International projects

West Kowloon (Hong Kong)

Creative Meeting Point: Hong Kong x Barcelona, two-week artist residency exchange starting May 2018, supports artistic research and development. Following two successful collaborations with Finland and Australia launched in November 2016 and March 2017, the West Kowloon Cultural Authority (WKCDA) Performing Arts Department announces a third residency exchange programme, Creative Meeting Point: Hong Kong x Barcelona in collaboration with Barcelona, Spain’s municipal performing arts venue Mercat de les Flors. Spanning three years, the collaboration builds on the international dance network established at WKCDA and cultivates global arts leaders by enhancing cultural exchange and creating international access for local art communities. To deepen artistic conversations between art practitioners in both cities, this initiative earmarks resources for residencies, exchange projects, research, work-in-development showcases, workshops, forums and more.

Hong Kong dance artists Mao Wei and Wong Pik Kei took part in the first two-week exchange in Barcelona. Javier Guerrero and Raquel Klein are the Spanish artists will come to Hong Kong.

Dancing Museums

Dancing Museums is an action-research project designed to foster and sustain long-term collaborations between dance organisations, museums, universities and local communities in order to develop inspiring and long-lasting arts and cultural programmes that people in those communities want to get involved in. The artist Quim Bigas will work in this project until 2021 within a framework of residences and research at the Fundació Joan Miró as an associated artist by the Mercat de les Flors.

Taipei (Taiwan)

The Mercat de les Flors has signed an agreement with the National Theater of Taipei (Taiwan) for cross-country residences of artists. The first pilot residence will begin in 2020.
