F:A:C:E: Mentorship Programme 師友會 2016
This programme connects aspiring students to the seasoned practitioners in the arts and cultural industry and with one another. Through the exchange of ideas on a wide range of cultural texts, real world experiences, and most importantly, co-creation of artworks, friendship between mentors and mentees will be fostered while students’ creativity and artistic expression will be enhanced.
Successful applicants are divided into 10 groups. Each consists of one mentor and four mentees. At the end of the programme, mentees are required to present their learning experience in any art forms under the guidance of mentors. All participants will have a chance to appreciate and showcase what they have gained from the programme on this finale.
Each group can receive a maximum production subsidy of HK$1,000 on a reimbursement basis.
