Two emerging Hong Kong artists will be selected soon for the Yale-China Arts Fellowship program, and they will embark on a residency and study program at Yale University next year.

Sponsored by Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in New York (HKETONY)  for the third year, the program and recruitment are administered by the Yale-China Association. The names of the HKETONY arts fellows will be announced soon this year.

In signing the memorandum of understanding for the sponsorship on September 21, HKETONY Director Steve Barclay said he hoped the program would inspire much of the fellows’ artistry and help enrich and benefit the artistic and cultural scene in Hong Kong.

“This is important, as the West Kowloon Cultural District is opening in phases," Mr. Barclay said. "We need to have the software as much as the hardware. I believe the arts fellows will bring back to our home city a rich repertoire of new ideas and creations.”

The HKETONY arts fellows from the past two years are visual artist Parry Ling, dancer Hao Yang, interdisciplinary artist Phoebe Hui and choreographer Ying Cai.
