The 14th Hong Kong Arts Development Awards Award for Arts Education (Non-School Division)
Dr Chow Yiu-fai, Associate Professor of the Department of Humanities and Creative Writing
Dr Chow Yiu-fai received the award for his project “Every Life is a Song Handisongs: Tertiary Students’ Musical Tribute to Our City’s Craftspersons”. It was produced by Every Life is a Song, a social enterprise he established jointly with local singer-songwriter Ms Vicky Fung. The project, which derived from their belief that “every person deserves to have a song of their own”, recruited 30 tertiary students from across different disciplines to create 10 pieces of music and videos that focused specifically on craftspersons.
