Mobility First! – ASEF Cultural Mobility Initiative Microsite

Culture Events


Project Period:
07 Apr 2020 - 30 Nov 2020
Online on

In 2017, ASEF launched Mobility First!, a travel grant for artists & cultural professionals, which has since been recognised in UNESCO’s Reshaping Cultural Policies Report (2nd edition), as a “success story” in bridging existing funding gaps to support cultural mobility in the Asia-Asia and Asia-Europe contexts.

2020 marks the fourth year of Mobility First! and in line with this, we have launched a microsite,, which is a tool for creating a live network amongst the 312 Mobility First! grantees and serves as a database that provides all information about open calls, selection results, statistics and trends since 2017.

In addition, the microsite has a regularly updated COVID-19 section which features social initiatives by Mobility First! alumni.

If you are interested in cultural mobility or wish to #stayconnected with our alumni, visit now!
