The Institute of Creativity of HKBU recently joined the Education Bureau and the Hong Kong Arts Development Council in launching a project entitled Arts Buddies with the aim to establish an interactive learning community for university and secondary school students. The project will enhance students’ knowledge of and skills in art appreciation and art promotion and cultivate a positive attitude to serving the community through art activities.

Arts Buddies was officially launched at a ceremony today (16 July). Three veteran professionals from the arts and culture field were invited to speak at a seminar on “Arts for the Future of Hong Kong”. They were Mr. Teddy Robin, movie director, composer and singer; Ms. Xiao Si (also known as Professor Lo Wai-luen), writer and Director of the Centre for Hong Kong Cultural Studies, The Chinese University of Hong Kong; and Professor Bernard Lim, Professor of the School of Architecture, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. 

The three speakers shared their insights on the arts, including their belief that those who love and are interested in art would enjoy the creative process involved in devoting themselves to the arts. In addition, the speakers said art is not independent from daily life but closely connected to it. It will take time for the arts to come alive and it is most important for people to appreciate art leisurely and from the heart in order to experience and enjoy its beauty. 

Dr. Vanessa Li, Senior Curriculum Development Officer (Visual Arts), Education Bureau; Professor Dominic Lam, Fung Hon Chu Endowed Chair of Humanics, Institute of Creativity, HKBU; and Dr. Lo Wai-luk, Associate Professor, Academy of Film, School of Communication, HKBU, served as moderators. 

As part of the year-long project, 23 HKBU students will serve as Arts Mentors to 90 Arts Ambassadors from secondary schools. Under the leadership of the Arts Mentors, the Arts Ambassadors will take part in a series of seminars and workshops and visit art exhibitions, thereby strengthening the students’ theoretical foundation and ability to appreciate art as well as promoting art education. In addition, the Arts Ambassadors will be able to gain leadership and social service experience by guiding their peers to visit other art exhibitions. In the final stage of the project, both the Arts Mentors and Ambassadors will co-organise a finale exhibition, giving them the opportunity to display and introduce their artwork to the public. To encourage active participation, The Best Art Guide awards will be presented to the Ambassadors who were outstanding participants throughout the project.



浸大創意研究院最近與教育局和香港藝術發展局合辦一項名為「藝術同行」計劃,目的是透過建立一個互動的學習社群,藉此提升中學生和大學生在藝術欣賞和藝術推廣方面的知識和技巧,同時亦鼓勵他們透過參與藝術活動,培養出為他人服務的正確態度和精神。

「藝術同行」計劃於今日(七月十六日)舉行啟動禮,並邀得三位資深藝術文化工作者,包括電影導演、作曲家兼歌手泰迪羅賓先生、作家及香港中文大學香港文學研究中心主任小思(盧瑋鑾教授)和香港中文大學建築學院教授林雲峰教授主講公開座談會,暢談「藝術與藝術教育」。

三位嘉賓於講座上分享了個人對藝術的看法和感受,他們異口同聲表示,只要是喜歡藝術,對藝術產生興趣,自然能夠投入和享受當中的創作過程。他們亦認為,藝術並不是單一的項目,是與日常生活息息相關、環環緊扣的,而且藝術是需要時間蘊釀和浸淫,最重要是人們懂得由心出發去觀賞藝術,自然能慢慢感受和細味當中的美。

主持講座的分別是教育局高級課程發展主任(視覺藝術)李樂華博士、浸大創意研究院馮漢柱基金全人教育教授林文傑教授和傳理學院電影學院副教授盧偉力博士。

整個「藝術同行」計劃為期一年,透過二十三位浸大學生擔任指導師,分組帶領九十位中學校園藝術大使參與一系列的公開座談會和工作坊,以及參觀藝術展覽,藉此加強同學們在藝術欣賞和藝術教育推廣方面的知識和實踐。此外,中學校園藝術大使其後亦可透過帶領同學朋友參觀其他藝術展覽,從而提升他們的領導能力和社會服務經驗。在計劃的最後階段,指導師與校園藝術大使並會聯合策劃及舉辦一個結業展覽,向公眾人士展示和介紹自己的個人作品,計劃並會頒發「最佳藝術指導員」獎項予表現傑出的中學校園藝術大使以示鼓勵。
