【Coming Up Next Week】2017 Cultural Leadership Summit - Building Our Future Audience
Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association’s 2017 Cultural Leadership Summit, an important annual cultural event, which is into its 8th edition this year with the theme of “Building Our Future Audience”, will be held at Amphitheatre of the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts from 26th to 27th September of 2017. 
The arts generate a range of benefits for people and society, from bringing individuals pleasure and captivation to helping communities build stronger social bonds.  Audience building is not an easy matter for arts organizations, however. Diversifying the current audience mix; converting people who are inclined to attend, but don’t, into attendees; getting current audience members to attend more often; how to adopt the latest technology and best practices borrowed from other sectors to help advances your own audience development strategies: these are difficult but important challenges that many arts organizations face – and want to tackle.
The two-day HKAAA Cultural Leadership Summit, with a roster of renowned international and local speakers, will review the current audience landscape in Hong Kong with its challenges and opportunities, and learn from the best practices by both international and local arts practitioners and organizations in order to put forth the most effective strategies to expand audiences, in both depth and width, for the arts and culture in our city.
Details of Cultural Leadership Summit 2017:
Date: 26 – 27 September 2017 (Tuesday & Wednesday)
Time: 10am – 6pm
Venue: The Hong Kong Jockey Club Amphitheatre, The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts

The Remarkable People Series – Naked Dialogue - No Past, No Future
“Death may be inevitable, but the death of the Singapore cemetery is not.”— Kevin Tan (Professor of Law, NUS, Conservationist & Music Critic)
If you want to voice your dissent against government’s decision, what can you do without taking to the street or breaking the law?
Hong Kong is often referred to as the twin city of Singapore. When facing similar political challenges, how do we establish a legitimate platform for policy discourse and civil action?
Back in 2010, the Singapore government decided to exhume a chunk of Bukit Brown Cemetery and to build a major highway through it. Kevin Tan, who has spent over 20 years advocating for political awareness and heritage conservation, helped to convince the authorities to fund a thorough documentation of the graves. He was joined by a group of conservationists and the campaign on Bukit Brown has grown into a movement ever since.
Can Hong Kong get some insights from him?
This dialogue is to explore ways to communicate legitimate concerns of public policies; also touch on heritage conservation, enjoyment of music and Singaporean life-style.
  • Kevin Tan (Professor of Law, Conservationist & Music Critic | Singapore)
  • Benny Chia (Founder of the Fringe Club | Hong Kong)
Date: 7 Oct 2017 (Sat)
Time: 3:30 - 5pm
Venue: Fringe Upstairs
In English | Free Admission
(Free LPL Fringe Tour* in English / Chinese at 2:30pm)
