ART Power HK, the not-for-profit campaign and digital Platform that unites the Hong Kong arts community, has announced its extension to June 2021. The extension will allow for continued collaboration within the local arts community and committing ongoing support and amplification for the ongoing initiatives of Hong Kong arts organisations.
Launched three months ago on 16 March 2020, ART Power HK has acted as a catalyst for collaboration, facilitating connections between Partners and the wider community. The Platform brings together 139 arts organisations from across the community to support each other and drive positive energy and confidence for Hong Kong’s art scene. Their united strength has inspired and engaged local and international audiences with the diverse arts activities taking place in Hong Kong.
With COVID-19 bringing many uncertainties and challenges, the role of arts and culture as essential foundations for inclusive and accepting societies, and robust and creative economies, takes on heightened importance. In response to this ongoing impact, ART Power HK has extended its original four-month campaign and adapted the Platform to offer a much deeper response and longer commitment to maintain momentum for the arts. In addition to the ongoing ART Power HK Online Talks Series that addresses topics relevant to the Hong Kong creative community, ART Power HK is rolling out new content streams to further shine a spotlight on the arts and cultural infrastructure of Hong Kong as a united whole.
