ASEF to Support Creative Industries Meet in Helsinki

Creative Encounters - Third Edition (2013-14)

ASEF is supporting the Europe-Asia Roundtable Series (EARS) on 4-7 September 2014 in Helsinki, Finland through its programme Creative Encounters: Cultural Partnerships between Asia and Europe. EARS in Helsinki will gather 300 musicians, designers and performing artists for a series of roundtables, performances and presentations on the creative industries in Asia and Europe. The event will showcase latest trends in music, design, media and performing arts as well as create opportunities for creative industry professionals to discover business opportunities and share best practices.


EARS is a new platform focusing on creative industry collaboration between Europe and Asia and the 2014 edition in Helsinki is organised in partnership with Modern Sky Entertainment, China and with the support of the Ministry of Education and Culture, Finland. 


On 5 September 2014, ASEF will support a roundtable on policy issues in the creative industries. This topic is emerging as an area of mutual interest for Asia-Europe dialogue and also features high on the cultural agenda of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM). Ambassador ZHANG YAN, Executive Director, ASEF will attend and address the participants during the event in Helsinki.
