About Cultural Masseur Festival 2022

Cross-disciplinary Artful Experiences that Respond to Our Time

Art is life. The coexistence and intersectionality of thoughts, technologies, forms, space,  culture, humans and non-humans contributes to give form to a work in progress. Cultural Masseur Festival responds to the current era through cross-disciplinary creations and salons, and serves as a shared platform of knowledge and human experiences. 

The platform, which strives to break the wall between art and daily life, takes root in research and practice, generating knowledge, peers nourishment, to unleash the potential that lies within every individual by collaboration through prototyping impactful ideas and offering experiential encounters. 

Organised by the Hong Kong Arts Centre, Cultural Masseur Festival,  gathers local and overseas artists to collaborate with professionals from different disciplines to produce a series of cross-disciplinary arts programmes. The Festival strives to expand the boundaries of disciplines, identifying overlapping areas, and orienting art at the core of the discourse of human advancement in an ecological sense. 

Cultural Masseurs Programme Overview

Body massage stimulates circulation, and massage of the mind stimulates the circulation of ideas, particularly creative ones. “Cultural masseurs” connect the dots in the cultural scene, helping to uncover the beauty in our daily lives, as well as respond to daily lives with arts. The project, targeted at young people, adults, and early retirees, brings arts into lives through an array of carefully curated programmes: guided tours, talks, workshops, internship and apprenticeship, as well as the process of art-making. These programmes may enlighten the participants to see the world in an artful way, and they will in turn enlighten others as active audience through sharing of what they know about the arts, and ultimately becoming “cultural masseurs” themselves. Only through connecting arts and everyday living can arts thrive in a city and culture be passed on.
