Call for articles for

Culture Events


Project Period:
15 Apr 2019

ASEF’s arts and culture portal, is currently calling for features and interviews on the topic of “peripheries” for its online Magazine.

What is is an online platform offering up-to-date information on arts, culture & heritage from 51 countries in Asia & Europe. It is a website for artists, cultural professionals, policy makers and anyone interested in international cultural co-operation.

What type of articles/editorial content are we looking for?

In recent years, the arts and cultural sector has been shifting away from discussions concerning capital cities and the cultural centres of countries, where most social and institutional resources are concentrated.

Increasingly so, there has been a trend in decentralisation, bringing artists, cultural professionals and art organisations who operate or occupy the peripheries in an urban society, at the centre of the conversation on arts & culture.

In this context, is looking to commission a series of articles related to the topic of peripheral, be it smaller cities. islands, rural areas that are geographically distant from the big cultural centres.

  • Writers must be a national of an ASEM member country
  • Previous experience in writing articles is necessary
  • Knowledge or involvement in the Asian and European arts scene is an advantage
  • The writer will work in virtual capacity and need not be based in Singapore
