“Arts Administrator 101” Series - Career Talk on Chinese Opera in Hong Kong and Site-visit of Yau Ma Tei Theatre
(Chinese version only)
香港藝術行政人員協會「藝術行政人員101系列」是由不同界別的專業人士現場教授各種有助職場發展的實踐技巧,讓新鮮人打好基本功。同時歡迎具經驗的藝術行政人員參加,溫故知新。
 
油麻地戲院於1930年落成,是市區碩果僅存的戰前戲院。建築物具有的特徵元素包括正門入口兩旁門柱、中式鈄(斜)屋頂和具裝飾藝術主義的正立面及山牆、支撐屋頂的鋼桁架及木檁條,以及原有舞台的拱門和側牆。油麻地戲院在1998年7月結束營業,同年獲古物諮詢委員會評為二級歷史建築。
 
香港藝術行政人員協會將邀請香港八和會館及西九文化區的資深藝術行政人員介紹香港的戲曲界的入行須知與未來發展,以及由八和會館代表帶大家實地參觀前後台,認識粵劇舞台運作及戲院的建築特色。

Highlight Recap
 
Highlight Recap – Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association Recruitment Day 2017
Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association Recruitment Day 2017 organized by Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association was successfully held on 15 July at HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity.
 
The Recruitment Day aims to provide a one-stop recruitment opportunity for the arts organizations and people who want to join the art field. Nine renowned arts organizations had joined our event, and more than thirty arts related positions were provided by them. The Recruitment Day attracted near 150 job seekers of different backgrounds and most of them found this a great oppourtunity.
 
Apart from recruitment, the interviewees found the curriculum vitae screening service provided by the resource company, Adecco Hong Kong, very useful. We hope the recruitment day can help more job seekers with aspiration to get into the arts field.
 
Featured Event
 
The Work Project Clinches Gold at The A’ Design Award & Competition
Having opened only last September, with the vision to establish 'Office 2.0’ – the most optimal environment to meet the changing needs of today’s professionals for enhancing work productivity, The Work Project has already won a Gold award at the renowned A’ Design Award & Competition for the ‘Interior Space and Exhibition Design’ category. In addition, The Work Project is also one of eight finalists shortlisted at the well-respected INDE.Awards in the ‘Work Space’ category.
 
“I am very proud and humbled by the results that The Work Project has achieved since its inception. From day one I wanted to create a beautiful, modern working space with unprecedented flexibility for professionals to enhance their work productivity with their wellbeing at the very essential core,” said Junny Lee, Founder of The Work Project.  He added, “This is affirmation and recognition that our design thinking philosophy speaks to the needs of the knowledge worker today.”
 
The enviable multisensory co-working space has infused a combination of design features to make it a highly desirable work environment. These include elevated feature meeting rooms, each crafted with curved timber canopies that are lined with acoustic fabric soffits; an original hydroponic vertical garden, creating a plant filled environment to enhance work productivity; and shared spaces that are particularly designed to increase chance encounters, such as the lounges, work bars, and signature bean tables, which are sharing tables with playful curved edges that allow members to work individually while simultaneously encouraging interaction with one another.

Ingredients of TIME - Learn from the Past · Play Now · Lead in the Future
 
Exhibition: “Between Art and Other Worlds” – by Artist Hanison Lau
 
“I don’t have bluish-green eyes, but since my childhood I have been able to see things that others cannot see.”

Hanison Lau, a visual artist, has had a longstanding relationship with the Fringe Club, and in the building he has had astounding experiences of the unimaginable sense of things.

This summer, he will explore this affinity.
Is seeing believing?  Or is seeing not necessarily believing?
Through his art, he aims to break through convention, offer new possibilities and challenge so-called “reality”.

Music Nation: Slava's SnowShow
“Slava’s Snowshow is to clowning what Cirque du Soleil is to the circus…Slava’s Snowshow is as theatrical as it is simple, as involving as it is inspiring." - Variety

The highly-reviewed stage spectacle ‘Slava’s Snowshow’, which is set to leave audiences snow-bound in this hot summer, will come back to Hong Kong in August after a sell-out winter season ten years ago.

Music Nation is preparing to host the live event, created and staged by the most celebrated living clown, Russian pantomime artist Slava Polunin, from 1- 6 August at the Lyric Theatre, Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.

Tickets on sale Thursday April 27
The show will be staged from 8:00pm on August 1-6, with two shows at 02:00pm and 08:00pm on August 5-6. Tickets are now available from Hong Kong Ticketing’s box offices and online at: http://www.hkticketing.com/events/WCSLAVA0817

The stage show, a visual masterpiece loved by teens and adults alike, comes highly recommended for children above eight years of age.

Slava’s Snowshow is a fusion of traditional and contemporary theatrical clowning that weaves a beautifully crafted, vibrant visual fantasy. Among the many unique and striking experiences Slava’s Snowshow will offer audiences is the creation of a winter snowstorm right inside the theatre. The show has entertained audiences in more than 30 countries and 120 cities, including New York, London, Los Angeles, Paris, Rome, Hong Kong, Sydney, Rio de Janeiro and Moscow. The London Times described the show as a theatre classic of the 20th century and dubbed Slava Polunin as ‘the best clown in the world’.
