Culture Department


In the field of culture, ASEF promotes various forms of cultural co-operation between Asia and Europe, including artistic collaborations, bi-regional networks and policy dialogue. In addition to fostering sustainable partnerships between Asian and European arts organisations, ASEF also facilitates dialogue between the arts sector and government agencies responsible for culture.

Our key projects are:

ASEF Cultural Policy Dialogue Series, which stimulates analysis and exchange of ideas on issues of mutual interest for practitioners and policymakers in Asia and Europe, an information platform for artists, cultural professionals and policy makers in 53 countries across Asia and Europe

ASEF Creative Networks, which facilitates dialogue and co-operation among cultural networks in both continents (through a competitive annual open call for proposals)  

Asia-Europe Museum Network (ASEMUS), which promotes knowledge exchange and joint activities among 100+ museum members across Asia and Europe  

Creative Encounters: Cultural Partnerships between Asia and Europe, which supports artistic co-creation in contemporary art forms (such as dance, music, film, literature etc.) through a competitive annual open call for proposals
