Celebrate like a Venetian!

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:

西九初印象

西九文化區在數個月前對我來說還只是香港市區中一處休憩之所,聽說過這裡的日落很美,聽說過這裡會成為香港一處新地標,卻沒想到一個月前我成了這裡的實習生。

苗圃公園的園境工作

很多人並不了解一個園境建築師的工作內容,其實不少建築物以外的地方,包括大部分的公共空間,都是園境建築師設計和規劃的場地。

「廣東快車」 當代藝術的保存及保育

M+展亭現正進行名為「廣東快車」的展覽,這是一個關於90年代珠三角地區的當代藝術展覽。M+作為一所當代藝術博物館,觀眾理所當然會認為內裡的展品都是新的,沒有想到其實「廣東快車」中大部份作品都經過修復員修復才可以在M+展亭重新展出。

From an outsider to an insider

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.

轉眼間,我已在西九工作兩個月了。說到這兩個月最經常接觸到的東西,竟是報紙。作為傳訊及公共事務處的實習生,我需要將有關西九的報導剪輯下落,作為記錄。這個過程令我快速熟習了西九的各項議題,進一步加深了我對西九的了解。

Joining the M+ Rover Community Session

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.

Tree Tour to Nursery Park

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.

Palazzo Gumgum (Homage to all Venice Biennale Exhibition Interns)

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.

The art and cultural promoter in the cultural desert

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 in the park

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.

Not a typical office work

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.

My Experience at WKCDA

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.
