Creative Education Forums


Local and overseas professionals and scholars on creative education will be invited as guest speakers for forums with creative education as the topic, and they will answer questions and provide opinions to trainees of “Creative Playground” attending the talks. Creative Education Forums present a platform for experts, scholars, the public and young people, who would will be future forces of cultural development in Hong Kong, to develop some multi-directional, interactive and experimental dialogues so they could have an opportunity to explore the issue of “discovering oneself and discovering each other” by means of a cross-boundaries learning experience of theatre creation, where they can learn from each other and discuss the future development of education, arts and culture.
