From June to October, Art Macao features a series of artistic events across the city, including a number of international art exhibitions, performances, international youth festivals and visual arts exhibitions of higher- education institutions, which form an arts festival of unprecedented scale and which will surely provide a new artistic and cultural experience to residents and tourists alike.
Macau’s biggest, grandest arts-themed festival is getting under way. Scheduled to launch on June 6, Art Macao brings together the city’s leading cultural institutions and members of its tourism industry to showcase world-class exhibitions and performances across the Special Administrative Region.
Under the patronage of the Secretariat for Social Affairs and Culture, Art Macao is being organized jointly by the Cultural Affairs Bureau and the Macao Government Tourism Office. Together with the support of the Education and Youth Affairs Bureau and the Higher Education Bureau, the festival features a range of stunning art collections, mesmerizing concerts and highly acclaimed theatrical productions. These include: an International Art Exhibition, organized in collaboration with hotels, integrated resorts, and foreign consulates; highlights of the concert season by the Macao Orchestra and the Macao Chinese Orchestra; signature programmes of the Macao Cultural Centre; an International Youth Dance Festival, International Youth Music Festival, and International Youth Drama Festival; a series of “Growing with the SAR” activities to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the establishment of the Macao Special Administrative Region; and a number of visual arts exhibitions hosted by several of Macau’s higher-education institutions.
