IFT has the honour to invite the local artist, Tang Kuok Hou, to hold “Photosynthesis II” photography exhibition at IFT Café from 6 October to 31 December 2017, showcasing glamorous night view images of the city of Macao. “Photosynthesis” is one of Tang’s exploration under his observation of the society. It explores the relationship between urban dynamism and artificial light source.
The Institute for Tourism Studies (IFT) has always been committed to promoting the cultural industry in Macao. Apart from constantly providing a variety of cultural and creative courses, IFT has also been pursuing active cooperation with artists and organised exhibitions in recent years to provide a platform for local artists to demonstrate their artworks and in turn to integrate arts into the daily life of local residents. IFT Café at Anim’Arte NAM VAN is one of the platforms to showcase local arts and provide citizens and tourists with a relaxing dining experience with cultural and art elements.
IFT Café not only serves the Institute’s appetising food; but also provides training venue and opportunities to IFT students. The outlet additionally operates as a venue to promote culture, and regularly hosts exhibitions featuring local artworks. In addition to IFT Café, Anim’Arte NAM VAN has many other elements for leisure for citizens and tourists to experience. The revitalised waterfront includes recreational facilities, shops selling cultural and creative products, a book market, and a weekend craft market. Additionally, the area has regular outdoor performances. At the lake, pedal boats are also available for people to ride.
In 2017, IFT received a successful International Quality Review (IQR) from the UK's Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA), and was ranked by the “QS World University Rankings by Subject 2017” as the 2nd best higher education institution in Asia in the field of hospitality and leisure management and the 18th best higher education institution in this field in the world.
