The 14th Arts Ambassadors-in-School Scheme Call for Nomination Now! (Deadline extended to 28 January, 2022)
1 Nov


Since its launch in 2008, the Arts Ambassadors-in-School Scheme (AAiSS) has amassed around 13,000 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’.


Youth Arts Week, a new initiative in the past edition, has received overwhelming response. Themed on “Arts x Tech”, AAiSS in its 14th edition will continue to organise a wide variety of exciting online and offline arts activities for arts ambassadors.


The nomination process has gone online. Each school can nominate two arts ambassadors via the online system.
