The Chinese Artist Association of Hong Kong
The Chinese Artists Association of Hong Kong (also known as Barwo) was established in 1953 and registered as a charity in 2009. The Association rolled out a Cantonese Opera Heritage Plan with four main goals, namely to safeguard traditional skills and crafts, strengthen professional training, develop markets and the audience, and conserve the tradition of Cantonese Opera. The main objective of the Association is to affirm and protect the viability of Cantonese Opera in Hong Kong, deepening the maintenance of conventional practice and expanding its outreach. Above all, the Association aims to ensure that Cantonese Opera in Hong Kong remains “a living heritage”.
