Creative Affinity
Creativity is the key graduate attribute that transcends disciplines and leads to design, invention, collaboration and innovation. The arts foster creativity. All students can develop their creative capacities if they have access to rich learning opportunities in environments that nurture and support their creative development. With the aim to enhance personal creative growth, the program offered by the Creative Affinity Community is designed to demystify the concepts, practices and processes of creativity through an exploration of visual arts and design activities.
Prof. Anna KWONG
Senior Lecturer, Division of Humanities
Program Director, Center for the Arts
Anna was trained as an art historian in Italy and Austria. She has been teaching various courses on Western art and architecture at HKUST for some years and enjoys sharing her experience with students. In her leisure time, she practises Lingnan School Chinese ink painting. She believes “creativity is like one of our senses: everybody is born with it; what we have to do is to learn to use it, explore its capacities and express it through various means."
Members of Creative Affinity Community will learn to:
  • Appreciate artworks and use their practical skill in visual art for the communication of ideas
  • Produce documentation of the creative process and reflection on art
  • Demonstrate creative ability by producing artworks for a joint exhibition
Proposed activities include:
  • Workshops on artistic skills such as photography, videography, graphics and media arts and various areas of design
  • Seminars and talks by artists, designers and creators who will share their thoughts on creativity by examining their own creative process
  • Discussion sessions on topics related to visual arts and design
  • Field trips to exhibitions, art museums during weekends and university holidays
  • Student-organized exhibitions and student-produced collective artwork that serve as a means to share their creative artwork with the community. Students have to submit an individual portfolio at the end of the semester
Students' Feedback
"Creativity is important to fulfill one of the criteria of being a successful man because following other’s way, you will not get a unique life, I am just another copy of someone."
- Terry CHI (Year 2, ACCT)
"We have a common goal that draws us together. We all want to explore our creativity and acquire skills that are beyond our own academic disciplines. Living in Hall VII gives me a sense of purpose." 
- Cherry LUK (Year 3, MGMT)
