The competitions place an emphasis on the Performing Arts (theatre, poetry, various traditional dances and instruments). The Constituency Arts Competitions commenced in 2010 and aim to nurture talent and provide leisure and recreation for young people. The objectives of the programme are to unearth talent, particularly amongst the youth; keep youth meaningfully engaged so as to avoid substance abuse; promote artistic talent as well as provide leisure activities for youth.
