Organised by the Cultural Affairs Bureau (IC, from the Portuguese acronym), the “Tap Siac Craft Market” will be held from 16 to 18 April and from 23 to 25 April at Tap Siac Square. The call for proposals of creative handicraft workshops is open from today and interested parties are welcome to submit.
Inaugurated in 2008, the “Tap Siac Craft Market” has been a platform for cultural and creative practitioners to display and sell their products, and has become a distinctive brand in the cultural and creative market in Macao. The scale of the upcoming “Tap Siac Craft Market” will be the same as that of November last year. There will be handicraft and creative gastronomy stalls, creative handicraft workshops and music performances.
Applications for creative handicraft workshops are open from today until 11:59pm on 4 March. Applicants may apply either by submitting hard copies or by email. The printed application form can be obtained from and submitted at the reception of the Cultural Affairs Bureau Building, located at Tap Siac Square, during office hours, while the electronic form can be downloaded from the “Tap Siac Craft Market” website at www.craftmarket.gov.mo. If the number of eligible applicants exceeds the quota, IC will select the proposals of handicraft workshops by drawing lots.
IC will continue to pay close attention to the development of the outbreak, follow the relevant guidelines of the Health Bureau, and make appropriate arrangements for the activities. For enquiries, please contact Ms. Zhou, staff member of IC, through tel. no. 8399 6289 during office hours.
