Introduction

Arts on Air 2021/22 takes "inheritance" as the theme to lead teachers and students to revisit the wonderful "Airwave Novel" radio dramas in the past. This year, veteran radio broadcasters are invited to share their experiences and participate in the recording of radio dramas, which students may experience how the radio broadcasters create scripts and stories and compose pieces of "Airwave Novel" radio dramas one after another.  Students may inherit the thinking and practice of artistic creation through the programme.

(a)

A new series of Arts on Air Radio Drama consisting of 3 episodes which are inspired by Cantonese opera, Shakespeare's play and symphony, coupled with guided appreciation materials and extension activities;

(b)

A sharing session with the veteran radio broadcasters;

(c)

A variety of workshops for students and teachers;

(d)

Co-creation of 3 episodes of Arts on Air Radio Drama by students, teachers, the arts group and the veteran radio broadcasters; and
