HKAAA Updates
 
2015 Cultural Leadership Summit - Raising for our Future: Arts Funding and Philanthropy in Hong Kong
Jointly presented by Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association and Leisure and Cultural Services Department
In Partnership with British Council and West Kowloon Cultural District Authority
 
Date: 10-11 June 2015 (Wednesday & Thursday)
Venue: Ko Shan Theatre New Wing

 
Box office, public funding and private donations/sponsorships represent the 3 financial lifelines to any performing arts organization or artist. Hong Kong, with its own unique course of arts development, has seen its arts industry focused on the first two legs until recent years when the rapid development of the arts and culture is outpacing the increases in public funding and box office revenue.  More focus, therefore, has been given to raising private funds by organizations of all sizes from WKCDA to cultural SMEs in order to cater to their own artistic and financial needs and sustain their growths.
 
Cultural Leadership Summit is HKAAA’s annual major event. With different themes every year, the association pursues excellence and professionalism in the practice of arts administrators.  2015 marks the 30th Anniversary of the HKAAA. With the theme “Raising for our Future: Arts Funding and Philanthropy in Hong Kong”, this year’s Cultural Leadership Summit aims to develop an enterprising culture in which the artistic visions of the organization or individual is placed at the very heart of their business model and ethos in order to attract the highest level of support from private giving and businesses.

Dialogue with HKAAA
 
Taiwan Xinbeitou Art Space 71
Earlier in March, I spent my vacation in Taiwan watching performances at the Taiwan International Festival of Arts. During my stay, I took the opportunity to visit my good friend Alina, Secretary General of Taiwan Association of Theatre Technology (TATT), and interviewed her about the idea of Xinbeitou Art Space 71 on the spot. I would like to know more about how Taiwan’s approach to arts space development as there are projects on transforming vacant spaces into arts spaces in Hong Kong too. Recently the Hong Kong Arts Development Council and Tai Po District Council are collaborating on a project in turning a vacant school premise into a performing arts space.
 

 
Alina: Ms Alina Lin, Secretary General of Taiwan Association of Theatre Technology (TATT)
Winona: Ms Winona Chan, General Manager, Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association

Winona: First of all, thank you for arranging today’s visit and agreeing to this interview with HKAAA. Would you share with us what is the “Xinbeitou Art Space 71” project about?
 
Alina: Xinbeitou Art Space 71 is one of the arts spaces in the “Art Reverberations Space Network”, which is initiated by the Taipei City Department of Cultural Affairs. “Art Reverberations Space Network” was launched in early 2005 to revitalize unused spaces owned by the city by turning them into rehearsal and creative spaces for artists.  Private organizations in Taipei can hand unused spaces over to the government for the public use, as a way of giving back to society. “Art Reverberations Space Network” therefore features many units in private apartments and commercial buildings. Xinbeitou Art Space 71 is the only former campus space. The space was originally known as Taipei Municipal Yi-Fang Elementary School. As the school’s scale of development gradually outgrew the size of the campus, the school relocated and the site became an idle space in 2008. Entrusted by the Taipei City Department of Cultural Affairs, TATT has been managing the site since December 2008. Taipei City Department of Cultural Affairs opens the application to site’s right of operation by tender every year. We have successfully obtained the right to operate this space for six times.
 
Winona: What kind of assessment criteria does the Taipei City Department of Cultural Affairs adopt in deciding which organization get to manage the site? And how does TATT manage the space?
 
Alina: Taipei City Department of Cultural Affairs does not directly manage the spaces under the “Art Reverberations Space Network”. They normally entrust agencies in managing the sites, with the aim of a flexible management that provides arts groups with spaces for their stable development, in order to keep talents for the city’s long-term arts and cultural development. There are property management companies from the business sector tendering for the right of management too. But as they don’t understand the needs of arts groups, usually they fail in obtaining the right. TATT works closely with arts groups and understands their needs. Moreover, we have been performing well in utilizing space and cooperating with the resident arts groups. Therefore TATT succeeded in getting the right to manage the space.
 
The Department of Cultural Affairs offers a fixed amount management fee to TATT for our work. Before we began to manage the site, the Department of Cultural Affairs had already renovated the space. They are responsible for the large-scale installations such as sprung floor, mirrored walls etc., they also subsidy for the soundproof facilities while other costs are collected from fundraising by the Art Space. The resident arts groups are responsible for the routine expenses for utilization and small-scale renovation works. TATT manages the sapce and the usage of rehearsal rooms by using the fees paid by arts groups with transparency.
 
   
 
Winona: How do arts groups apply for residency in the arts space?
 
Alina: Arts groups need to go through a review mechanism and be assessed by a panel assigned by the Department of Cultural Affairs. The space now includes 5 small, 4 middle and 3 large rehearsal rooms and provide maximum 14 long-term resident groups.  Resident arts groups are required to pay a minimal usage fee and a very favourable amount for using rehearsal rooms. Application of the residency will be available upon availability of the space and the lease is for three years. The usage fee is used solely on the maintenance of facilities. All resident arts groups would meet to decide on the spending of usage fees, which will then be executed by TATT. TATT needs to prepare a financial report for the arts groups’ reference and for handing it to the Department of Cultural Affairs every month.
The Department of Cultural Affairs also requests the applying arts groups to suggest on the ways of giving back to the community. Take Xinbeitou Art Space 71 for example, we organize the Open Day annually for residents of the Xinbeitou district to come over and participate in arts activities arranged by the resident arts groups.
 
 
Winona: What do you think are the merits for organizations like TATT to operate these spaces as agencies?
 
Alina: As we understand the needs of arts groups, we would manage the site in a flexible manner and simplify administration procedures, aiming to facilitate the operation and development of arts groups. We would also communicate with the arts groups to understand their concerns, in order to provide the most favourable rehearsal and creative environment.
 
 
Winona: Thank you for your sharing, Alina.
