(Thanks so much for your support! “ The New Royal Shakespeare Theatre - Designing a modern theatre from inside out ” is full.)

 

Co-presented by West Kowloon Cultural District Authority (WKCDA) and Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association (HKAAA), in collaboration with Hong Kong Association of Theatre Technician and Sceongraphers 

 

Royal Shakespeare Theatre has been the home of the Royal Shakespeare Company since it was originally opened in 1932. It has always been a challenge for the directors trying to adapt Shakespeare’s plays, which were written to be performed in a limited space shared by actors and audience, to an expanded auditorium. Some seats were as far as 27 meters away which were too distanced for the audience to see the actors’ expressions.

 

To improve the audiences’ experience has been the main focus for the Royal Shakespeare Theatre redevelopment project. The new theatre formally reopened in 2011 with new auditorium seats 1040 people. The new thrust stage which is adjustable in shape and size has created a more intimate atmosphere. The distance of the audience from the stage has reduced to 15 meters only. Lights, acoustics and sightline have also been improved.

 

Mr. Simon Harper was the Deputy Project Director of Royal Shakespeare Theatre to oversee the renovation project. Duties include creating and overseeing the client brief, appointing the design team, managing stakeholder and public consultations, overseeing budget and programme setting, and liaising with funding bodies.

 

A workshop co-presented by the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority and the Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association, in collaboration with Hong Kong Association of Theatre Technician and Scenographers, Simon will talk about how to get a brief right, identifying the

right equipment, addressing concerns raised by the client and the obstacles, challenges of the project.

Looking for funding to realize a creative idea?  Any alternative to source funding besides traditional ways of funding?

 

In late August, one of the leading international practitioners of performance art, Marina Abramović successfully raised US$661,454 from 4,765 contributors to realize her ambitious project - Marina Abramović Institute.  The funds were raised through Kickstarter, the world’s leading online crowdfunding platform.  Meanwhile, local designer Syrus Kwan successfully raised HK$27,700 in May through an online crowdfunding platform, FringeBacker, for a solo exhibition of illustrations he created.

 

Crowdfunding is a new, accessible funding model and there were over 450 crowdfunding platforms worldwide in 2012*.  The platform is rather new to the arts and cultural sector in Hong Kong.  Having said that, there are some recent creative projects successfully funded by crowdfunding in Hong Kong.

 

What is Crowdfunding?  How does it work?  Besides raising funds, how can you achieve more through Crowdfunding platform?

 

Presented by HKAAA, this workshop is targeted for anyone who is looking for funding to realize their creative idea and learn how to use online crowdfunding platform to raise funds and connect with their potential supporters.  If you would like to make a contribution to a sustainable arts and cultural development in Hong Kong, you are also welcome to join to explore how crowdfunding platform works.

中國戲曲是世界三大古老戲劇體系中唯一存活至今的藝術,亦為中國文化及華文地區中,極為重要的藝術資產之一。近年來,香港從民間到政府,都對傳統戲曲很支持,亦具備多項優越條件,讓香港成為對外展示中國戲曲藝術的平台。

 

隨著西九文化區首個動工的戲曲中心擬定於2016年底落成,以及多個戲曲場地,包括新光戲院、油麻地戲院,以及高山劇場等全面投入使用,一年一度的「中國戲曲節」及「西九大戲棚」,促使戲曲藝術得以在香港蓬勃發展。

 

八和會館、演藝學院以至大學方面正加緊培訓青年演員,不同演藝團體亦致力於戲曲觀眾的培養。除此之外,針對戲曲表演節目策劃及相關管理的藝術行政培訓,實不容忽視。

 

自2010年開始,康樂及文化事務署主辦的「中國戲曲節」,每年6月至8月均為大家帶來一些珍貴的中國劇種,把中國戲曲的各個劇種慢慢引入香港,介紹給觀眾。同時,更使得不僅是京崑大戲,一些不為人知、甚至瀕臨失傳的地方戲,也得到扶持。過去四屆的「中國戲曲節」,均贏得本地及國際讚譽。

 

此工作坊專為期望了解戲曲表演節目策劃的人士而設,講者為康樂及文化事務署高級經理(戲劇及戲曲)李明珍女士。她將會講解策劃戲曲節目的須知細節及所面對的挑戰,亦會分享所涉及之相關事務(如製作、推廣與行政管理等等),如何製作具創意及質素的戲曲節目。內容包括:

  • 節目的選擇
  • 策劃節目需注意的要點
  • 從策劃到展演階段的過程及製作日程
  • 個案分析

 

講者: 康樂及文化事務署高級經理(戲劇及戲曲)李明珍女士

Co-organized by West Kowloon Cultural District Authority (WKCDA) and Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association (HKAAA)

 

For a long time, for the theatre community in the UK, the challenge of touring which had been about artists producing more work and touring more. However the touring model has taken a dynamic shift away from financial drivers in recent years. Some companies started to explore the digital platform to strengthen the relationship between artists, venues and audience, empowering the economic, artistic and organizational development of the company. Supporting artists and building audiences become the new goals which pave way to meet the third ambition: creating resilience.

 

A workshop co-presented by the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority and the Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association, Ms. Rachel Tackley, Director of English Touring Theatre, will talk about what is the trend of touring in UK - how has it changed over the years and what lies in its future?

 

She will also share her insights on how she made English Touring Theatre (ETT) into a leading touring theatre company as well as the first producer-led touring company in UK since her taking over of its directorship in 2008. What are the key issues to be considered when touring locally in UK and across the world? How does a touring theatre company make itself viable?

Throughout the world, the creative and cultural sector is growing in complexity and importance. The sector has a unique and vital socio-economic and political role to play in a world facing rapid environmental, social and economic change. With more than half of the global population and some of the fastest developing countries in the world, these changes are particularly visible in Asia. 

It is crucial that the future leaders and innovators of the creative and cultural sector develop ideas, skills and networks to drive the sector forward and ensure its relevance to the changing and culturally diverse societies around them. They are cultural entrepreneurs and change agents who leverage cultural knowledge and innovation to create social, economic and political value. 

You are invited to join cultural leaders from Asia and the UK to discuss how the value of culture is perceived in Asia, what the immediate challenges there are for the cultural sector in the region, and how cultural leadership can be nurtured locally. 

This forum is organized by The Advanced Cultural Leadership Programme (ACLP) at The University of Hong Kong and The British Council and takes place in the Asia Society in HK.

Entrepreneurship traditionally describes the creation of new business ventures as an observable phenomenon. Today, entrepreneurship has become a synonym for progressive thought and refers generally to the process of creating something new (with value) and assuming the risks and rewards.

 

The 2013 Cultural Leadership Summit will focus on the theme Arts Entrepreneurship – What  it Takes and How it Works, inviting international, regional and local cultural leaders to come together and examine how the concept of entrepreneurship can be applied in the formation and operation of successful commercial arts enterprises, as well as in the sustainable development of not-for-profit arts organizations through developing new audiences, new format of productions, new modes of operation and new sources of income.  Special attention will also be given to the current development of arts entrepreneurship in Chinese-speaking territories. This theme is especially relevant to arts organizations as the learning of entrepreneurship will better equip them to thrive and to face the increasing competition over scarce resources (audiences and funding support) in the coming years.

Co-organised by Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association (HKAAA) and British Council

 

This session aims to provide participants with thinking resources designed to help them reflect on and improve their work with young people, drawn from contemporary debates. It will also offer examples of arts education practice from the UK that might inspire or provoke new ideas for their ways of working.

 

The core reflective question of ‘why do you do what you do?’ will be explored through a discussion of  values, the image of the child, the possible aims of arts education work, thoughts on how learning happens and what it might involve to aim for excellence.

 

This will be illustrated by examples and case studies drawn from work of the Creative Partnerships programme in Birmingham, The Royal Shakespeare Company and The Play House Theatre in Education Company amongst others.

 

Rob looks forward to conversation and discussion with fellow arts educators after the presentation.

(Thanks so much for your support! The workshop is full.)

 

Co-organized by West Kowloon Cultural District Authority (WKCDA) and Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association (HKAAA)

 

In collaboration with WKCDA, Australian curator Virginia Hyam (former director of Melbourne Fringe Festival and former Head of Contemporary Culture programming at Sydney Opera House) will share her experience of curating programs and producing events, which have successfully engaged audiences, from indoor performances and festivals to large-scale outdoor events. Examples will be drawn from Sydney Opera House, Melbourne Fringe, Parramasala Festival and her work in the youth arts sector, as well as sighted examples from across the world. Coming from the perspective of a producer/ curator rather than a marketer, she will share insights of building a brand, involving community and capturing the attention of audiences along the way, while supporting the profile of emerging artists.
