Asia Art Archive hosts a sharing session on arts-related programmes offered by local universities and tertiary institutes to support senior secondary school students as they pursue further studies. The sharing session includes brief introductions of available courses at each institute and comparisons between them. It expands students’ understanding of arts-related studies, including studio practices, art history, art administration, and management. It also provides opportunities for young audiences to develop, complicate, and challenge their interest in arts, and to rethink the social role of contemporary art. Small group discussions will be held for more specific questions.

The sharing session is led by AAA university volunteers from the following institutes:

  • Hong Kong Baptist University (Visual Arts)
  • Hong Kong Design Institute (Visual Communication Design)
  • Lingnan University (Visual Studies)
  • The Chinese University of Hong Kong (Cultural Management, Fine Arts)
  • The City University of Hong Kong (Creative Media)
  • The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (Film)
  • The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (Visual Communications Design, Advertising Design)
  • The University of Hong Kong (Fine Arts, Global Creative Industries)

The programme is free of charge. Schools are welcome to register for their students in groups.

My Art Future seeks to expand students’ understanding of tertiary art, architecture, cultural studies, and design programmes available in Hong Kong, as well as facilitating their academic planning. Through interactive peer-led activities, it provides opportunities for young audiences to develop, complicate, and challenge their interest in the arts, and to rethink the social role of contemporary art.

My Art Future: Salon for Young Adults is a series of salon-style discussions that aims to support tertiary education students, recent graduates, and young professionals with an interest in art as they consider pursuing a future in the field.
