Public Forum: Advocating the social value of the arts - the role of arts administrators cum Information session of EMA(AME) programme
Public Forum: Arts education with a difference: how to highlight the social and educational value of the arts ?
 
Most arts education programmes in town emphasize skill-based training and focus on students’ achievement in graded examinations.  However, the arts education programmes founded by our two speakers highlight on the social and education value of the arts. The Music Children Foundation offers free music lessons to underprivileged children in Sham Shui Po and aims to nurture their confidence, sense of responsibility and team spirit. Rooftop Institute invites Asian and local artists to conduct artistic research and discussions on contemporary social and cultural issues. It strives to broaden the international perspective of local youngsters through their engagement with Asian artists.  
 
The speakers will share with us the rationale behind their vision, the challenges they face and the impact they are making, as well as how they equip themselves to realize their dreams.

How cultural managers benefited from the EMA(AME) programme?
(Chinese version only for students’ endorsements) 
 
'EMA課程提供了一個宏觀的視野,讓我知道更多自己公司的市場位置及方向,可以讓我更準確地制定公司未來的方案。很多時候,經理級的人員只專注在公司內部的規劃和管理,而忽略了公司外面的環境。 EMA課程剛好提供了一個平臺去觀察現時的藝術前景和整個社會的藝術發展。 EMA的Case Study亦有很大幫助,提供了一個標準,讓我知道公司現時的位置和創新構思。'
 
  • Ms. Teo Bee Lan, Senior Manager (Corporate Manager) - Singapore Chinese Orchestra Company Limited
 
EMA的課程對我來說真的非常的實在和實用,現在我已經不再怕寫任何的三年計劃、五年計劃,而且不再怕看和寫財政預算。也懂得編寫很紮實的課程計劃,整個課程讓我將我所有的知識融會貫通可以說是為我提供在職的訓練。再者EMA的課程像為我打開了一扇窗我可以更快地投入和融入藝術行政的工作中。'
 
  • Ms. Annike Pong, Executive Director - Music Children Foundation Limited Hong Kong
 
‘我覺得這個課程非常好的地方是我的同學都在藝術界擁有多年的工作經驗,同時在上課時能在老師身上沒收很多經驗,這是非常難得的機會。除此之外,經過多年的工作 ,雖然你知道過去的工作是怎樣做的,但是你沒有時間去思考,整理過去的經驗和想法。很重要的是沉澱一下,安靜下來,可能會更清楚將來的路要怎樣走,怎麼樣去增加自己的能力。這就是為什麼我覺得這個課程在我工作生涯上能有所助益,可以幫助整理和回顧過去所有的工作經驗。’

The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts Performing Arts Education Centre – Organising Fringe Cultural/Art Festivals in Hong Kong
Why would we organise a “festival”? In fact, Hong Kong is never short of arts and cultural activities. Different people are organising different events. Yet, behind the flourishing scene are the challenges of how to gather like-minded people and participants, how to utilise the limited resources and time, and how to link up related activities in an organic way. The self-initiated arts and cultural activities in the community are facing various limitations, from capital, labour, resources to venues. What risks and opportunities are in store for them? In this sharing, we have invited two veteran arts and cultural festival organisers, who respectively coordinate “i-Dance Festival” and “Kowloon City Book Fair”, to share their experience.
 
Speakers:
Victor Ma @ i-Dance Festival
Ger Choi @ Kowloon City Book Fair
