F:A:C:E: (Fascinating Arts and Cultural Experiences) Mentorship Programme

The Programme aims at promoting your personal development, cultivating qualities of an educated individual, and fostering friendship between the experienced and trusted mentors and the young generation.

Through the exchange of ideas and appreciation of arts and culture, mentors from various fields support mentees by sharing their experiences and challenges on how to embrace various identities and roles while being a motivated and socially responsible individual.

Each mentor will lead three to four students and meet at least four times during the semester. The programme will be concluded with a dinner with students’ sharing and reflections through a co-curated and co-created piece of work.

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.
