Please note this festival is for schools in the Yew Chung Education Foundation only.

Artistic information

Participating schools and venues
Students will gather in three city hubs, namely Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai. One YCIS/YWIES school in each city will act as host for other YCIS/YWIES in the same city to travel to. YCIS/YWIES schools from other cities such as Chongqing, Qingdao, Yantai, Guangzhou and Tongxiang will also be invited to attend and will either travel to one of our hub cities or take part virtually.

Age ranges
The festival will be aimed at upper primary school and middle school students (young people aged 9-15) YCIS and YWIES schools in Hong Kong and China.

The hybrid model
Young people will work in the city ‘clusters’ over the course of the festival and at various stages will then connect virtually with young people in other cities to:
Learn alongside each other through workshops.
Share performance work created.
