Ms. Amanda Sun
Founder and Director, Arts For Good Foundation
Amanda Sun grew up in Mainland China with rich experience in social science research, art research and project management with proven record of working with education institutions, as well as creating educational art projects for students in Hong Kong.
Being a strong advocate of community inclusion and avid art lover, she championed art as an important common ground for fostering a diverse and inclusive society for Hong Kong. She deeply believed in the social power of art, and founded Arts for Good Foundation in 2020 to provide high quality value-based and age appropriate art viewing, art-integrated learning projects and community-based learning experiences for students (aged 9-22) in Hong Kong. Amanda is a dedicated change maker with the goal of driving positive changes for the future of Hong Kong. She holds a Master's degree in recreation and tourism policy and planning, and a Bachelor's degree in Marketing.
Arts for Good Foundation is a social enterprise seeking for public good through arts with the mission of fostering social inclusion through the power of arts. The interpretation of diversity and inclusion of Arts for Good Foundation is to foster perspectives, nurture ethical and respectful minds towards cultural differences, and cultivate common cultural identities through educating future generations, and engage children and youths to seek common humanity values and make positive changes together in Hong Kong and for Hong Kong.
