“Local creative productions are not much interested by Hong Kong people”, said Lolita Hu Ching-Fang, author and Head of Kwang Hwa Information and Culture Centre (KHICC).

Speaking at a talk in Shue Yan University, she said locals prefer foreign’s art rather than supporting local artists; while there are many talented native artists, such as critic LEUNG Man-tao and film director Johnnie To Kei-fung.

“Shall we pay more attention to local artists?”, she urged Hong Kong people supports local cultural sector more.

Despite Hong Kong was given the name of a ‘cultural desert’, she said the core problem is Hong Kong people seldom attend cultural activities.

She explained that there are indeed many cultural activities in Hong Kong. She said that she was ‘exhausted to death’, because she had to attend many cultural events in the last two years.

Besides audiences’ preferences to choose foreign art, she thinks Hong Kong art sector is inclined to commercial-valued-operation. 

She said projects are motivated by the potential profits, therefore Hong Kong lacks of alternative and creative originals.

“Hong Kong’s rental prices are too expensive, there are not enough spaces for young artists to experiment and develop their original productions”, she explained.

The culture of an international city must be innovative and experimental, allowing youngsters to do ‘crazy’ things, she said.

She gave New York as an example, which there are various old buildings available for young artists to hold concerts and exhibitions, while Hong Kong only has mainstream and famous drama troupes.

She said, “The best reward from Taiwan University’s education is freedom”, independent thinking taught her not to be afraid.

She suggested young people to play freely and accept failures, because there are no failures, but joy in creativity.
