Being the city’s pioneer in arts and culture, MGM strives to lead the art trend. The Company is devoted to cultivate local small and medium creative enterprises and young creative professionals, as well to promote commercialization of their business. Since late September, MGM partners with Macau Cultural and Creative Integrated Services Center (cCenter) to present the “MGM Art Camp X cMarket” at MGM MACAU. With the integration of creative workshops, industry talks and a local design shop, the “MGM Art Camp X cMarket” is an ideal arena for young creative professionals to showcase their unique creativity to locals and visitors from all over the world, and therefore offering a great opportunity to expand their market.
Recently, Mr. Leong Heng Teng and Ms. Davina Chu Miu Lai, President and Member of Administration Council of Cultural Industries Fund, have paid a visit to the “MGM Art Camp X cMarket”. They exchanged views on fostering the development of Macau’s creative industries with Mr. Kenneth Feng, President, Chief Strategic Officer and Director of MGM China Holdings Limited; Mr. Simon Leong, Executive Director of Purchasing; Ms. Mina Siew, Assistant Director of Community Relations of MGM; Ms. Teresa Wai Kun Ng, Executive Director, and Ms. Cherry Man Teng Ieong, Marketing Director of cCenter. After the visit, there is a consensus on hosting a talk in December about MGM’s supply chain service by Mr. Simon Leong, introducing the purchasing requirements and procedures of Macau’s integrated resort operator to the practitioners of the local creative industries.
Mr. Leong Heng Teng shared his thoughts on the project after the visit, “We are delighted to see mutual collaboration established between integrated resort operator and the local creative industries. This ‘MGM Art Camp X cMarket’ best utilizes the creativity of our local creative industries as well as the tourism resources of large integrated resort to generate a new horizon of business opportunities. This project is going to enhance the sustainability and competitiveness of our creative industries and act as a platform to showcase their works. We are looking forward to see more meaningful projects alike in enriching Macau’s tourism product offerings with our local arts and culture.”
Ms. Teresa Wai Kun Ng expressed her appreciation, “We are truly thankful for the resources committed by MGM, who is willing to offer an opportunity for local creative professionals and SMEs. Other than providing resources such as venue, MGM itself is also an inspiration with its strong arts and cultural leadership and abundant experiences in organizing major events, giving full play to its role as a platform to encourage conversations. Therefore, I believe this collaboration is beneficial for the commercialization of our local creative enterprises.”
“MGM Art Camp X cMarket” is open to public now until January 3, 2019, 12pm to 8pm on Saturdays and Sundays at Grand Praça of MGM MACAU. The project has four themes, “Leather Craftsmanship”, “Illustration”, “Natural Skincare” and “Macau Cultural Design”, and each theme is packed with a corresponding series of crafting workshops and industry talks. The current theme, “Illustration”, offers workshops of calligraphy, watercolor painting and illustrations, available for sign up from now until November 17.
