The Sai Kung Hoi Arts Festival 2023 will be held from 15 November 2023 to 14 January 2024. Aside from Sai Kung Pier, Yim Tin Tsai and Sharp Island, we are extending the joyful art journey to Kau Sai Chau and High Island this year. With the curatorial direction of “Joy Again, Stories”, this year’s event will be having isles as the container of dialogues to bridge the present and future of the city’s valuable resources, retelling the stories of our isles, humanity, ecology and natural beauty.
The “Sai Kung Hoi Arts Festival Ambassadors Programme” was started last year and we recruited a group of energetic adults, interested in arts/ isles/ nature, who joined our team to support the smooth running of the Festival.
We are now recruiting a new batch of Ambassadors to be the connectors between the visitors and us to support the overall operation of the Festival and interact with the visitors. Together we record and frame different angles for residents, visitors and tourists to observe and discover stories of the isles. From isles to people, all joy again, stories.
The major working period of the Ambassador Programme lies in the Festival period. Workshops and site visits will be held before the Festival period for Ambassadors to fully understand their duties and responsibilities, and the relationship between this year’s curatorial direction “Joy Again, Stories” and the artworks. Tentative arrangement is as follows:
Two pre-Festival workshops and site visits will be held for the Ambassadors to learn more about isles and artworks. This is also a chance for their mutual exchange and communication.
Workshops and Site Visits
1st session // Online programme introduction:
3 October 2023 (Tuesday) 19:30-21:00 (mandatory for all participants)
2nd session // Site visit:

During the 2-month Festival period, Ambassadors will work with us on the isles to support the smooth operation of the Festival, interact with visitors and introduce the artworks, history and culture of the isles.
