Part 2 - 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!

“Arts Administrator 101” Series - Curating New Media Arts Programme
The definition of new and emerging technologies constantly shift with time. New media arts appear when contemporary artists choose to use the latest media and technology as a medium of their work.

New media introduces a new way to create and to present, re-defining the relationship between the artist, the artwork and the viewer. The fast development of the internet also changes people’s conception of time and space. In this context, new media arts become ever-changing with complex modes of expression.

In the last episode of 2019/20 “Arts Administrator 101 Series”, Ms. Joel Kwong, an experienced media arts curator and the Programme Director of Microwave International New Media Arts Festival, will introduce us to the realm of new media arts and share her experience on curating and programming with us.

Joel has over 10 years of experience in curating, producing and managing media arts. She has been with Microwave International New Media Arts Festival since 2006, help facilitate the biggest new media arts platform in Hong Kong. In recent years, she has been given talks and lectures in schools, festivals and universities, including National University of Taiwan, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, HKICC, Baptist University and the University of Eletro-communications in Tokyo.

Concerning the outbreak of the novel coronavirus continues, the workshop will be live streamed on Zoom. We hope everyone stays positive in this low season and keeps improving ourselves for the upcoming challenges.

Featured Event
【Hong Kong Dance Company x Actors’ Family ---- “A Tale of the Southern Sky"】
“A Tale of the Southern Sky” - A Cheung Fei Fan and Lau Wing Tao Production
Thirteen years after the award-winning production of "The Border Town", the alliance is back to stage this original musical
Programme Introduction:
     In the late 1890s, ships from around the world come and go, transforming Hong Kong from a little fishing harbour into an important trading port. Chan Yat-shui (starring Angus Chan), a young man from Chiu Chow, travels to Hong Kong alone, determined to seek his fortune in this paradise. Through sheer dedication, he rises from the lowly status of a coolie at the docks to make a name for himself as the owner of a rice company.
     In 1920, a serious rice shortage breaks out in Hong Kong, allowing profiteering by the rice industry led by Yue Siu-hung (starring Chen Rong), and causing the people to suffer dreadfully. Chan must make a choice between profit and justice, and saves citizens’ lives with the help of the female pirate Tsui Lou-hoi (starring Xie Yin).
     By 1941, when the city stands at the brink of failure, Chan’s life has become deeply intertwined with Hong Kong.

Dialogue with Music Alumna Colleen Lee Ka-ling: Harmony in Feverish Times
Epidemics always hold a mirror up to society. In such unquiet times, how do we maintain calm and composure? Internationally renowned pianist Colleen shows how. A piano major at the School of Music of HKAPA, Colleen graduated in 2003, the year of the SARS outbreak. 17 years on, she shares with Academy News readers about the friendship she made amid SARS and the reflection she has in light of the recent pandemic. Being someone with a gentle and tender nature, Colleen maintains her composure in the face of uncertainty. Whether happy, sad or disappointed, experiences are the nutrients with which she infuses her music and life.
