In collaboration with Legacies Collective
Do you want to begin the new year by making a commitment to your overall well-being? Explore the various ways to achieve your self-awareness goals with Collective Fitness, a series of experiences that offer holistic approaches to add vitality to your everyday life. The sessions, which will take place between January and March 2023, are organised by Hong Kong-based agency Legacies Collective.
Collective Fitness: A Journey In Self-Discovery
Embark on a journey of self-discovery with Collective Fitness’s specially curated workshops that include self-portrait, movement and meditation, and fitness sessions, starting from January 11, 2023.
The idea behind Collective Fitness is to help existing and potential consumers of art, as well as people in the creative space, better understand themselves as individuals and in a group setting. They can curate their own journeys by participating in a variety of sessions that include a range of activities, from handcrafting to intensive movement workshops, which will be held at theDesk in Sheung Wan and Sai Ying Pun.
The See Yourself sessions, for instance, comprise self-portrait, paper-cutting and art-framing workshops that focus on self-observation. The Nagomi Pastel Art Workshop uses movement, relaxation and meditation to help participants re-engage with their inner selves.
The two-part Mindfulness & Visualisation series will emphasise the exploration of the mind and movement, while the Sportsmanship sessions – helmed by Yeung Chung who runs the city’s first obstacle gym, Sasuke – will explore the flexibilities in the body and mind, as well as give parents, couples and families a chance to bond.
Each session is anywhere between 90 minutes to two hours long, and is priced between HK$300 and HK$650. Participants who sign up for two workshops or more will get a 10% discount.
The aim is to run Collective Fitness throughout the course of 2023 so that participants can chart their growth at the end of the year.
Closing The Gap Between Different Art Consumers And Audiences
Legacies Collective is an independent strategy, arts and cultural management, and communications company that helps people achieve personal and collective growth by sharing knowledge and exchanging innovative ideas and experiences.
The company was founded in September 2022 by creative industries professional Jeannie Wu, who has over a decade of experience as a consultant in contemporary arts. In this capacity, she has given aspiring artists advice on the industry, as well as provided holistic planning, execution, and risk management for personal and corporate portfolio diversification in art.
The agency has two objectives. The first is to train and educate professionals in the contemporary arts space to produce young, hardworking and experienced practitioners to support the industry. The second is to help educate and inform clients and young collectors to create knowledgeable audiences for auction houses, galleries, art events, concerts, and performances.
Legacies Collective Memberships Support Creative Talents
One of the ways in which Legacies Collective nurtures creative talent is by offering membership subscriptions to anyone who wishes to encourage artistic talent. The subscriptions are used to support arts or culture graduates or a talent of a member’s choice.
There are three annual plans – ranging from HK$800 to HK$20,000 – which offer members different benefits.
Each plan includes access to monthly talent-sharing content – such as an interview, a studio visit, or a post-performance chat – to provide members in-depth knowledge of the practices and standards within a creative industry.
In addition, there are monthly advisory briefs and online or in-person consultancy sessions, as well as the option of supporting a talent.
