2014 Symposium - Cultural Landmark & Its Communities
Panel Discussion: Curating and Public Connection
Creative forces find their own way. As performing arts evolve and escape from conventional theatre spaces, curating has become a mean of shaping cities and re-connecting the public. How to carpet the city with creativity and bring arts to non-arts audiences in different spaces? How to intervene public space with arts?
Curators from Czech Republic, Australia, Taiwan, and Hong Kong share their insights on the relation between curating and public connection.
