2nd Hong Kong Arts Administration Recruitment Day
Presented by Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association
Exclusive Media Partner: Classified Post (South China Morning Post)
 
Following the huge success of our first Arts Administration Recruitment Day, the Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association is launching its second large-scale arts administration recruitment day at Sheung Wan Civic Centre on 31 January 2015 (Sat).
 
Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association strives to support the advancement of a flourishing arts scene by establishing a network connecting arts administrators in local and neighbor areas. To link the shortages of different levels of work in the arts field with demands to arts jobs, the HKAAA is going to launch its second Arts Administration Recruitment Day on 31 January 2015 (Sat).
 
The Recruitment Day will serve as a platform for the participating arts organizations and job seekers, offering an opportunity for on-location job application and interview. Prestigious arts administration managers are invited to share with us their views and experience as well as the future and opportunities in the profession on the Recruitment Day.

Dialogue with HKAAA
 
The Art of the Turnaround: Creating and Maintaining Healthy Arts Organizations
by Michael M. Kaiser

 
The executive talent of Michael Kaiser has once again impressed me when I came across an article posting international arts news last month. Michael Kaiser is an internationally renowned arts management expert, his recent endeavor is to resolve Philadelphia Theatre Company’s financial crisis. His remarkable successes in bringing arts organizations back from the brink of bankruptcy earned him the name of “The Turnaround King”. Michael Kaiser stepped down as the president of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts last year, and is currently the Chairman of DeVos Institute of Arts Management at the University of Maryland.
 
Kaiser is the author of five books on arts management, in one of his books, “The Art of the Turnaround: Creating and Maintaining Healthy Arts Organizations”, he shares his ten basic rules of reviving arts organization. With case studies, he illustrates his thoughts and experience on maintaining a healthy operation model. The four case studies of reviving major arts organizations feature Kansas City Ballet, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, American Ballet Theatre, and London’s Royal Opera House
 
I believe it is what occupies arts managers’ mind, the ways of operating and managing healthy arts organizations. Although there might be differences due to cultural backgrounds of Hong Kong and the States, we can always learn from foreign examples to ourselves for future challenges.
 
Looking forward to read Michael Kaiser’s new book to be published next month, "Curtains?: The Future of the Arts in America"!
