Traveling Venice during its annual Carnival definitely has all the captivating charm, but be prepared to jam in the narrow streets and squares in the week-long events. If you would like to escape from making ways through the packed crowd while experiencing the Venetian festival magic, you may want to plan your Venice trip during the low season. During my internship starting late October till early December I experienced two least touristy yet amazing festivals which are celebrated mostly by local Venetians:
Half of the internship has quickly passed. Besides the repetition of work and daily life, simultaneously there were some interesting and funny episodes which happened with the visitors, highlighted our days in the venue.
The HR department has arranged another internship program about the roles, events and development of the Performing Arts Department to all summer interns on Monday and invited the executive director of performing art department to share his experience and work to us.
In the past few weeks, I learnt many techniques, common practices and tools in Project Time Management (PTM) from the Project Management Team and I would like to share how the Project Managers normally implement PTM.
Another month in WKCDA, I was exposed to various intern activities and gained insights from different authorities in the Authority. I have a feel of transformation from an outsider to an insider. As the time goes on, I can vision the WKCD will be a pivotal cultural and arts hub of Hong Kong.
One of the most fascinating parts of WKCDA internship programme is having lots of activities to join. It is not merely an experience in work but also in art and culture. Through these activities, we the interns have a better understanding of the authority.
It is always a good idea to experience the nature. Luckily, in the Nursery Park, we can get a taste of different green scenery in any one of the four seasons of the year. And on my tree tour to the Nursery Park, fruits of mangoes, lychees, dragon fruits and pineapples caught my eye in summertime.
I believe everyone has a travel buddy, be it a person or a pet, or simply a best friend like Mr Bean’s Teddy. For me, my buddy is Gumgum, a tiny yellow bunny. (OK…slightly larger than tiny) Gumgum traveled extensively with me across continents and we have explored half of the globe together. Like any of our previous voyages, Gumgum has been tagged along after me during this 6-week long internship in Venice, Italy.
What is your impression of working in WKCDA? Full of art-lover? Or everyone working here has strong art knowledge? I would say joining WKCDA allows me to be a step near to arts and cultural industry and to be more curious about arts.
Working at West Kowloon Cultural District is not only about looking at the computer and document all day but also about experiencing the nice environment. The comfortable working environment at WKCD makes me feel comfortable.
After working in WKCD for a month, I started to understand the nursery park and the landscape work in the district. As a landscape architecture student, I was assigned tasks related to the current nursery park management and the future art park construction. Although they are not complicated tasks, I can gradually see the whole picture of the future cultural district.
Working in WKCDA is not only about sitting in the office, typing in front of the computer and having exhausted meetings, but also about engaging in the art and culture environment. When I receive an Tree Tour invitation, I accepted it without the least hesitation.
Time flies and it has been two months since my journey in WKCD began. Looking back, the most rewarding experience throughout my internship would be the collaboration with my silent partners- trees in the Nursery Park.
One week ago when I had my first day of summer internship at WKCDA, I was nervous yet excited about the interesting position. I was excited to embark on this incredible journey, but my lack of knowledge in finance industry and the fact that I was a latecomer had made me anxious about the internship.
This is the first month of my summer internship in West Kowloon Cultural Distract Authority. I really enjoy working in this authority because people here are always kind and helpful. Also, good working atmosphere is everywhere in the office.
As an intern in West Kowloon Cultural District Authority, it is always surprising to see how this vividly-growing organization takes the initiatives by introducing innovative projects which have never been accomplished throughout Hong Kong. Among different experiences, I can never forget the visit to M+ Pavilion on 21st July, 2016.
The West Kowloon Cultural District Authority is a responsible organisation in the sense that its contractors are required to have a high standard of performance in ensuring safety during construction
During the 2 months, I am involved in different projects and productions, and the most remarkable programmes are undoubtedly Freespace Happening and Xiqu Seminar
It is always funny when people get confused with the meaning because of the same pronunciations in Cantonese. But this encounter has given a strong feeling that Hong Kong people are generally not exposed to cultural activities, and more accurately, performing arts
