The Institute of Creativity of HKBU and the Arts Education Section of the Education Bureau (EDB) jointly organised the “Dialogue with Celebrities Series – Nurturing Students’ Well-being through the Arts: Event 9” last Friday (28 October). During the dialogue, Mr. Wilfred Wong, Chairman of the Council and the Court of HKBU and Chairman of the Hong Kong Arts Development Council, and famous movie director Mr. Stanley Kwan shared their views on the topic “Impacts of the Arts on the Development of Society, Human Living and the City”.

 

Mr. Wong encouraged participants to take part frequently in arts and cultural activities. He also highlighted the three essential aspects of nurturing creativity: one must have a dream and be persistent in achieving one’s goals; one has to see things from diverse perspectives so as to create something that is unique; and one should appreciate diversity and cross over to join others to create something new.


Mr. Kwan shared his views on how to nurture young directors in the film industry, and he hoped that their creative productions can showcase the characteristics of Hong Kong. He advised the younger generation to observe carefully and think critically, and to explore their own strengths and weaknesses by interacting with others.

 

The dialogue was moderated by Professor Dominic Lam, Fung Hon Chu Endowed Chair of Humanics of the Institute of Creativity of HKBU, and Dr. Vanessa Li, Senior Curriculum Development Officer (Visual Arts) of EDB. It was attended by academics and students of HKBU as well as teachers and students from local secondary schools.

 



浸大創意研究院和教育局藝術教育組上周五(十月二十八日)合辦「與名人對談系列──透過藝術培育學生的健康成長」(第九場),邀得身兼香港浸會大學校董會暨諮議會主席和香港藝術發展局主席的王英偉先生,與著名電影導演關錦鵬先生探討「藝術對社會、民生及城市發展的影響」。

王英偉先生鼓勵師生多參與藝術文化活動,並提出培養創意的三個要素,包括要堅持追求自己的夢想、要從不同的角度觀察以構思全新的意念、要欣賞不同文化並尋求跨界別合作。

 

關錦鵬先生則分享他對培育年輕導演的看法,並表示希望可欣賞他們製作有香港特色的電影。他寄語年青人應該仔細觀察和培養批判思考,對事情應持有自己的獨特觀點,並透過與人相處了解自己的長處和短處。


對談由浸大創意研究院馮漢柱基金全人教育教授林文傑教授和教育局高級課程發展主任(視覺藝術)李樂華博士主持,參加者包括浸大和多間中學的師生。
