12 arts projects get national funding

Secretary for Culture, Sports & Tourism Kevin Yeung extended congratulations to 12 Hong Kong arts projects which were selected and awarded by the China National Arts Fund 2024, marking a new record for the city.


He also thanked the country for the support and recognition to Hong Kong’s arts and culture sector.


The selected projects this year cover areas such as small-scale productions, visual arts creations, cultural exchange, training of arts talent and youth in arts creation. This is the third time that Hong Kong projects have been selected since the China National Arts Fund opened up for projects from Hong Kong and Macau in 2022.


Mr Yeung said: “A wide variety of projects have been selected this year, including traditional Cantonese Opera as well as ballet production, which manifest Hong Kong’s unique characteristic as a melting pot of East and West cultures. We are delighted to see that projects submitted by the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts have been selected for two consecutive years.


“The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government will continue to capitalise on and consolidate Hong Kong’s role as an East-meets-West centre for international cultural exchange, help extend the reach of Chinese culture and tell the good story of China.”
