Hong Kong Arts Development Council

Established in 1995, the Hong Kong Arts Development Council (ADC) is a statutory body set up by the Government to plan, promote and support the broad development of the arts including literary arts, performing arts, visual arts as well as film and media arts in Hong Kong. Its major roles include grant allocation, policy and planning, advocacy, promotion and development, and programme planning. Aiming to foster a thriving arts environment and enhancing the quality of life of the public, the ADC is also committed to facilitating community-wide participation in the arts and arts education, encouraging arts criticism and raising the standard of arts administration.

While maintaining close ties with the arts and cultural community, the ADC also works closely with a diverse group of public and private partners – the Commerce and Economic Development Bureau, the Development Bureau, the Home Affairs Bureau, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department and the Education Bureau, the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority, Mainland authorities, overseas bodies and local arts groups. It hopes to reach a strong social consensus on arts development in Hong Kong, a focal point where ideas, practices and influence converge to distinguish the city as a cultural metropolis in Asia where a thriving arts community with top-notch talents takes root.

Through a variety of development strategies, the ADC aims to achieve the following goals: -

  • Making use of research findings to exert influence on cultural policy-making
  • Providing greater support to the arts community for artistic pursuits
  • Establishing platforms to assist arts groups in reaching out
  • Encouraging public participation and expanding audience base; promoting arts education and popularising the arts
  • Drawing arts veterans and cultivating new talents to raise professional standards of practice
  • Exploring community resources and fostering partnerships to promote arts development
  • Strengthening cultural exchanges with Mainland and overseas counterparts

Board of Trustees of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Music and Dance Fund

The Hong Kong Jockey Club Music and Dance Fund (the Fund) was set up in 1980 with a donation of $10 million from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust (the Trust) for the promotion and development of music and dance. It is a non-statutory trust fund administered by a Board of Trustees. In 1994, a further capital injection of $22 million was provided by the Trust to meet the increasing demand for support. In 2014, the total donation was increased to $49 million upon the Trust’s approval of additional funding support of around $17 million for the Fund to implement a six-year pilot project which includes the launching of a local scholarship scheme and setting up of an alumni association for the scholars of the Fund.

Scholarships are awarded to assist candidates of outstanding calibre to pursue post-graduate studies in music or dance at degree-awarding tertiary institutions in Hong Kong or pursue professional training in music or dance at world-renowned institutions or to undertake less formal studies, projects or creative work outside Hong Kong.
