As the arts and cultural scene in Hong Kong proliferates, it has never been an easy journey for many local practitioners in the field. No matter whether you are an artist, an art administrator, or a representative from an art initiative/non-profit organisation, one needs to pass through many hurdles in order to see the fruits ripen. From content creation, seeking resources, to planning and execution of cultural events, as well as maintaining different kinds of spaces/institutions/organisations, how do we survive for the identities and roles we chose to take for ourselves? What are our priorities and values?
HART has the pleasure to be able to invite three insiders of the field to share with us their own stories and lessons learnt. Speakers of the evening include:
Jaime Chong, independent artist in Hong Kong, currently participant of our Social Studio project (Hausian)
Susi Law, cultural engineer of Art & Cultural Outreach, also an artist and curator
Jeannie Wu, director of HART Collective, also director of Hong Kong Archives Society, arts advisor
Date: July 19, 2019 (Friday)
Venue: HART Haus, 3/F, Cheung Hing Industrial Building, 12P Smithfield, Kennedy Town, Hong Kong
