ASEF has launched an open call for proposals through ‘ASEF Creative Networks’, a new initiative that recognises cultural networks as an important mechanism for bi-regional collaboration and cooperation in the fields of arts and culture.
Through this new programme, ASEF seeks to strengthen its long-standing role as a connector of cultural networks in Asia and Europe for over 16 years.
ASEF welcomes proposals from Asian and European cultural networks for activities such as capacity building workshops, mapping of good practices, expansion of Asian and European networks to the other region, among others. The proposed projects must take place between 1 January 2014 and 30 November 2014.
Multilateral proposals that engage as many partners and participants as possible from the 49 member countries of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM), and which favour effective, long-term cooperation are particularly encouraged. The submission deadline is 15 August 2013.
‘ASEF Creative Networks’ seeks to translate into action the call of ASEM Culture Ministers to promote “further enhanced networking among professionals in the cultural field through existing professional networks.”
