Message from the Department Head

Welcome to the Department of Cultural and Creative Arts (CCA). CCA is dedicated to becoming a premier arts education provider, and seeks to create an impact not only in Hong Kong and the Asia-Pacific region, but also globally. 

CCA is a vibrant and inspiring place to strive for academic and artistic excellence in Music and the Visual Arts. Offering a wide spectrum of programmes, CCA is committed to nurturing skilled, knowledgeable and caring graduates who can take up transformative roles as innovative educators, enterprising community-based arts practitioners, creative thinkers, and cultural leaders in the 21st Century. Our colleagues, whose research interests and achievements span the fine arts, art history, cultural studies, improvisation, performance, creativity, education policy, pedagogy and teacher development, are energetic and passionate about working on innovative and cutting-edge projects.  

The Department has a strong desire to link with the local, regional and international community. We take pride in our Music Skills Enhancement Scheme (MUSES), Community Engagement & Outreach Academy of Creative Arts (CEO), and Visual Arts Education and Community Development Project (VAECD) initiatives. At the same time, we are privileged to host a number of performing groups, including Chorus, Jazz, Handbell and Electronic Ensembles, an Orchestra and a Symphonic Band. In addition, we constantly seek to integrate the creative arts with technology, such as through the establishment of the Music Innovation and Design Lab (musid.lab), 3-D, and laser-cut facilities, in the process enabling us to investigate and embrace new possibilities. 

You are welcome to explore our website to know more about our people, programmes, research areas and activities. Please join us and help make a difference together.
