University Artists Scheme                     

The University Artists Scheme was officially launched in 2008 and is the first programme of its kind to be held at HKU. The Scheme aims to bring artists of international caliber to our campus to enrich the lives of our students, staff, and the wider Hong Kong community through a series of activities held over a two-year period. Comments from past participants of all ages have shown how much they value these unique opportunities to exchange ideas and share experiences with award-winning artists.

Six highly respected artists from the disciplines of Film, Music, Literature and the Visual Arts have been appointed as University Artists for 2014 - 2016. The six artists are independent filmmaker Fruit Chan; Hong Kong film industry pioneer, John Sham; award-winning cellist and UNICEF Hong Kong Ambassador Trey Lee; acclaimed poet Henri Cole; and the directors of the groundbreaking art and technology partnership Artstation, Glenn Davidson and Anne Hayes.


The University Artists Scheme 2014-2016 is hosted by the Faculty of Arts and is generously supported by Dr Alice Lam.
