Exploring the Journey of Performing Arts Museums and Archives

7 Mar 2024

Hong Kong stages over a thousand performances every year, but how can artists’ creativity leave a lasting impact once the shows are over? In addition to notes, photographs, manuscripts, scripts, sheet music, recordings, and reviews, there are also set design and model, props, and costume that hold cherished memories. These records serve as valuable cultural assets, yet they often fade from memory once the spotlight fades. The speaker has explored various performing arts museums and archives in Europe, where the preservation of performing arts artifacts offers valuable insights for Hong Kong. Beyond preservation, these experiences also involve activating these artifacts and collaboratively creating new cultural memories with new audiences.
