Late-night Art Talk Series
Presented by: Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association
Supported by: U.S. Consulate General Hong Kong and Macau
The coronavirus outbreak poses a challenge to the Arts & Cultural industry all over the world. Many art fairs and performances are forced to cancel while most of the cultural institutions are closed until further notice. In this unprecedented time, arts groups and organizations must explore new ways to interact with the public through virtual space.
How do we build or develop a vibrant community during this critical period? How do we stay connected through arts? How do we support arts from home?
In May 2020, HKAAA presents “Late-night Art Talk Series”. HKAAA will invite numerous local arts practitioners and speakers from the States to share their insights on the following scopes: what we can do during the outbreak (part 1 and 2), how would we plan for post-outbreak (part 3 and 4). 
“Late-night Art Talk Series” webinars will be streamed on Zoom every Monday in May.

We welcome all arts administrators, artists and cultural entrepreneurs to join the event!
