西九文化區在不充分咨詢後,無聲無式地落實並在八月一日正式推行西九文化區街頭表演指引。當中對街頭表演諸多限制,對藝術文化含糊其詞、隨意演譯,對原屬市民大眾的公共空間收歸局有,對街頭表演者更推行發牌制度;嚴加規管。

就筆者於八月一日的西九文化區「街頭表演指引」的簡佈會上得知,西九文化區管理局所推的「街頭表演指引」除了作為西九文化區的指引外,更暗藏著「我們希望將這概念推廣到全香港」。 在這情況下,西九文化局更將於八月九日開始舉辦名為「自由約」的每月活動,進一步落實及把「街頭表演指引」生米煮成熟飯。 就這情況,有朋友在討論後,打算在八月九日的「自由約」外,執緊自主街頭藝術工作者的觸感,實踐公共空間的自主表達,分享他們就事態的回應,更呼喚更多的迴響及持續的關注。

以下節錄了他們的討論及思考。

我地有使用公共空間嘅自主權。 經過參與幾次西九嘅閉門會議,我明白西九管理局不但無捍衞藝術嘅自主權,更主動扼殺街頭表演者嘅存在價值,用比街道附例更多嘅規限,限制街頭表演者係西九既自由同權利。其中指引中「不雅」、「令人厭惡」等字眼既定義,更係含糊不清。對「粗口」、「露點」既演出更加係禁止。咁無疑係排擠緊部分本土、民間、草根既藝術。另外,以閉門邀請個别人士參與論壇、諮詢,更加係可恥。八月一日,亦係無提早宣傳下推出指引。香港人,本來全民就應該擁有共同管理西九的權利和責任。 西九既文化政策,對未來既香港公共空間發展,帶有摧毀性既傷害。十年計劃以及需要面試既牌照,其實係對大家演出內容既審查,未出發,先自宮。 當然,更加令人感到新奇嘅條例,包括不准主動叫人叫囂等。西九佔地擴闊,未來更會容納大型酒店、商場等商業機構;隔離高尚住宅林立,但管理局既指引形同虛設,根本無實際既執法權。到最後,只會變成靠攏高層人士、商户既投訴機制。 藝術家,街頭表演者的存在,並不在於為西九帶來活力。這是本末倒置。

The problem with West Kowloon Management is that they are redefining the meaning of public space without any reference to the objective. West Kowloon Management becomes a client to the area 24/7. Meaning they behave more or less like Clockenflap when the space is not rented out by institutions like them; making rules and regulations like if it is a private party. This is a big conflict of interests on the part of thr government. The sentence “we provide an alternative platform for buskers" in this context is actually invalid because under common law, busking is a legal event ensured by Basic Laws and busking is counted as a cultural event by a court ruling. They have no need to provide any platform. The space is automatically is a platform and every street is a plat form. In order for this sentence to be valid, busking legality have to be at least a questionable even. In reality it might be but in theory and the ruling of the busker in 09 (the juggler dude), under the common law, busking is perfectly legal. Therefor buskers only need to comply to laws and regulations dictated by civil laws for example noise control which is a certain Db over the backgorund noise not an improvise 85 Db absolute. Also it is illegal to use foul words, or if guys want to take off his shirt in public area, there is absolutely no law prohibiting that. So in essence they are changing the statues of the West Kowloon Park area to a private statues and the private company is West Kowloon Management. But we all know West Kowloon is not a private company. The improvisational skills of government beats a lot of HK musicians. This is the only credit I grant them. So in essence if busker submit to West Kowloon, it means they are providing free entertainment for a private event. How dumb is that? While bands on the stage get a pay, busker gets nothing….in fact buskers need to paid this private company in order to join this private event. Ridiculous.
