ASEF Introduces Newly-Revamped Arts and Culture Portal

Project Updates


31 Oct 2017

The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) is pleased to announce the re-launch of its online arts and culture portal is an information hub for the arts and culture communities in Asia and Europe.

In 2003, Asian and European Culture Ministers of ASEF countries wished to “develop an ASEM Cultural Portal as a gateway to Asia-Europe cultural connectivity [and] to enhance access to cultural information”. The web portal ASEF culture360 is a realisation of this dream.

Over the past decade, ASEF culture360 has been providing easy access to relevant and reliable information for individual artists, arts organisations, and policymakers across the ASEM region. It remains the only portal offering such kind of service in the ASEM context, and has been recognised as a good model of information exchange between the two regions by UNESCO, the UN’s agency for culture, and the European Union.

The new platform features latest technologies in terms of responsive and user-centred design, and state-of-the-art search engine capabilities. It also follows the WCAG 2.0 standards, a set of accessibility guidelines that specifies how to make content accessible for people with disabilities.
