Public Forum – Cultural Leadership: The Asian Way?

26 Julio 2013, Hong Kong SAR, China

Throughout the world, the creative and cultural sector is growing in complexity and importance. The sector has a unique and vital socio-economic and political role to play in a world facing rapid environmental, social and economic change. With more than half of the global population and some of the fastest developing countries in the world, these changes are particularly visible in Asia.

It is crucial that the future leaders and innovators of the creative and cultural sector develop ideas, skills and networks to drive the sector forward and ensure its relevance to the changing and culturally diverse societies around them. They are cultural entrepreneurs and change agents who leverage cultural knowledge and innovation to create social, economic and political value.

You are invited to join cultural leaders from Asia and the UK to discuss how the value of culture is perceived in Asia, what the immediate challenges there are for the cultural sector in the region, and how cultural leadership can be nurtured locally.

This forum is organized by The Advanced Cultural Leadership Programme (ACLP) at The University of Hong Kong and The British Council and takes place in the Asia Society in HK.

**Early-bird offer: HK$880 (registration on or before 12 July 2013)
