Cross All Borders: Dare to Be!



A Brand New Festival!
A Gathering for Broadening of Horizons and Colliding of Creative Sparkles!


Any flash of inspiration may lead to great innovation; any life experience may be transformed into a special piece of art; any step in an attempt may turn a dream into reality. ‘Ideas’, ‘experiences’ and ‘attempts’ made the possibility of ‘Cross All Borders 2020: Dare to Be!’ become a reality. It is from a single idea that we set out and connect with new and old friends through our artistic programmes by using four core themes: Pursuit, Gather, Breakthrough, and Sustain, to uphold the vision of ‘Arts without Borders’. With this, we hope to present a series of exciting and diverse art programmes for the audience.





**Taking into consideration the latest development of the local cases of COVID-19 and the latest government policy, "Dare to Explore", "Dare to Perform", "Dare to Share" and inclusive arts workshops of "CAB2020: Dare to Be!" will be changed to online programmes. Details will be announced later.**
