Abstract

Should culture be separated from politics? Could culture help to shape the cultural and political arenas in Hong Kong? Would West-Kowloon Cultural District enrich our cultural life? Moderated by Prof. Stephen Chu, this dialogue seeks to unlock the cultural politics in Hong Kong, and to examine how a cultural activist may help to facilitate the communication between public policy and creative industries.
