Cultural Journalism Campus (CJC) is an award-winning non-profit educational initiative to promote arts and culture among young people through the practice of cultural journalism, art criticism and storytelling. Since our inception in 2014, CJC has been organising various programmes to expose young people to arts and culture.
Our flagship event, the annual CJC Fellowship, has been taking place at Art Basel in Hong Kong since 2014. CJC Fellowship offers not only a unique learning opportunity for aspiring cultural journalists and art critics to get hands-on media experience at one of the world’s biggest art events. It also serves as a cultural exchange platform for young people from different cultural backgrounds.
Many of our alumni have gone to join the media and the arts and culture sector, including the Hong Kong Arts Festival, Affordable Art Fair, M+ museum, Ming Pao Weekly, HK01 and Apple Daily.
As an initiative committed to the cultural development of Hong Kong and Asia, CJC Fellowship is set to make a comeback for 2018 for the fifth year in a row at Art Basel in Hong Kong. Training opportunities and work experience for aspiring cultural journalists and art critics are seriously lacking in Hong Kong and in Asia, and the presence of CJC is the answer to the missing link in the cultural ecology in the city and the region. We are stationed at Art Basel at HKCEC from March 26 to 31, 2018.
