HKAAA E-newsletter (Issue#3 May 2020)
Late-night Art Talk Series - Part 4
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.
