The Centre for Holistic Teaching and Learning at Hong Kong Baptist University, and the Hong Kong Teachers Drama Association co-organise the Hong Kong Creative Drama Festival on an annual basis to raise students’ awareness of current social/cultural issues and develop their creativity and teamwork skills through drama performance. Started in 2011, this large-scale drama event is the first of its kind in Hong Kong, promoting ‘Drama in Education’ at all education levels, from primary to tertiary.
Entries to the Festival are accepted in teams. The first challenge for each team is the preparation of a 4-min* drama on a given topic within the time limit of 15 minutes. The teams have to think out-of- the-box as they are required to make use of a set of provided props (e.g. chairs, table, stick, etc.) for their drama. This requirement truly challenges their creativity and imagination.
The category “Tertiary Institution/Open” allows tertiary students to team up with different participants, such as alumni or amateurs. The top three winning teams of this category will receive a cash prize of HKD 2,500, HKD 2,000 and HKD 1,500 respectively. Tertiary students could register the Festival for free.
