The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts has always endeavored to promote performing arts in the community by holding outreach activities of different kinds. Through engaging in performing arts, we believe that personal growth can be achieved and the local cultural life be enriched and enhanced.
In 2011, the first Performing Arts Marathon @Sham Shui Po project organized by the Performing Arts Education Centre from the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (“the Academy”) was held successfully under the auspices of Bloomberg and support of the Education Bureau, Sham Shui Po District Council, Sham Shui Po District Office of the Home Affairs Department, Leisure and Cultural Services Department, Social Welfare Department, Sham Shui Po School Liaison Committee and JCCAC. Acknowledged by the UNESCO for Research in Local Cultures and Creativity in Education as a “Star Projects/Programs(SPP)” and receiving the 2012 Hong Kong Development Silver Award for Arts Education (Non-School Division) by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council, this project is highly regarded by schools and community.
In 2013, the Centre once again secures sponsorship from Bloomberg to hold the second Performing Arts Marathon @ Sham Shui Po, aiming to bring arts to the neighborhood and highlight that arts education be centred on daily life.
