Speaker:

Dennis Wu, Associate Marketing Director, Hong Kong Arts Festival

 

Data helps us make better, smarter decisions in marketing and in business as well as in arts development. Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association (HKAAA) was very honoured to invite Associate Marketing Director of Hong Kong Arts Festival, Mr Dennis Wu, as the guest speaker for the “Data-driven Digital Marketing in the perspective of and for Arts Administrator”.
 
Mr Wu shared his overview on data-driven marketing and introduced the key concepts of data gathering and analysis such as Marketing Funnel. Digital marketing refers to advertising delivered through digital channels such as search engines, websites, social media, email, and mobile apps, which helps users to gather the information from target audiences. Wu wishes all arts administrators and younger generations will be inspired by his sharing.

After the deluge is a homecoming project of artist Kingsley Ng in response to his earlier solo at OzAsia Festival: in close proximity to the desert, Adelaide is among the driest regions in Australia; on the other side of the Earth, Hong Kong is also affected by climate change and heavy rains are becoming more and more frequent. Between these two poles of water imbalance, how do we reflect on the disequilibrium triggered by modern development?

 

Departing from this macroscopic question, after the deluge brings the audience to a monumental facility built innovatively to tackle urban floods. The work transforms this stronghold into a space for contemplation. Following the cyclical footsteps of a drop of water, the work invites the audience to retrace a path of urban development, and probe into what is often unseen.

 

Tai Hang Tung Stormwater Storage Tank is normally not open to the public. With great support from the Drainage Services Department, this underground space will unprecedentedly become the locale of a site-specific work of art, and will be open for guided tours during the exhibition period.

 

Kingsley Ng, the renowned Media Artist will share his passions, creativity experience, works with the ephemeral and intangible, performed in light, sound, space and time.

Special Guest

Mr Kingsley Ng, Media Artist / Assistant Professor, HKBU Academy of Visual Arts

 

After the deluge were parts of the Jockey Club's New Arts Power programme. Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association was very honoured to invite the Local Interdisciplinary Artist - Kingsley Ng Siu-king to be the guest speaker on this tour.
 
With great support from the Drainage Services Department, this Site-specific Art can be installed in Tai Hang Tung Stormwater Storage Tank. Before the tour started, Ng shared his original intention and preparation process with us. He also brought up the possibilities of installing multimedia arts in Hong Kong. Throughout this installation, Ng wishes the public would be aware of those unknown heroes who continue working on the flood control in Hong Kong.
 
The whole tour lasts for an hour long. Participants and staff experienced the installation after Ng's sharing. It was a truly unique experience.
