About the University Artists Scheme:
The UAS, with its focus on artists of international calibre, is the first of its kind at the University of Hong Kong. We bring world-renowned artists to the campus to enrich the lives of our students. The artists will pursue projects and activities in the form of lectures, workshops, screenings, exhibitions, and performances. They will have an opportunity to work closely with colleagues, practitioners, and students in the University and in the general community.
The University Artists Scheme is hosted by the Faculty of Arts and supported by Wah Ching Fund
