Core Services Provide non-competitive and free of charge art education to young people
Achievements / Pioneer Projects Achievements:
Lindsey McAlister founded YAF when she was working as an artist in residence in Hong Kong schools, because she discovered first hand that many young people in Hong Kong did not have the opportunity to access the arts. A recent report by UNESCO and the Hong Kong Institute of Contemporary Cultures – Educating for Creativity: bringing the arts and culture into Asian education – found that Hong Kong needed to integrate the arts into the education system and that integration of the arts has the potential to : contribute to learners’ intellectual and social development, improving the quality of education and increase creativity and contribution to the safeguarding of cultural diversity.
