When a dream is endowed with passion and perseverance,

 filled with content, powered by courage and given the right direction,

 it soars freely and high up in the sky.

 Act Plus has been committed to promoting whole-person development through creative arts education and serving young people from humble families or with non-mainstream pursuits. With the generous support by the Swire Trust in the past 3 years, the Ani Ed-Young Animator Development Project was launched and successfully completed with impact in young lives.  The project aimed to provide youngsters, priority to those from humble backgrounds, with opportunities to sharpen their strengths in digital animation and creativity, put their knowledge into practice and exposure to employability. In addition to encouraging them to pursue dreams, assisting them in overcoming obstacles, integrating resources and building up their creative arts skills, we also promote kind hearts and giving back to society.

 During the past 3 years, the Project has reached out to over 3200 young people in Seminars to inspire them the possibility to covert interest into life goals by conducting creation; has delivered elementary animation training courses of up to 35 hours each to over 190 youngsters; over 40 young people received 9-month of no less than 1100 hours intensive Professional Animator training, while about 80% graduates from our Professional Animator training program have joined the Creative Industry afterwards.

 Besides the personal growth and development of the youngsters, we are thrilled to be able to establish an Alumni Group with them to support/inspire youth force in Creative Digital Art Industry.

 As the project comes to its completion, we celebrate with our graduates of their achievements, and encourage them to continue pursuing dreams with this Closing Ceremony.  


Let’s support them with power, love and trust!
