Cultural Management goes beyond the technical studies in management. It is an act of cultural mediation that touches on issues such as professional ethics, cultural rights, cultural identity, and the social, political interferences in cultural representation. In the last two decades, Arts Education is gaining prominence in both Singapore and Hong Kong. Cultural policies of these two global cities have continually stressed on the importance of arts education in instilling creativity, confidence, cultural awareness, and social cohesion. Arts Education is also deemed as an important process for building future arts audience. This sharing will explore the current state of Arts Education in these two cities, from the perspective of Cultural Management.
