Since its launch in 2008, the Arts Ambassadors-in-School Scheme (AAiSS) has amassed around 16,000 ambassadors from primary, secondary and special schools. A variety of arts activities is organised for arts ambassadors to demonstrate their talents and explore the possibility of arts. AAiSS encourages arts ambassadors to share the joy of artistic creation with their peers in order to live out the cooperative spirit of ‘Live in Art, Thrive in Sharing’.


With the theme of “Chinese Traditional Culture x Modern Arts”, AAiSS in its 16th edition will continue to organise an array of fabulous arts activities for arts ambassadors to explore and learn about traditional Chinese culture, bridging the past and present while fostering creativity.


To join the scheme, each school can nominate two arts ambassadors via the online system.
