Our Hong Kong Foundation - Arts Innovation: Symposium on “Unleashing our Museums
Our Hong Kong Foundation is delighted to invite you to the “Arts Innovation” Symposium on “Unleashing our Museums.” Arts and culture is key to what makes cities attractive, prosperous and open. Not only are the creative industries an avenue for job creation and economic development, it is through the arts that citizens have an opportunity to enjoy beauty, creativity and artistic endeavour, and engage in cultural exchange with peoples of different backgrounds. In our first paper in this research series, we focus on museums, one of the most important cultural institutions in a city. You are cordially invited to register for this event, on a first-come-first-served basis.  Speaker and panelist biographies can be found here. Should you have any enquiries, please dial (852) 2603 3062 or (852) 2603 3008, or email us at symposium@ourhkfoundation.org.hk.
 
 
Highlight Event
 
 
Hong Kong Art Festival Plus Event - Orientalism Today
"Oriental" is an old-fashioned term, redolent of age-old stereotypes borne out of fantasy and prejudice. Yet we continue to stage, perform - and love - works that trade with "oriental" imagery, whether visual, verbal or musical. Think of Scheherazade or Turandot. This makes us uneasy. Hence the pleas for critical distance. But can we pass judgement without being reductive? Hasn't the time come for considering Asian stereotypes about the West? Taking cue from the programme of this year's Hong Kong Arts Festival such as La Bayadère and Dream of the Red Chamber, a panel of young scholars debate the lingering appeal of escapist fantasies and the role of Hong Kong as incubator of new ideas about East, West, and anything in between.

Cinematic Theatre "The Night when You Come to Repossess the Flat"Complimentary tickets for Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association Members
Do you really want to keep your flat so much, even at the expense of your life?
 
One evening, Joseph, an old friend and the landlord of David, pays a sudden visit. This is more than a casual reunion - Joseph wishes to repossess the flat. Since the lease is yet to expire, David refuses to move out. No one is able to convince the other. Their argument begins from this flat. It then touches on the relationship amongst Grace (David’s wife) and they two, the difficulties of living in Hong Kong and even the value of life. Their conflicts are no longer just about this flat. Things are getting out of control…
