As the Hong Kong Arts Development Council (ADC) has begun its new term for 2011-13, all members will be meeting the readers in this issue for the first time. They will present their new vision for the ADC’s future, and their hopes for the Hong Kong’s artistic and cultural community.
The new issue features an exclusive interview with the ADC’s new Chairman, Mr Wilfred Wong, who tells us how he will draw on his management experience and vision to promote the development of local arts.
Outside Hong Kong, we have the Chief Executive Officer of The Absolutely Fabulous Theatre Connection, Ms Lynn Yau, a recipient of the Hong Kong Scholarship on the Clore Leadership Programme, to give us a glimpse of her new training experience in the United Kingdom.
In addition, two new columns make their debut in this issue. “The AAiSS Funfair” column reports the latest events and activities of the Arts Ambassadors-in-School Scheme. Another new column is “Offstage”, in which a particular arts practitioner will be invited to share his or her life and work experiences and encounters with the readers in every issue.
