HKAAA Updates
 
Arty Hour @ HKAAA (August 2016) – Chat-chat with Founder of art-mate, one-stop online platform for arts programme
Let's Arty Hour!
 
Arts and cultural organizations often spend a lot of manpower and resources to handle ticketing and registration duties for their performances and programmes. Yet some online platform could provide simple and effective system to manager the enrollment, payment and registration process in one-go and reduce the administration burden of arts administrators. Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association (HKAAA) has invited Ms Jacqueline Lo, the Founder of art-mate, to introduce her one-stop online platform, which is tailor-made for Hong Kong art industry, and explain how arts administrators can utilize the system.
 
Arty Hour @ HKAAA is a causal occasion for thoughts to collide and wild ideas to flow. We would like to invite all fellow arts practitioners and anyone with an interest in arts & culture to join the gathering.

Come, share your views, and experience with us!
