Though it has provided an opportunity for the community to discuss in public a long-neglected issue affecting the overall quality of life in Hong Kong, the "Arts Policy Review Report" released recently by the Governments is, needless to say, disappointing in almost all the areas it deals with.
Even in its vague though relatively aggressive move to propose the creation of an Arts Council, the Recreation and Culture Branch and the Council for Performing Arts (CFPA), its only advisory body whose members are so far all appointed, fall short of posing the most fundamental, if demanding, question for the community they serve: How is the culture of Hong Kong at stake, here and now, amid this call for review of policy matters that cover the performing, visual and literary arts (as is now proposed)?
