Welcome to the Department of Cultural and Creative Arts website! In keeping with the Department’s aim of becoming one premier regional arts education providers through a commitment to developing and sustaining a creative and dynamic interdisciplinary environment in Music and Visual Arts, in the process nurturing skilled, knowledgeable and caring graduates who can act as transformative, innovative and enterprising 21st century educators, the website has been designed to showcase the people, programmes and projects that collectively combine to make CCA such a vibrant and stimulating community in which to study and work.

A fundamental element of the Department’s educational philosophy is its strong desire to link the learning that goes on at a campus level with that which takes place within the wider community. As such, the many and varied initiatives that are currently serving to bring this about – from ‘Arts@School’ to the ‘Visual Arts Education and Community Development Project (VAECD)’ – are all highlighted within these pages. At the same time, the Department’s strong musical traditions and pursuit of artistic excellence are reflected in the numerous performing groups – from the Chorus to the Handbell and Jazz Ensembles – that thrive here at the Education University of Hong Kong.

We hope you enjoy browsing the site and getting to know the people, programmes and projects that together make up the Department of Cultural and Creative Arts.
