Creative Meeting Point: Hong Kong x Barcelona
Creative Meeting Point: Hong Kong x Barcelona, two-week artist residency exchange starting May 2018, supports artistic research and development. Following two successful collaborations with Finland and Australia launched in November 2016 and March 2017, the West Kowloon Cultural Authority (WKCDA) Performing Arts Department announces a third residency exchange programme, Creative Meeting Point: Hong Kong x Barcelona in collaboration with Barcelona, Spain’s municipal performing arts venue Mercat de les Flors. Spanning three years, the collaboration builds on the international dance network established at WKCDA and cultivates global arts leaders by enhancing cultural exchange and creating international access for local art communities. To deepen artistic conversations between art practitioners in both cities, this initiative earmarks resources for residencies, exchange projects, research, work-in-development showcases, workshops, forums and more.
At the centre of Creative Meeting Point: Hong Kong x Barcelona is a series of two-week residency exchanges for four artists. WKCDA selected the pair of artists from Hong Kong and Mercat de les Flors chose the artists from Spain. The Hong Kong artists travel to Barcelona in May 2018 for two weeks of exploration, research, and exchange. In late 2018 / early 2019, the Spanish artists will come to Hong Kong. Hong Kong dance artists Mao Wei and Wong Pik Kei took part in the first two-week exchange in Barcelona.
