People with Disabilities
ADAHK set up the first-ever arts accessibility centre in Hong Kong to establish a barrier-free arts environment and enhance the quality of lives for different people.
What They Do
The Arts with the Disabled Association Hong Kong promotes equal opportunities for people with disabilities to have access to and excel in the arts; and advocates an inclusive society through the arts.
In 2013, Arts with the Disabled Association Hong Kong have provided arts training to nearly 500 people with disabilities, engaged with over 20,000 teachers and students through public education activities in Hong Kong.
The Arts with the Disabled Association Hong Kong (ADAHK) promotes equal opportunities for people with disabilities to have access to and excel in the arts; and advocates an inclusive society through the arts.
Established in 1986, ADAHK is the only organisation dedicated to the art development of people with disabilities in Hong Kong. With the vision “Arts are for Everyone”, ADAHK works both in the rehabilitation field and the arts field, together with different stakeholders. ADAHK has organised numerous activities to popularise arts among people with disabilities and promote excellence in the works of artists with disabilities in Hong Kong. We also work with the general public to promote integration and inclusion in society through the arts.
Funded by the Lee Hysan Foundation and the Jean C K Ho Family Foundation, the three-year Ignition Scheme is designed to promote arts among young people with disabilities. ADAHK partnered with four local special schools, including the Ebenezer School, Hong Kong Red Cross John F. Kennedy Centre, Sam Shui Natives Association Lau Pun Cheung School and R.C.H.H. Island West Hong Chi Morninghope School to unleash the artistic potential in young people with disabilities during their formative years.
