With the theme “Arts in the New World”, the ADC organised the 2nd edition of the International Arts Leadership Roundtable from 29 February to 1 March 2016. The Roundtable had gathered around 20 international and local arts leaders from various arts councils and institutions to discuss the prevailing key arts topics and trends in Hong Kong and around the globe, to exchange ideas on related policies and measures, and to propose strategies to meet future challenges. The conference was also a platform for arts leaders in Hong Kong to engage in in-depth exchanges with overseas speakers and acknowledge the latest development of the arts and culture on the global level.

Speakers were invited to discuss on the following three plenary topics on the first day of the conference: “The Development of Cultural Ecology”, “The Change of Arts Spaces” and “New Thinking for International Exchange”. On the second day, the closing discussion was held with local arts leaders invited to the stage for deeper discussions in response to Hong Kong’s scenario.
