Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association has invited experts to lead an exclusive tour at a printing company and they are ready to answer all the questions from art administrators.

 

Local art administrators always face the issue of heavy workload with limited resources. They might take on a few different roles and handle major duties without any proper training.

We embrace an open forum with free discussions. Special guests will be invited to share their views and experience based on the topic.


The topic of the coming ‘Arty Hour@HKAAA’ is “Summer Cultural Traveling in Europe”. Each summer, many art lovers like to go to Europe especially for international art festivals and exhibitions, such as La Biennale di Venezia, Berliner Theatertreffen, Edinburgh International Festival and Edinburgh Festival Fringe. What new insights could people learn from visiting and participating these festivals? How would international cultural events influence the art scene of Hong Kong?


We are glad to have Mr William Chan, Performing Art Critic and Project Manager at the International Association of Theatre Critics (Hong Kong), Mr Law Kwok-ho, Chairman of Hong Kong Association of Theatre Technicians and Scenographers, Producer of PQ2015 Hong Kong Booth and Mr Alan Tang, Founder of Drama Lab and Black Curtain Theatre Company, a new drama group that aims for re-interpretation of classic theatre, to talk about their experience in Holland Festival, International Exhibition of Scenography and Theatre and Edinburgh Festival respectively. Being one of the art festivals with longest history, Holland Festival is well-known for its innovative and avant-garde programmes. William's trip is supported by the Arts Development Fund of the Home Affairs Bureau, the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

‘Arty Hour@HKAAA’ is a causal occasion for thoughts to collide and wild ideas to flow. We would like to invite all fellow arts practitioners and anyone with an interest in arts & culture to join the gathering.

2015 Cultural Leadership Summit House Programme:
House Programme Part 1
House Programme Part 2

 

Box office, public funding and private donations/sponsorships represent the 3 financial lifelines to any performing arts organization or artist. Hong Kong, with its own unique course of arts development, has seen its arts industry focused on the first two legs until recent years when the rapid development of the arts and culture is outpacing the increases in public funding and box office revenue.  More focus, therefore, has been given to raising private funds by organizations of all sizes from WKCDA to cultural SMEs in order to cater to their own artistic and financial needs and sustain their growths.

 

Cultural Leadership Summit is HKAAA’s annual major event. With different themes every year, the association pursues excellence and professionalism in the practice of arts administrators.  2015 marks the 30th Anniversary of the HKAAA. With the theme “Raising for our Future: Arts Funding and Philanthropy in Hong Kong”, this year’s Cultural Leadership Summit aims to develop an enterprising culture in which the artistic visions of the organization or individual is placed at the very heart of their business model and ethos in order to attract the highest level of support from private giving and businesses.

 

The two-day symposium, with talks, workshops, round-table discussions and networking sessions, will focus on developing the skills of individuals and organizations seeking to fundraise from the private sector, individual donors as well as their own boards through knowledge-exchange, resources and thought leadership. To help further understand the issues and identify the way forward for arts practitioners operating within Hong Kong’s unique environment, the Summit will bring together some of the best minds in the practice of fundraising for the arts and culture from the city and overseas. The Funders / Collaborators Platform is a new initiative this year to connect arts groups and potential funders and collaborators. 

 

The Summit will benefit CEOs, trustees of arts organizations big and small, as well as anyone who is tasked with raising funds for the future of their arts.

Introduction

 

Let’s Arty Hour!

 

With the support provided by the Arts Capacity Development Funding Scheme (ACDFS) of the Home Affairs Bureau, the Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association (HKAAA) initiates the Fellowships for Arts Management Experience (FAME) Programme. The second FAME programme was held in 2014-15, the 6 participants had the opportunity to work with renowned arts organizations in Australia, Poland, Taiwan and the United Kingdom respectively during their 10 to 12 weeks internship. Through observation and participation, the participants not only had a glimpse of the differences between Hong Kong and overseas arts groups, but also learnt about the programming and management practices of our foreign counterparts. Our FAME fellows have now successfully completed the internship programme. HKAAA have invited the 6 participants to join the quarterly Arty Hour@HKAAA to share their experience, hoping to broaden local arts administrators’ horizons and inspiring minds, with the ultimate goal of benefitting our local arts and cultural scene.
 
The topic of the second Arty Hour@HKAAA is “Overseas Arts Management Experience”. We have invited the 6 fellows who have internship attachment in English Touring Theatre, Nostalgia Festival Poznan, Krakow Festival Office, Adelaide Festival Centre, Sydney Theatre Company and Cloud Gate Dance Theatre respectively to share their experience of working with overseas arts organizations on daily operation, event coordination and execution in the coming Arty Hour@HKAAA.
 
Arty Hour@HKAAA is a causal occasion for thoughts to collide and wild ideas to flow. We would like to invite all fellow arts practitioners and anyone with an interest in arts & culture to join the gathering.
 
Come, share your views, and experience with us!
