Second-round applications invited for Community-driven Projects under ICH Funding Scheme
     The Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) Office of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) launched the second round of applications for the Community-driven Projects under the ICH Funding Scheme today (January 8).

     The objective of the funding scheme is to support local residents and organisations with relevant experience to carry out ICH projects with a view to strengthening the safeguarding, research, promotion, education and transmission of local ICH items, as well as supporting relevant tasks conducted by local bearers and bearer organisations. By engaging the community's participation in safeguarding ICH, it is hoped that the public can enhance their awareness and understanding of ICH and heighten their respect for it.

     The scope of support covers projects related to the items in the Representative List and the Inventory of the ICH of Hong Kong. To attain the desired impacts of the Community-driven Projects, the proposed projects must be of a larger scale. As such, the funding amount applied for on each project shall not be less than $250,000.

     Application information is available at the ICH Office (address: Sam Tung Uk Museum, 2 Kwu Uk Lane, Tsuen Wan, New Territories) and the ICH Office website (www.lcsd.gov.hk/ICHO). The closing time for receiving applications is 6pm on March 2.

     A briefing session will be held at 11am on January 22 at the Lecture Hall of the Hong Kong Science Museum, 2 Science Museum Road, Tsim Sha Tsui East, Kowloon, to brief interested individuals and organisations on the content and application details of the funding scheme. Information about registration matters regarding the briefing session is available on the ICH Office website. For enquiries about the Community-driven Projects, please contact the ICH Office at 2267 1971.
