Friends sponsor a Summer Art Cadets programme for children from underprivileged backgrounds.
“Summer Art Cadets 2018 – Art Switch”
Already in its eleventh year, we are partnering with the Children’s Cancer Foundation to present a programme titled “Art Switch”. We hope to help young cancer survivors reconnect with the community through arts and crafts. The workshops will take place from mid-July to late August. A graduation ceremony will be held on Sunday, August 26 at the Museum of History. All are welcome to join and to share this happy occasion with the children!
|In 2010, the Friends launched The Sound of Art— a successful music series at the Hong Kong Museum of Art.Held on the first Sunday of every month in the Museum foyer, the concert series features local musicians performing classical works by Chinese and Western composers.|
|The concerts are free and open to the public and feature vocal as well as instrumental ensemble performances.|
|The Hong Kong Museum of Art is closed for major renovation and expansion from August 2015. During the upcoming three years, concerts will be held in the Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Centre, Kowloon Park.|
Friends also organize numerous programmes and events for students, including the sponsorship of free bus transportation for schools and other community groups to attend exhibitions at the Museum.
