香港青年藝術協會簡介

宗旨

香港青年藝術協會是一個非牟利的慈善機構,旨在為5至25歲的青少年提供高質素、非競爭性及費用全免的藝術活動。於1993年由麥蓮茜創辦,藉著多元化和富啟發性的計劃,讓不同文化、背景及才能的年青人發揮創意。同時,本會致力服務弱勢及有特殊需要的年青人。每年超過八十萬人次參加各項節目或觀賞表演和展覽。        

親身體驗 誘發藝術潛能

我們深信親身體驗是學習的最有效方法,透過多元化及高質素的藝術活動,提高青少年的創作力、自我表達能力和自信心。同時提高解決問題的能力、增強溝通技巧、領導能力及培養群體合作精神。

Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation (YAF) is a charity that provides high quality, non-competitive arts experiences for all young people aged 5 to 25. 

Established in 1993 by Lindsey McAlister, OBE, YAF organises inclusive and inspirational projects that reach out to young people of all cultures, backgrounds, languages and abilities, and actively creates opportunities for disadvantaged and underprivileged young people. Each year we reach over 800,000 young people through our projects, exhibitions and performances.        

YAF's Philosophy

"... What I hear I forget, what I see I remember, what I do I understand." (Confucius) We believe that quality art experiences can enrich the learning process by offering new ways of channelling energy and looking at the world. Amongst the multitude of crucial benefits that arts opportunities create are increased creativity, self-expression & self-esteem plus problem solving, communication, leadership and teambuilding skills.
