Balancing the elements of a project – time, money, scope and people – is one of the biggest challenges faced by arts administrators. It is difficult to standardise each project into a formula. SEE stands for Share, Explore and Experience. To put things in perspective, different art groups will be invited to share their difficulties encountered and the solutions to tackle the issues with participants. At the same time, participants can also share their thoughts and opinions towards the performance or exhibition. The two-way communication allows participants to further explore and experience the performance/ artwork through the activity, with a final goal to enhance audience appreciation.
From festival to exhibition, ticketing management is an indispensable part of organizing successful arts and cultural activities.

At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage. An unforgettable theatre experience, ‘not to be missed’ (Chicago Tribune).
