This is a video recording of a talk at Asia Art Archive on 14 October 2010 organized by DOXA, a London-based international research collective. For the conversation at AAA, DOXA seeks to interlink ideas and developments in the UK with recent developments in Hong Kong to raise questions about how the city can 're-imagine culture' for itself. What is the current state of the arts in the UK amidst a major economic recession? How relevant now is their highly celebrated 'creative economy' as a model for culture? What can Hong Kong learn as it continues to be influenced by the UK to become a 'world class city' and as Graham Sheffield of the Barbican Centre in London is appointed Chief Executive of the West Kowloon Cultural District?

Speakers include William Wong, cultural consultant and Clore Leadership Fellow; Ashley Wong, cultural producer, researcher and co-founder of DOXA; and Lee Chun-fung, artist, cultural producer and art educator.

In English, supplemented with Cantonese.
