Creative Encounters: Cultural Partnerships between Asia and Europe (2009-2017)

Creative Encounters: Cultural Partnerships between Asia and Europe supports an existing grassroots demand for on-going support to co-productions among Asian and European artists. Through this project, professional artists from Asia and Europe are brought together in creative and collaborative relationships to create new art works. Focus rests on contemporary arts disciplines, owing to limited support available to newer art forms vis-à-vis traditional art forms.

Creative Encounters was launched as a project series in 2010 and 9 editions of the project have taken place between 2010 and 2016. Selection was through annual competitive open calls for applications. Having completed a 6-year cycle, an evaluation is being proposed in 2017 to better understand the long-term impact of the project series and the suitability of the project format to support future Asia-Europe co-creation projects in the contemporary arts. 

In 2017, Creative Encounters was officially closed with an external evaluation completed in 2018. ASEF continues to support mutual cultural practices through its Cultural Mobility Grant - Mobility First! All
