Creative Encounters Second Edition | 13 shortlisted projects

Project Updates


1 Oct 2012

13 creative proposals have been shortlisted from over 300 submissions for the 2nd edition of the Creative Encounters – Cultural Partnerships between Asia and Europe. It is an initiative by the Asia-Europe Foundation, Arts Network Asia and Trans Europe Halles.

The shortlisted applicants are requested to submit a detailed proposal on or before Friday, 21 September 2012. Successful applicants will be notified by 31 October 2012.

Meanwhile, two projects from the first edition of the Creative Encounters are taking place in Indonesia and in Germany.

‘The Ripple Effect’ presented its final performance in Maluku, Indonesia (11-23 September 2012). This multi-disciplinary, high-quality performance, developed through a one-year programme of creative collaborations in France, India, Indonesia and the UK, includes practical training and community engagement using a wide variety of art-forms, from traditional to experimental. The underlying idea is to create new techniques in living art pedagogy.

‘The Wasteland Twinning Network Forum’ has taken place at ZK/U Berlin, Germany (21-23 September 2012). The exhibition and public forum brought together international project partners from Europe, Asia and Australia to present their collaborative research. The study involves an exploration of urban wastelands and networked trans-disciplinary practice in five cities, Amsterdam, Berlin, Guwahati, Nottingham and Yogyakarta.
