Introduction by the Dean of
School of Creative Media


The Run Run Shaw Creative Media Centre (CMC) Grand Opening Festival will showcase the work of the School of Creative Media faculty in a major new exhibition in the CMC Gallery.  

The SCM faculty is made up of world-renowned artists, designers and producers of content who set benchmarks and points of departure for our students. Their creativity profoundly informs the quality of their teaching and offers models of inspiration. They embody that spirit of discovery and innovation that is the hallmark of CityU, and also consolidate its international profile.

Digital technology is a terrain of astonishingly fast transformation and invention. Even so, long-standing traditions of the teacher-student relationship continue to inform education in this arena, especially where teachers’ pioneering work offers qualitative criteria that grounds student experiment in frameworks of philosophical reflection and existential responsibility. This attitude reverberates in the exemplary curatorial approach taken by Robin Peckham, which makes the diverse research activities of the SCM faculty a stimulating exhibition experience.

This is a fitting focus for the first ever exhibition to be mounted in the CMC Gallery. The eminent architect Daniel Libeskind, has given CityU an extraordinary environment to work in. With its Grand Opening Festival the CMC is establishing itself as a leading hub of cultural activity for Hong Kong and Asia. It also advances CityU’s commitment to the Hong Kong community, giving visitors an exciting insight into the multifaceted creative energies that the School of Creative Media offers its students.
