Recap on Arts Management Experience in Taipei, Singapore & Adelaide: Sharing Session – Fellowships for Arts Management 2013/14
Arts Management Experience in Taipei, Singapore & Adelaide: Sharing Session – “Fellowships for Arts Management 2013/14” was held successfully on 9 October 2014. Thank you to the fellows and the attendees for the sharing and active participation once again! In the sharing session, the four fellows shared their own observation and experience with the attendees, introducing them the arts organizations in Taipei, Singapore & Adelaide and their arts management models.
 
The four fellows shared on their experience from the arts management fellowship programme and explained the latest arts happenings as well as new arts constructions in their respective countries of placement.
 
Sharing by our four fellows of “Fellowships for Arts Management 2013/14”:
 
Yolanda (Manager (Xiqu), Leisure and Cultural Services Department)
Internship placement at National Chiang Kai-shek Cultural Center, Taiwan

 
As Yolanda works on xiqu at LCSD, she pays particular attention to the development and performances of traditional cultural and arts during her stay in Taiwan. Due to the historical period when Taiwan was ruled by the Japanese government, Yolanda noticed that significant traces of influence from Japanese anime can be identified from the traditional arts works.
Yolanda participated in the HuaShan Living Arts Festival and had an impressive experience of arts outreach activity there. The outreach experience carries out in the form of a vehicle ride featuring one artist and one participant as passengers. The artist and the participant interact as they mutually experience distance and intimacy in the car’s private cabin. The two would then be driven to different arts organizations, where the artist would lead the audience through a unique artistic adventure. For Yolanda, she was driven to a kindergarten where the artist arranges arts education on a usual basis. The artist brought Yolanda in and they interact in some kind of artistic exchange there.


During her placement, National Chiang Kai-shek Cultural Center was undergoing restructuring. The center became an incorporated administrative agency, and together with Taichung Metropolitan Opera House and the Wei-Wu-Ying Center for the Arts in the south, the center was assigned under the management of National Performing Arts Center. Yolanda shared her views on the differences of arts groups under the two systems.
 
Edith (Programme Manager (Performing Arts and Moving Images)
Internship placement at National Chiang Kai-shek Cultural Center, Taiwan

 
During her stay, Edith witnessed the Sunflower Student Movement, as she would pass through the protest venue every day, she noticed how highly related art and mass movements are.
Besides working as an intern at National Chiang Kai-shek Cultural Center, Edith made use of her leisure time to visit different arts organizations in Taiwan. She visited GuLing Street Avant-garde Theatre, which often provides venue support to middle and small arts groups. She also went to Yilan County and visited the newly moved in home base of Puppet & Its Double Theater, where the theatre members carry out rehearsals and live in at the same time. Edith realized how intimate the relationship between arts workers in Taiwan is, that they practically live together as a big family.

   
Myra (Development Manager, Hong Kong Philharmonic)
Internship placement at The 
Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay, Singapore

 
The Esplanade is the centre of arts and cultural development of the Singaporean government. When seeking sponsorships, the Esplanade team makes it a standard to ask whether the potential sponsors are supporting some smaller organization at the same time. Such a move impresses Myra as the Esplanade is indeed caring for the entire arts and cultural scene of the Singapore by avoiding competing with small arts groups in terms of resources. She thinks that all large-scale organizations should follow such practice.
Being such a large-scale organization, the Esplanade faces the danger of a terrorist attack. Thus the centre carries out strict security check on the audience of every performance and makes sure personal belongings are kept in the cloak room before the audience are admitted into the venue. Although the security check procedure is time-consuming, the Esplanade manages to keep every single performance to start on time.

 
Ellen (Arts and Culture Manager, HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity)
Internship placement at Adelaide Festival Centre, Australia

 
During placement, Ellen participated in the preparation of the OzAsia Festival in Adelaide. Ellen found that Australians’ Chinese impression stays with the cultural symbols like the colour of red. Performance of this year’s festival features traditional craftsmanship with extravagant and dazzling design.
Another trace of cultural differences is seen in the Australian festival team’s way of organizing visits for the Shandong arts groups. Owing to different political and cultural circumstances, it is perhaps difficult for foreigners to understand certain considerations of arts workers from the mainland China.
As Adelaide is a community with many elderly, the festival team adopts a strategic plan in organizing the performances and related activities. To encourage participation of elderly citizens, shows are conducted in the morning and during daytime in addition to the usual performances in the evening.
Ellen also participated in the South Australia Living Artists Festival, which encourages any interesting parties to join in exhibiting their visual arts works. Ellen said that she was impressed by the local people’s enthusiasm in participating in artistic activities as many people open their houses, garages and restaurants and invite people to look at their arts, or offer their private space as exhibition venues.
 

 
Light refreshment was prepared in the end of the sharing session and the participants continued to interact with each other for about another two hours. We are delighted to see such positive atmosphere at the sharing session and hope to provide more opportunities as such in the near future to bring the community even closer.
Besides the Sharing Session, our four fellows share with friends in the arts field the bits and pieces in their placement in the FAME Journals featured in HKAAA’s e-newsletter. Please click below links to read more.
