About

The Arts with the Disabled Association Hong Kong (ADAHK) promotes equal opportunities for people with disabilities to have access to and excel in the arts; and advocates an inclusive society through the arts.

Established in 1986, ADAHK is the only organisation dedicated to the art development of people with disabilities in Hong Kong. With the vision “Arts are for Everyone”, ADAHK works both in the rehabilitation field and the arts field, together with different stakeholders. ADAHK has organised numerous activities to popularise arts among people with disabilities and promote excellence in the works of artists with disabilities in Hong Kong. We also work with the general public to promote integration and inclusion in society through the arts.
