The Hong Kong Arts Festival is one of Asia’s major cultural events: in 2016, the festival featured 1,400 acclaimed artists from Hong Kong and around the world in 119 performances. Ranging from Shakespeare to Chinese opera, the eclectic lineup attracted 109,000 people.
Deutsche Bank is a proud sponsor of Hong Kong Arts Festival’s Young Friends Programme, which aims to involve local students, particularly those from less privileged backgrounds. The Young Friends Programme reached out to 19,000 students, giving them access to the arts which they may not often otherwise enjoy. The program allowed these students to not only attend performances, but participate in workshops, lectures, meet-and-greets and other educational activities.
