The 13th Arts Ambassadors-in-School Scheme Call for Nomination Now!
29 Oct


Since its launch in 2008, the Arts Ambassadors-in-School Scheme (AAiSS) has amassed more than 12,000 ambassadors from primary, secondary and special schools. A variety of arts activities will be 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".


"Arts Go Live! – Online Interactive Platform", a new initiative in last edition, received an overwhelming response. Entering its 13th edition, AAiSS will introduce both online and offline activities, such as a brand-new project "Video Creation & Exchange Programme" to stimulate creativity and bring positive impact among arts ambassadors and their peers.


This year, the nomination process has gone online. Each school can nominate two arts ambassadors via our online system.
