ISTA Performing Arts Academy 

'If the world were listening, what would you say?'


Students aged 12-18 from 10 different schools across Hong Kong came together for a week in July to explore important issues on a personal, community and global level. Adhering to all Centre of Health and Protection, CHP guidelines, we played, discovered, brainstormed, collaborated, connected and created original work.


The result was a process that was transformative and a culminating performance that moved the audience to tears. 

Thank you to all involved for making this experience one we will never forget!
