【Action Now for Early Bird Special Pass】2018 Cultural Leadership Summit – Arts Touring & Cultural Touring: New Markets, New Audiences, New Strategies
Date: 8 – 9 November 2018 (Thursday & Friday)
Time: 10am – 6pm
Venue: The Hong Kong Jockey Club Amphitheatre, The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts
 
Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association’s 2018 Cultural Leadership Summit, an important annual cultural event, which is into its 9thedition this year with the theme of “Arts Touring & Cultural Tourism: New Markets, New Audiences, New Strategies”, will be held at the Hong Kong Jockey Club Amphitheatre of the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts from 8th to 9th November of 2018.
 
Embedded in an arts organization’s mission statement or outlined in its artistic plan, the desire of touring, to go beyond our performing microcosm, allures all.  Enhancing visibility and reputation for excellence as well as to attract artists to collaborate and supporters to patronize, taking your arts on the road is an increasing expensive yet important enterprise.  Thus, how to share your arts on the global stage smartly, strategically and successfully has been vaulted to a white-hot issue for many arts practitioners.

Where are the new markets for my arts?  What should I consider in order to devise an effective touring strategy?  Where can I seek for the elusive funding?  A question perhaps more pertinent to policy-makers: how can all this artistic exchange and peripateticism be translated into inbound audience mobility?

Join 400 participants from Hong Kong and around the region in this provocative journey of discovery. Together, through discussions, debates, keynotes and workshops, the vigorous interrogation on the subject of arts mobility will yield a better framework, and inspiration, for success.
 

Early Bird Special Pass is available from now till 30 September 2018.

Early Bird 2-Day Special Pass (Welcome Lunch on 8.11.2018 is included): HK$ 1800
Early Bird 2-Day Special Pass (Welcome Lunch on 8.11.2018 is included) – HKAAA members: HK$ 1530

【Highlight Recap】Arty Hour @ HKAAA – Sharing Session with Arts Scholarship Awardees of Sir Edward Youde Scholars Association
Co-presented by Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association (HKAAA) and Sir Edward Youde Scholars Association (SEYSA), the sharing session was successfully held on 30 August 2018 (Thu) at the Hive Sheung Wan. All participants spent a pleasant and informative evening together!
 
We were glad to invite Ms. Judy Tam, the President of SEYSA; Dr. Etta Fung and Ms. Koala Yip, the past scholarship awardees of Sir Edward Youde Memorial Fund (SEYMF) to share how the Fund will benefit Hong Kong arts practitioners.
 
Ms. Judy Tam first introduced the background and purposes of SEYMF. Then Dr. Etta Fung and Ms. Koala Yip talked about their interesting life stories and invaluable learning experiences respectively. They also shared some useful tips on applying SEYMF to participants. At last, they strongly encouraged students to utilize the Fund for continuing education in Hong Kong or overseas. This helps to expand students’ horizons and to explore different art cultures.

Extra performance of CCDC ‘Mr Blank’ due to ticketing demand!
Programme Details
 
CCDC resident choreographer Sang Jijia boldly challenges the relationship between space and surveillance in his new contemporary dance theatre, Mr Blank. Comparing with Sang’s previous works, more multimedia and interactive elements are being used, with the production resembling an art installation in which the audience and dancers play a main part.

Due to overwhelming public demand, an additional performance will be held on October 7 at 5pm at the Studio Theatre, Hong Kong Cultural Centre. Tickets are available at URBTIX now.
 
Untitled III by Wayson Poon
Form without form,
Path without path,
Motion without motion,
Self without self.

The choreography is inspired by the paintings of Liu Wentao, in which 'the intertwining straight lines result in a tranquil geometric space'.  From a Chinese philosophy perspective, the choreography goes on to explore the concepts of ‘dot-line-plane’ through the physicality of the dancers, their extended dynamics, and the relations in between these two.  Untitled III reveals the shifting relations between the states of ‘Have Not, or Non-existence’ and ‘Have, or Existence’, further to reflect the emotional and physical distance between individuals in order to attain inner peace.

【Hong Kong Arts Centre】 The 24th ifva Awards Now Calling for Entry
Organised by the Hong Kong Arts Centre and sponsored by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, the 24th ifva Awards officially opens in August. This year ifva attempts to connect with the unique world of the creators, and also queries the meaning and essence of creating. Apart from inviting creative talents to serve as jurors, this year ifva’s publicity collaterals and trailers are all created by young independent filmmaker Wong Fei-pang, who looks into the inner lonely world of artists from his own first-hand perspective. The black tone of the visual reflects the lonesome and the single-mindedness which might remind us of falling into the darkest abyss, while the white marks on it looks like sprays from the sea, allegorising whirlpools in the mind during brainstorming. All these imageries relate back to the beliefs that a creative talent holds on to: “Only for the sake of creation – delve into it when the time comes.” 

ifva provides the soil to cultivate creativity, and offers a platform for emerging creative talents to demonstrate their capabilities. The 24th ifva is now calling for entry under five categories: Open, Youth, Animation, Media Art and Asian New Force, inviting short films, animations and media art works from locally and across Asia.
 
The 24th ifva is now calling for entry:
Submission deadline: 15 October, 2018 (Monday), 6:00 p.m.
