Organisation: Make a Difference Institute (MADI)


MaD Festival 2018/19 is a multifaceted programme to promote progressive development of the creative ecology in Hong Kong and Asia. One component is the Exchange+Incubation for Creative Industries Practitioners (the Programme) which supports socially conscious and forward-looking creative industries practitioners to undertake immersive studies in cities/regions outside Hong Kong, explore synergies with like-minded partners and kickstart their own innovative projects in Hong Kong with social, cultural and/or ecological impact. They will also share their insights, learning and experience of the exchange and incubation projects at the Community Outreach and International Assembly of the MaD Festival. The Make a Difference Institute (MADI) now invites proposals for exchange and incubation projects from eligible local creative industries practitioners or groups.
