Creative Encounters – 5th Edition (2015-16)

Culture Events


Project Period:
15 June 2015 - 31 Dec 2016

The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF), and its partners Arts Network Asia (ANA) and the European network Trans Europe Halles (TEH) have launched the 5th edition of Creative Encounters: Cultural Partnerships between Asia and Europe.

Through Creative Encounters, ASEF, ANA and TEH actively foster connections across cultures by supporting artistic collaborations, exchanges and dialogues. Together, they aim to reinforce Asia-Europe exchanges with the objectives of deepening mutual understanding between cultural communities in the two regions, enhancing the mobility of artists and cultural professionals, and encouraging creative collaborations.

Creative Encounters directly responds to the Action Plan of the ASEM Culture Ministers which recognises “the important role of (…) cultural organisations in promoting cultural diversity” and specifically calls for the promotion of “exchanges in the areas of performances, exhibitions, literary works and audio-visual programmes between Asian and European countries.”
