China/Hong Kong: Artists demand freedom from interference
More than 250 artists and arts groups have signed a petition urging the government to review its arts policy, as part of a campaign to protect autonomy and creative freedom.
Campaign organisers also want the government to introduce guidelines that will prevent interference in the creative process by the management of arts organisations. The campaign was prompted by controversy in October over alleged “political censorship” of a production by the Hong Kong Ballet and Germany’s Ballett Dortmund.
