Guided tour of HSBC Archives – Hong Kong Stories
The seminar is full. Thank you very much for your support! 
HSBC Archives contains some of the best business and arts collection in the world, including annual reports, minute books, accounting ledgers, correspondences, photographs, cartoons, films, advertisements, banknotes and oral history. These records do not only reflect the colourful history of HSBC, but also capture the social, economic and political developments of Hong Kong and the wider region.
The tour in the Archives Gallery and Repository tells the story of HSBC's rich and eventful heritage in the Asia-Pacific region through rare exhibits, virtual galleries and interactive displays. The tour provides visitors opportunities to explore the intertwined history of the bank and Hong Kong with cutting-edge technology. Visitors can also learn about the bank's invaluable contributions to Hong Kong and be connected to the people who influence HSBC's story.
Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association (HKAAA) is honored to organise a guided tour at HSBC Archives and have invited representatives of HSBC to lead the archives tour. They will share their experience on curating and setting up the digital exhibition as well the behind-the-scenes about archives conservation.

Arty Hour @ HKAAA (January 2017) –Starting a Career in Arts Administration in US and Europe (Revised Event Time: 7pm to 9 pm)
The seminar is full. Thank you very much for your support! 
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
Date: 19 January 2017 (Thursday)
Time: 7pm to 9pm
