Building global network plays an essential role in achieving one’s artistic and career goals. Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association was very honoured to invite the overseas guest, Ms Mary Lou Aleskie, Director of Hopkins Center for the Arts at Dartmouth College and Chair of the International Society for the Performing Arts (ISPA), as the speaker for our talk earlier this week.
Ms Aleskie shared her unique experience in the arts administration field, as well as a brief introduction about ISPA. Ms Aleskie also showed us her thoughts about building up global networking and some interesting cases sharing with the audiences. She wished to explore more collaboration between the U.S. and Hong Kong in the near future.
