“Arts Administrator 101” Series - A Conceptual Framework for Fundraising on the Arts
Fundraising for the arts is part of the sustainable development action plan for any arts organisation and non-profit organisation in the world today.  In decades, fundraising actually made one essential discipline in the U.S. and many European countries, it doesn’t only help bringing in extra income for the arts organisation, but also bridging the organisation to different stakeholders and gaining recognition and support from them. In fact, a successful fundraising campaign requires advanced marketing skills with a solid  community relationship building.
Facing all the challenges of the 21st century, arts managers are asked to take an active approach in fundraising by making use of the market information, data management as well as staying on top of the latest trends for an effective fundraising campaign.  So, what is fundraising for the arts?  How do we organise a fundraising campaign? In the upcoming talk, Vivien will share with us the concept of fundraising and her tips on managing fundraising campaigns with some real case studies.
Vivien has been active in the arts scene for over 20 years and she is regarded as one of the early forerunners in development in the Hong Kong's art scene.  Vivien joined the Hong Kong Arts Festival Society in 1991 as the head of the Development department and was appointed as Head of Institutional Advancement of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra in 2003. Since 2011, Vivien has been lecturing on Fundraising and Development for the Arts at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music and the Shanghai Theatre Academy, Shanghai.
As 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.

Call for applications: Master of Arts in Curating and Art History (MACAH) Programme (Application deadline: 30 June)
The Department of Visual Studies at Lingnan University has recently launched a new programme—Master of Arts in Curating and Art History (MACAH)—to be commenced in September 2020.

MACAH combines two disciplines into one: museum curating and art history, with options to engage in practicum and study abroad programmes. Aside from required and elective courses, students can choose to curate a group exhibition or complete a research dissertation as capstone experience. An internship programme and an overseas summer school are arranged to enhance students’ international exposure, and their interaction with art historians, collectors and museum professionals. Students can also benefit from the insights and experiences of eminent scholars and experienced curators who are involved in our events.

The programme is suitable for those who wish to pursue advanced study in art history, and professional careers in museums, curatorial and other art-related industries. Through studying art theories and collections, curatorial practice, art projects, entrepreneurial initiatives, and professional training, MACAH offers students multiple perspectives to explore and engage in the development of art and cultural landscapes in Hong Kong, Asia and beyond.

Full programme details are available online at www.ln.edu.hk/visual/macah. Those who are interested in applying for the MACAH programme are invited to submit online application by 30 June 2020.

“Flowers fade, good days pass”

Renowned choreographer Mui Cheuk Yin will stage a new work, which is inspired by preeminent Taiwanese writer Pai Hsien-yung’s short story The Last Night of Madam Chin from his Taipei People series. The Last Dance travels back to the old Taipei, reminiscing the glamorous days of a hostess that will never return.
Dancing with a strange young man on the dance floor, a faded beauty is suddenly reminded of the sensitivity and vulnerability of her own self years ago. Tonight is an ending to a past; while glamour and melancholy dance together, she takes her final glimpses and murmurs. One’s life lessons are witnessed in one’s fate—is this salvation, or is this destiny?
