Arts Capacity Development Funding Scheme (ACDFS)

Arts Capacity Development Funding Scheme (ACDFS)

The ACDFS is designed and implemented by the Advisory Committee on Arts Development for the purpose of strengthening the cultural software and building the capacity of the arts sector of Hong Kong. The ACDFS calls for application on an annual basis and provides funding support to innovative and impactful proposals that contribute to the objectives of:

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

The ACDFS provides funding support for large-scale and cross-year arts and cultural initiatives and activities, covering various art forms and practices such as performing arts, visual/media arts, multi-disciplinary arts, community arts, arts education, appreciation and promotion, arts administration and arts technology. The scheme also seeks to cultivate a supportive culture for the arts in the community and to foster a tripartite partnership involving the Government, arts groups and the private sector to promote arts and cultural development in Hong Kong.
