  • About ARTS POWER

    ARTS POWER is a social enterprise offering professional Expressive Arts Therapy programs, which empower participants and improve their holistic wellbeing.

     

    We strive to enable more equal access to arts and emotional support. We run regular therapy programs to subsidize charity Expressive Arts Therapy programs for the disadvantaged, such as underprivileged women.

     

    With every four regular sessions we serve, we will provide a subsidized session for the underprivileged. When you join our programs, you are not only improving your own wellbeing, but also helping people in need.

  • We Believe...

    Arts is for all, regardless of age, gender and social status.

    Arts Can Heal

    According to the latest UN World Happiness Report, Hong Kong ranked 76th in terms of Happiness, even lower than the war-torn country Libya. Hong Kong people have a great need for improving wellbeing and happiness.

     

    Research has proven the healing effect of arts therapies. The creative process of arts empowers people to handle emotional issues, anxiety and stress, and brings happiness.

    Equal Opportunity

    1 in 5 people in Hong Kong lives in poverty. These financially deprived also deserve mental support through means like arts therapies.

     

    ARTS POWER partners with NGOs and hires Registered Expressive Arts Therapists to conduct programs. So the underprivileged can also benefit from the healing power of arts.

    Arts for Social Inclusion

    Arts is for all, regardless of age, gender and socio-economic status. In future, we aim to have arts festivals where people from different income groups can enjoy arts together.
