Some people find it difficult to appreciate classical music. Some even hated it, thinking it is just a status symbol. How could classical musicians and organisations break those barriers, and bridge their music to the people? What is the future of classical music?

 

HKAAA is grateful to have Dr. Adler, Professor and Music and History at DePauw University, coming all the way from the USA to be the host of our first Arts Social! event.

 

Dr. Adler’s professional background and experience encompasses music performance, scholarship, teaching, and administrative positions at some of the most esteemed music institutions in the USA, including New World Symphony and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra.

The fashion industry has long been associated to overconsumption and pollution. How could the fashion industry respond to climate change and the throw-away culture of fast fashion?

 

Two local fashion designers, Kay and Toby decided to address the issue head-on. The duo founded Fashion Clinic, advocates to choose well, buy smart and re-experience fashion. Through repairing, re-shaping and redesigning former beloved garments, they promote sustainability in the fashion industry.

 

At Arts Social!, Kay and Toby will share their journey of green fashion and they are ready to chit-chat with the participants who are interested in fashion, social responsibility and enterprise.

The arts industry, like all other industries, faces the same old problem of scarcity - we need to satisfy unlimited wants with very limited resources.

 

Therefore, utilising resources effectively is the key to the survival of any kind of arts organiation, regardless of its scale. Financial management is essential to setting realistic goals and achieving sustainable success of a company.

 

In fact, there are different parts and functions under the realm of Finance. For arts administrators, we are familiar with terms like budgeting, bookkeeping, accounting and auditing. But is there more we should know? Are we doing it the right way?

 

In the last Arts Soical! event (of 2019/20), HKAAA is happy to have Ricky Lam to be our host and he will talk us through about finance in the arts. Ricky leverages over 20 years’ of experience in the management of business, business development, sales and marketing, and finance and accounting throughout the Asia Pacific across multiple industries. In recent years, Ricky also works with Hong Kong Arts Development Council as the accessor for the audited accounts for their projects.

Are leaders born or made? Possibly some are natural, while the others are made. In the arts industry, it is impossible to find the perfect formula to operate an arts and cultural organization, especially since art can take so many different forms.

 

Since 2017, HKAAA has organised the “Meet the Arts Leaders” (MTAL) series. Over the past two years, we have invited numerous outstanding arts leaders as our speakers, including Ms Helen Ng, Mr K.B. Chan, and Mr Michael MacLeod.

 

This year, we are proud to invite a group of well-known speakers from diversed backgrounds to share their precious career experiences and their philosophies in arts administration. They will guide and inspire us to learn more on how art management is in Hong Kong, as well as the challenges of art managers in their particular art forms.

 

The talks will be held in October 2019, February and March 2020 respectively. This is a unique opportunity not to be missed!

 

Speakers including:

Meet the Arts Leaders 1  -  Mr. Alex Cheung, Senior Manager (Festivals), Leisure and Cultural Services Department REGISTER NOW!

Meet the Arts Leaders 2  -  Ms. Joycelyn Choi, General Manager, MOViE MOViE

Meet the Arts Leaders 3  -  Ms. Betty Mak, General Manager, Chung Ying Theatre

 

Welcome all arts administrators, artists and cultural entrepreneurs to join the talk!

HKAAA is very grateful to have Mr Alex Cheung from the Leisure and Cultural Services Department to be our first MTAL speaker. Alex has experience in a wide range of projects, including venue establishment, to arts festival production.

Government bodies usually position and operate differently than other arts companies. Mr Cheung will talk about how he leads his team to develop artistic programmes. He would also share the most interesting and challenging parts in his career, as well as how he sees himself as a seasoned arts administrator.
