About the Event


Due to overwhelming response from our Fung Scholars who participated in the past 9 years’ Make a Difference activities organized by Make a Difference Institute, the Victor and William Fung Foundation is pleased to continue to support our Fung Scholars to next year’s MaD Festival to be held on 12 &13 Jan 2019. The Assembly will showcase the outcomes of the festival in Tai Kwun and bring together thousands of participants from Asia and beyond.


Six Winning Teams of Creative Industries Practitioners undertook immersive studies in cities/regions outside Hong Kong, explored synergies with like-minded partners and kickstarted their own innovative projects in Hong Kong with social, cultural and/or ecological impact. They will share their insights, learning and experience of the exchange and incubation projects at the pilot programmes and the Assembly of the MaD Festival.

The Assembly presents a wide variety of creative programmes, including keynote conversation, mini concert, open studio, exchange, ripple forum, cinema, free market, excursions and MORE …


The admission fee for a 2-day pass is HK$480 for a full-time student and $650 for an adult.
