ASEF Unplugged: Conversations on the Arts in Asia and Europe

ASEF Unplugged is the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF)’s new event-series offering more informal and intimate spaces for open, authentic and peer-to-peer conversations. Designed as a meet-and-greet session, ASEF Unplugged is a format responsive to the rapidly changing needs of an increasingly interactive and engaged audience.

ASEF Unplugged – Tokyo

The Tokyo edition of ASEF Unplugged will be held in partnership with EU-Japan Fest, a cultural exchange programme between the European Union and Japan, that is arranged with the EU-Japan Fest Japan Committee, a Japanese organisation that has worked to create such exchanges between the European Capitals of Culture, and Japan.
