Arts, culture sector to get more aid

June 19, 2020

The Government will disburse an additional subsidy from the Arts & Culture Sector Subsidy Scheme under the Anti-epidemic Fund to help small and medium-sized arts groups stage live performances and support their operations after the reopening of performance venues.


Major facilities of the Leisure & Cultural Services Department’s performance venues, such as concert halls, theatres, auditoriums, cultural activity halls and arenas reopened for performances with live audiences today.


The Home Affairs Bureau announced an additional subsidy of $80,000 from the $150 million scheme will be disbursed to 44 Arts Development Council-funded arts groups, 14 venue partners under the LCSD and 34 Arts Capacity Development Funding Scheme grantees.


After the completion of this disbursement, the Government will have handed out about $110 million from the Arts & Culture Sector Subsidy Scheme.
