The third edition of Jockey Club New Arts Power (JCNAP 2019) is back in town till January 2020, featuring seven performing arts programmes, two visual arts programmes, and over 150 community and educational events. Hosted by Hong Kong Arts Development Council and The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, the marathon event this year explores the theme of “Arts Around Us” – a theme that allows local artists to push beyond the boundaries of traditional art spaces and reach even closer to the community through their art.
Notable among this year’s participating artists are choreographer and dancer Lai Tak Wai and Daniel Yeung, curators André Chan and Jing Chin yin Chong, the creative trio called Thunderstorm, local saxophone ensemble La Sax and physical drama group Théâtre de la Feuille.
Speaking to the media at the opening ceremony, HKADC’s Chairman Dr Wilfred Wong said: “Following successful first and second editions, JCNAP is now well established as a major home-grown arts festival. It provides Hong Kong artists a much-needed platform for creativity and an opportunity to connect with the community, schools and the general public.”
