WEEKEND SHARING #1: ART, AUTONOMY, THERAPY
周末共享經驗 #1 - 藝術、自主與治療
In a city like Hong Kong, the public’s impressions on and knowledge of art diverge wildly. We either go ‘Art? What?’ or throw around impressive but unhelpful terms like ‘Introduction to Art Therapy and Art Administration’. To be certain, the variety of art events in the city make us both excited and confused.
The thing is, even for experienced art administrators, this divergence remains unavoidable. One man's trash is another man's treasure — themes like creativity, art, culture and their by-products cater to radically different people. Content producers rejoice as they see different opinions, understandings and interpretations flourish.
What should we do when facing so many options? Are we adopting the right methodology? Do we even know what we want? Speakers of this sharing session, Sheeta Ng and Jeannie Wu, believe that this divergence of opinions can serve as a wake up call for the industry — because at the core of what it means to be a professional lays the responsibility to share our experience and to further people’s understanding of art.
What’s included in this sharing section:
※ Relax: dig into your creative potentials
※ Listen: learn how each of us thinks about art and sees the industry
※ Share: open our vast imagination and feelings towards art, discuss how art advances us spiritually, even by understanding the misunderstanding, and investigate the value of arts and creative industries

Experienced Consultant with a Master of Arts focused in Literary & Cultural Studies from The University of Hong Kong, and a demonstrated history of working in the management consulting industry. Wu’s role as an art dealer at Vermillion Art Collections allowed Wu to gain insight in depth into contemporary art collecting and connect closely with artists, in particular helping renowned local artist ‘Frog King’ to organise his studio. She actively engaged in various large-scale projects as Project Officer at Hong Kong Arts Centre such as ‘Hong Kong Short Film: New Action Express’. Wu then further expanded and consolidated her network within the local art scene during her freelance work supporting the artist-run initiative Painting On and On.
