Cultural Masseur: Talking Heads
A cross-disciplinary artistic experience
”Cultural Masseur: Talking Heads” will present different cross-disciplinary sessions to break the walls between art and other disciplines.
All things on earth are intertwined in one way or another. Starting from May this year, “Cultural Masseur: Talking Heads” initiates different inter-disciplinary sessions with various disciplines ranging from neuroscience, technology, space, mindfulness, perceptual psychology, etc. at the Hong Kong Arts Centre. Each programme features a local or overseas artist, consists of a thematic talk and a experiential showcase that opens to the public. A chill-chat salon will be followed in inviting selected guests, experts and professionals from various disciplines in engaging creative dialogues with each other. All general public can enjoy the dialogues with expert respondents via our online channel.
Cultural Masseurs Programme Overview
Body massage stimulates circulation, and massage of the mind stimulates the circulation of ideas, particularly creative ones. “Cultural masseurs” connect the dots in the cultural scene, helping to uncover the beauty in our daily lives, as well as respond to daily lives with arts. The project, targeted at young people, adults, and early retirees, brings arts into lives through an array of carefully curated programmes: guided tours, talks, workshops, internship and apprenticeship, as well as the process of art-making. These programmes may enlighten the participants to see the world in an artful way, and they will in turn enlighten others as active audience through sharing of what they know about the arts, and ultimately becoming “cultural masseurs” themselves. Only through connecting arts and everyday living can arts thrive in a city and culture be passed on.
