Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF)-Creative Networks encourages collaborations among networks in order to reinforce the dialogue between cultural professionals from Asia and Europe. Its first open call for proposals is now open.
Through this program, the ASEF seeks to strengthen its role as a connector between cultural networks of the two regions since the past 15 years. The program draws from the positive experiences gained through the successful work of the Creative Encounters: Cultural Partnerships Between Asia and Europe and will be based on a similar selection and funding model.
Eligible candidates for this program include representatives of existing and/or emerging cultural/artistic networks, at national, regional, sub-regional or bi-regional levels. Proposals will be selected according to their relevance in the framework of ASEF’s mission, the financial commitment of involved partners, and ability to raise ASEF’s visibility within the cultural sector. The implementation of new bi-regional networks and the expansion of Asian/European networks to the other region will be particularly encouraged. Selected partners will receive partial financial contributions from ASEF.
ASEF welcomes proposals from Asian and European cultural networks for activities such as capacity building workshops, mapping of good practices, expansion of Asian or European networks to the other region, among others. They shall take place between January 1, 2014 and November 30.
Multilateral proposals that engage as many partners and participants as possible from the 49 ASEM member countries and which favour effective, long-term cooperation are particularly encouraged.
The submission deadline is August 15.
