Join us in congratulating ISPA board member Alison Friedman on her new appointment as Artistic Director, Performing Arts, a new position specially created by the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority (WKCDA) as an effort to further strengthen the artistic vision and direction ahead of the highly anticipated opening of major performing arts venues in WKCD over the coming several years.
As Alison departed Ping Pong Productions (PPP) that she founded, Mengtong Guan was promoted to Executive and Creative Director to succeed the founder.
Mr Louis Yu, Executive Director of Performing Arts of WKCDA, said,
Ms Friedman is a board member of the International Society for the Performing Arts, one of the largest international alliances of leaders in the performing arts. She has a deep connection with Chinese arts and culture and is fluent in Putonghua. I am particularly impressed by the east-meets-west focus of the many activities she has organised, which is among the key themes that the Authority will emphasise in its artistic programming. She will bring vibrancy and new perspectives to our artistic programming, adding to the solid work our teams have already done."
