F:A:C:E: Mentorship Programme 2018 - Lost & Found
師友會
在人生的路途上,我們總會碰到迷失的時候。文化藝術正正是給予我們出口和啟發的來源。透過師友會,你可以認識來自文化藝術界的導師、志同道合的同學,互相交流啟發。而那些看似不知所措的日子,可能會帶領你看到不同的風景,讓你的人生旅途從此變得不一樣。

We may feel lost at different stages of life. However, arts and culture is a good source of inspiration. The Mentorship Programme provides you a chance to meet seasoned practitioners in the arts and cultural industry. Students can develop friendship and gain insights from mentors through the exchange of ideas on cultural issues and life experiences.

Successful applicants will be divided into five groups. Each consists of one mentor and four to five mentees. At the end of the programme, mentees are required to present their learning experience in any art form with the theme “Lost & Found” under the guidance of their mentors. During the finale, all participants will be given the opportunity to appreciate and showcase what they have gained from the programme from this programme.

(21 Nov 2018)
一班熱心文化藝術的學生透過師友會,認識了來自各界的導師,與不同學系的同學,互相交流學習。他們刻意選擇一條原本不用走過的路,卻因此在生命的軌跡相遇,讓他們的生活、創作與現實互相交疊。他們將以影片、現場表演等方式來總結這段深刻的學習路程,或許這是一個結束,但也是另一個階段的開始。

A group of aspiring students have met each other and mentors from different walks of life through the F:A:C:E: Mentorship Programme. They will share their learning experience and inspiration from the programme in various formats like video and live performance at the finale. This may be the end of the programme, but also a beginning of another stage of life.
