HKAAA Updates
“Arts Administrator 101” Series - Class 2: Getting to Know the Birth of 3D Printing Technology
Following the sucess of "Class 1: Getting to Know the Whole Design and Production Process at a Printing House", Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association is launching the second class of Arts Administrators 101 series "Getting to Know the Birth of 3D Printing Technology"!

Local arts administrators always face the issue of heavy workload with limited resources. They might take on a few different roles and handle major duties without any proper training.

We also welcome experienced art administrators to join us to enhance existing skill.

Chinese Contemporary Art Award (CCAA) - A Case Study on Global Culture
As part of our further educational programmes, Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) and Connecting Spaces Hong Kong-Zurich are co-presenting with the Hong Kong Institute of Education (HKIEd) to bring a series of courses - 'Global Practices in Cultural Management'. Suitable for fellow cultural managers, the three-part intensive course will take participants to three core parts of cultural management, with exclusive opportunities to learn from global cultural leaders from Hong Kong and Singapore, and a rare chance to hear from the successful story of the Chinese Contemporary Art Award (CCAA) - led by founder and renowned art collector, Dr Uli Sigg and joined by equally influential facilitators of the subject. This course will unreservedly share first-hand information about the art scene in China, and a wide range of contacts with relevant local and international institutions and actors. This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity for those who are interested in the Sigg Collection and Hong Kong's M+ Museum.
The course “ Chinese Contemporary Art Award - a Case Study on Global Culture” offers creative artists, cultural producers, and members of the general public exclusive insights into contemporary Chinese art, first-hand information about the art scene in China, and a wide range of contacts with relevant local and international institutions and actors. Coursework focuses on two key examples: the Sigg Collection and Hong Kong’s M+ Museum. Sessions build specialist knowledge and skills based on an approach to teaching and research developed especially for this programme. The research undertaken at the Institute for Contemporary Art Research (IFCAR) at Zurich University of the Arts, together with practical case studies on the development of Chinese contemporary art since the 1980s, ensure that this further education opportunity provides a complete new approach to this subject that offers an attractive mixture of theory and practice.

Highlight Event
Music Lab Festival 2016 - A Chatroom with Musicians: What Makes you a Musician?
Common sense for musicians dreaming the big stage:

Classical - Get a music degree, practice, enter competitions, win or lose, get lucky, get famous, perform.
Pop - Get pretty, practice, record, upload, get likes, get exposed, get lucky, get famous, get signed, perform.

Thankfully, these common notions have finally been challenged by innovative means. There are local music practitioners who form their own ensembles, organise their own concert series, build their original seasonal programme. There are independent artists who go busking all around the city, building their followers on digital platforms. There are crowdfunders who support meaningful small projects that would otherwise fail without the early-received funds.

In this dynamic environment nowadays, how do musicians perceive themselves, "follow their passion" and develop their work? Can we learn from their stories and re-value the work of an artist?

This chatroom will be a polyphonic chatroom with musicians at different stages. Hear how they think, what they say, the music they play.

Date: 25-2-2016 (Thur)
Time: 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Venue: K223, Knowles Building, University of Hong Kong

Sharing guests
Kung Chi Shing, Wong Jing, CY Leo@ Veloz Harmonica Quartet, Joseph Ho@ Set Tone Men, KaJeng Wong
