Self Led Peer Art Discussions PAD

  • Jul 11, 2012 · 7:15 PM

Are you interested in discussing and developing ideas about art with other artists or art enthusiasts? Please join us for an evening of talking, thinking and sharing art ideas, frustrations and joys in a supportive, constructive and nurturing environment. We are just starting out as a group and welcome anyone with interest in the arts to join us.

Members expectations of the discussions include

‘to build up a community of fellow artists in order to break the isolation we are living in.’
‘to share ideas around art and design in a stimulating and nurturing group - current focus is around objects and their function in our lives.’

‘a supportive, constructive group where ideas, thoughts and experiences can be shared.’

‘inspiring to meet with working artists and people interested in all forms of art/craft and design.’

Current themes include

' The Architecture of Art Market'.
How to succeed: Art Shows and Festivals
Fear of creating, selling, buying or collecting art
Ways to understand art
Identifying someone to share a studio with: practical issues
Curate an exhibition yourself or ask a curator?
Where to sell work in Hong Kong
Art and craft: how and where to market in HK
An audience for your work
How important are narratives in art
Art as object
Where and how should art be displayed?
Additionally in the group some members maybe interested in giving and receiving supportive comments and encouragement on their art or art practice?

The next session is on Wednesday 11th July at 7.15 for a 7.30 start so please let me know any topics you are interested in, including the ones mentioned above early in July so I can make up an agenda and let everyone know the topics and any relevant articles or web addresses in advance of the 11th. Thanks.

Please email me direct at [masked] to show your interest. Let me know what your interests are and I will send you the address for the meeting and any relevant articles. Please send me your email address when you reply. Thanks

    Yes good idea we did talk about that - people could share in the group some of their art or a favorite piece of art if they want to.
