The Hong Kong Arts Development Council (HKADC) published the consultation paper of the 2016 Nomination of Representatives of Arts Interests for the Hong Kong Arts Development Council (the nomination exercise) on 17 August. The one-month consultation period will be closed next Wednesday (16 September). Arts practitioners are requested to take note and give any views and comments before the deadline.
Established in 1995, the Hong Kong Arts Development Council is a statutory body set up to promote the development of arts in Hong Kong. Under section 3 of the Hong Kong Arts Development Council Ordinance (Chapter 472), the Chief Executive may appoint up to 10 persons nominated by the specified arts interests (Arts Administration, Arts Criticism, Arts Education, Chinese Opera (Xiqu), Dance, Drama, Film Arts, Literary Arts, Music and Visual Arts) to be members of the HKADC. The current term of office of the HKADC members will expire on 31 December 2016. Eligible individual arts workers and arts organisations may apply to participate in the nomination exercise to nominate representatives of the respective arts interests for the Chief Executive’s consideration of appointment as members of the HKADC for the next term.
To ensure a smooth running of the upcoming nomination exercise in 2016 and to further improve the nomination procedures, the HKADC has reviewed the nomination exercise in 2013 and has made some preliminary suggestions for the 2016 edition. The HKADC is now conducting a public consultation on these preliminary suggestions and will take into account the public views gathered in making its recommendation to the Home Affairs Bureau (HAB).
The one-month consultation period will be closed in one week. Please let us know your views by 16 September 2015 (Wednesday) using one of the following methods:-
