and medium arts groups which contribute to the cultural and arts development in the community. ACDFS seeks to promote various art forms including, but not limited to, performing arts, visual arts and multi-disciplinary art forms. ACDFS also seeks to cultivate a supportive culture for the arts in the community and to foster a tripartite partnership among the Government, arts groups and the private sector to promote arts and cultural development in Hong Kong.
