     Introduced by the Government in 2011, the ACDFS is administered on the advice of the Advisory Committee on Arts Development. Members of the Committee take part in the assessment of applications together with Expert Advisers. The funding scheme aims to provide funding support for innovative and impactful proposals that contribute to the objectives of capacity development, programme/content development, audience building and arts education. It also seeks to provide an avenue of support for large-scale and cross-year arts and cultural initiatives/activities so as to enhance capacity development for promising arts groups and arts practitioners as well as to encourage the community and the private sector to support and sponsor the arts. Since the 10th round of ACDFS, a new category "Arts Technology" has been introduced with a view to encouraging the arts sector to manifest its artistic vision and aspirations through the use of technology in a creative manner. Apart from the applications submitted under the category of "Arts Technology", it is encouraging to see that a great number of applications under other categories have integrated technology into artistic creation by varying degrees.
