ASEF Cultural Grants 2004

Culture Events


Project Period:
09 Dec 2004 - 11 Dec 2004


The ASEF awarded Cultural Grants to facilitate the participation of six European cultural professionals in the Asia-Europe Dialogue:

– Annemie Vanckere (the Netherlands)

– Claire Verlet (France)

– Lois Keidan (UK)

– Mark Depuiter (Portugal)

– Sigrid Gareis (Austria)

– Silke Bake (Germany)

Participants engaged in dynamic discussion with critically and publicly acclaimed Asian artists on the possibilities for an artist-led Asia-Europe Network.


– What is Europe’s fascination with Asia and vice-versa?

– Is there a need for a tangible network to connect the two regions?

– What form will such a network or portal take?

– Who could the major players in such an endeavour be?

– Why have such initiatives never really met the mark in the past?

– How can the proposed network be extensive (if not exhaustive) yet avoid duplication or redundancy of efforts?

– How can such a network be implemented and what will it take to ensure that it is financially sustainable?
