HKAAA Updates
Arty Hour @ HKAAA (January 2017) –Starting a Career in Arts Administration in US and Europe
Let’s Arty Hour!

Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association (HKAAA) has invited Ms Laura Bennegadi, the Founder and CEO of the ArtBound Initiative (ABI), to talk about her experience as an arts administrator in New York City. Born and raised in Paris, Laura has extensive experience in theatre production, marketing and fundraising. After building a substantial network in performing and visual arts in USA and Europe, Laura launched ArtBound Initiative (ABI), an international internship program which provides access into the arts, an industry notoriously insular and difficult to penetrate. ABI connects students and recent graduates with artists and arts organizations in New York and Berlin.

During the Arty Hour, Laura will address the opportunities and strategies for students and young professionals to fast track their career in arts administration in USA and Europe.

‘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, students and anyone with an interest in arts & culture to join the gathering.
Speaker: Ms Laura Bennegadi, the Founder and CEO of ArtBound Initiative

The call for nominations til 3 January 2017 and for the first time, nominations will be accepted from anyone - from professionals in the industry to audience members. This year, in response to industry needs, production categories will be restructured into three “Outstanding Production” awards based on audience capacity – there will be one award each for productions in large, medium, and small venues. Technical awards will also undergo a revamp with each area considered separately rather than across the board leading to three design awards – one each for Lighting and/or Digital Design; Set and/or Costume Design; and, Music Composition and/or Sound Design.
