F:A:C:E: Choice and Sharing

This programme provides recommended arts and cultural programmes to students throughout the year. To widen students’ horizons in arts and culture, ticket subsidies will be offered to full-time HKU students to encourage appreciation of different art forms of performances or films.

Students may freely choose one of the designated programmes and register for the sharing session. Students will be eligible for ticket subsidy upon attendance of both the performance and the sharing session. Each HKU full-time student may apply for the ticket subsidy once in each semester.
