Renowned educator and scriptwriter explore at master class how art inspires youth

著名教育家及編劇於大師班探討如何以藝術影響年輕一代

The Academy of Film of the School of Communication and ART IS LOVE campaign co-organised the seminar “Empowerment through Art: Dare to Open the Door to Self-discovery and Become an Inspiration to Others”. Dr Hayley Kan, convener of ART IS LOVE campaign, and Mr Yau Nai-hoi, renowned scriptwriter were invited to share their art experiences to inspire the younger generation.   
 
Dr Kan shared her insight into art and creativity: “There is a saying which inspires me, ‘Art is creativity, creativity is passion, passion is love’. Art involves creativity and creativity needs passion. To have passion, one must be illuminated by love. Art is a valuable medium for one to show love and be an inspiration to others.”
 
Expanding on Dr Kan’s view on inspiration, Mr Yau pointed out two influential elements in his creative process. He said, “I always remind myself of two things—awareness and contemplation. As a creator, one should be highly aware of one’s own emotion and behaviour. With such awareness, one will be able to contemplate one’s thoughts. Contemplation and reflection are part of a continuous process through which new ideas arise.”
 
Both Dr Kan and Mr Yau agreed that art facilitates discovery, which brings wider possibilities and more positive energy to one another.

傳理學院電影學院與「ART IS LOVE 賦能藝術」教育運動合辦講座,主題為「勇於自我探索,造就啟發共享」,邀得「ART IS LOVE 賦能藝術」教育運動發起人簡美蓮博士和著名編劇游乃海先生擔任嘉賓,分享以藝術啟發年輕人的經驗。
  
簡博士在講座中分享了她對藝術和創意的見解。她說:「『藝術是創意、創意是熱情、熱情是愛』,這個說法很有意思。藝術創作牽涉創意,而創意需要熱情,熱情需要愛來燃點,所以藝術是帶給別人愛和啟發的重要力量。」
  
游先生分享影響其創作的兩項重要元素。他說:「作為創作者,我經常提醒自己要具備覺知和觀察的能力。覺知是要時刻清楚地知道自己的行為和情緒,然後再深刻地觀察自己的內心,從而作出反思。創作是個不停自我反思的過程,靈感也會應運而生。」
 
簡博士和游先生同時指出,藝術提供了探索的機會,並帶來更多可能性和正能量。
