On 30-31 March in Athens, Greece, ASEF will support and participate in the first meeting of the SEAAA Platform for artistic and cultural mobility with a focus on South Europe, Asia and Australia. The SEAAA Mobility Platform will launch a new Alliance of funding and re-granting organisations to support mobility of artists and cultural professionals.
The project aims to respond to artistic, directional and geographic imbalances by establishing a network of mobility funders from ASEM countries to fund different artistic and cultural mobility routes within the Euro-Asia region. The initiative also aims to support the mobility and creative projects of individual artists and cultural operators in ASEM countries by running an open call, evaluating applications, selecting beneficiaries, reimbursing travel expenses and collecting reports.
Project partners include Roberto Cimetta Fund (France), Korea Arts Management Service (Korea) and Australia Council for the Arts (Australia). The project has been selected through the 2nd edition of ASEF Creative Networks.
