HKAAA Updates
 
“Arts Administrator 101” Series ╴Community Arts Engagement in Design Thinking
Presented by: Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association
Co-organizer: Hong Kong Design Centre
 
Design Thinking is a process of creative problem solving, with an emphasis to focus on the people they are creating for. Design thinking has been increasingly embraced by the world of business, social creative industry and education over the last decades. If the model is adaptable into different business, can we use it to design our community arts programme?
 
HKAAA is happy to have Ms. Sam Lam, Director of Business Development and Projects from Hong Kong Design Centre (HKDC), to kick off our 2019/20 “Arts Administrators 101 Series”. Sam will lead the workshop and go through the design thinking process with the participants, together exploring the possibilities of community arts.
 
Sam has over 18 years of experience in public relations, media, branding and curating and managing arts and cultural projects. Since joining HKDC in 2014, Sam mainly focus working on the flagship programmes of HKDC, including #ddHK, city and community programmes of Business of Design Week (BODW).

【活動回顧】鄺為立與鍾小梅對談
(Only Chinese version is available)
 
鄺為立先生自動當選成為本屆香港藝術發展局「藝術行政」範疇代表, 為了讓同行了解其參選理念,本會特意邀請鄺為立先生與上屆「藝術行政」範疇代表鍾小梅女士舉辦一場對談會,並於星期一順利舉行。
 
在對談會上,鄺先生先向在場參加者表述參選目的,表示希望能協助調控香港文化市場。鄺先生將香港藝術市場比喻為生態系統,認為需要有多元化及多樣化的藝術作品。同時,亦強調文化交流的重要性。
 
鍾小梅女士向鄺先生提及外界詬病藝發局資源不足的問題,鄺先生認為不應該只著眼於藝發局的有限資源,並指出可透過機構之間的合作,將資源再整合,發展不同可能性。在問答環節中,參加者提及行業工會化的趨勢,並詢問其看法。鄺先生表示,在現階段難以判斷工會化是否對行業整體有裨益,認為香港表演藝術行業依賴資助生存,有可能出現不利行業發展的影響。但他同意應該為行業人士爭取權益,開啟對話平台,並期待有更多不同類型的工會出現。
 
最後,亦有參加者詢問鄺先生,在三年任期內的具體目標,或著手解決的問題。鄺先生坦然表示沒有具體議程,但他會透過進行不同研究,收集數據,有策略地推動藝術政策倡議工作。
 
本會再次感謝鄺為立先生及鍾小梅女士抽空與我們舉辦對談會,讓同行了解新一任「藝術行政」範疇代表的政綱,以及對香港藝術行業發展的理想。

Two Strange Tales From A Chinese Studio
This concert presents two beautiful fables from Liaozhai (Strange Tales from a Chinese Studio) to illustrate the transience and impermanence of life.
In the first story, the female ghost Nie Xiaoqian, who is coerced into harming people by a demon, meets the scholar Ning Caichen. Moved by his integrity, she decides to help him escape and takes the plunge into forbidden love.
In the second story, the handsome Ma Ji enters Raksha Country by mistake. He puts on face makeup to survive the country’s reversed standards of beauty, but ends up turning his own morals upside down.
