Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation (YAF) is a charity that provides access to high quality, non-competitive free-of-charge arts experiences for all young people aged 5 to 25.


Established in 1993 by Lindsey McAlister OBE, JP, YAF organises inclusive and inspirational projects that reach out to youngsters of all cultures, backgrounds, languages and abilities, and actively creates opportunities for those who are disadvantaged and underprivileged.

YAF Philosophy

"... What I hear I forget, what I see I remember, what I do I understand." (Confucius)
YAF believes that quality art experiences can enrich the learning process by offering new ways of channelling energy and looking at the world. Amongst the multitude of crucial benefits that arts opportunities create are increased creativity, self-expression and self-esteem, plus problem solving, communication, leadership and teambuilding skills.
