ASEF Unplugged - Conversations on the Arts in Asia and Europe

UPDATE for 2020 related to COVID-19:

The health & safety of our participants & partners are paramount and we are committed to supporting the safe distancing measures implemented by governments in Asia & Europe.

As such, all ASEF Unplugged on-site events for 2020 have been cancelled. Instead, conversations have gone digital. Virtual editions of ASEF Unplugged can be accessed here. 

In the meantime, #stayconnected and check out our digital programmes, opportunities and open calls over at our arts website www.culture360.ASEF.org

 

Before you go, let's walk through memory lane with ASEF Unplugged's Year In Review video below:

 

Since it was first established in 1997, the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) has been facilitating conversations on arts, culture and heritage. Its longstanding dialogue platforms have included large-scale formats (such as Experts’ Meetings, Public Forums and, more recently, ASEF Policy Panels), which have been organised in various cities across the two continents in partnership with arts organisations and ASEM Ministries of Culture. In May 2018, ASEF Unplugged, a new small-format event-series was launched to promote more open conversations in tune with the rapidly changing needs of an increasingly interactive and engaged audience.
