On 6-16 May 2015 in Ljubljana, Slovenia, emerging curators, artists and students from Slovenia, the Philippines and Croatia will meet to exchange views on contemporary curatorial practices in Asia and Europe.

Through a series of lectures, workshops, field study tours and exhibitions, Curating-In- Depth will investigate initiatives in the field of contemporary curatorial practices. The project will address in particular the increasingly common trend of ‘parachuting curators’ that rely on minimum engagement with the local context in the curating process.  The project also aims to strengthen Asia-Europe non-governmental institutional collaborations and to confront evident challenges in the still neglected field of curating and mediating the arts.

Part 2 of Curating-in-Depth will see the same group of curators, artists and critics meet in the Philippines in August 2015, for another 2-week intensive exchange. Through this reciprocal mobility between Slovenia, Croatia and the Philippines, the project aims to increase the knowledge sharing on good practices for curating the contemporary visual arts. ASEF will also attend the opening of the NSK exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in Ljubljana on 11 May 2015.

Curating-In-Depth is one of the 3 selected projects of Creative Encounters: Cultural Partnerships between Asia and Europe (4th Edition).  Project partners include SCCA, Centre for Contemporary Arts – Ljubljana (Slovenia) and Philippines based art center Planting Rice, with the support of Croatian arts platform Kurziv.

On 30-31 March in Athens, Greece, ASEF will support and participate in the first meeting of the SEAAA Mobility Platform for artistic and cultural mobility with a focus on South Europe, Asia and Australia. The SEAAA Mobility Platform will launch a new Alliance of funding and regranting organisations to support mobility of artists and cultural professionals.

The project aims to respond to artistic, directional and geographic imbalances, by establishing a network of mobility funders from ASEM countries to fund different artistic and cultural mobility routes within the Euro-Asia region. It also aims to support the mobility and creative projects of individual beneficiary artists and cultural operators in ASEM countries by running an open call, evaluating the applications, selecting the beneficiaries, reimbursing travel expenses and collecting reports.

The meeting will allow discussion on mobility needs and funding schemes existing in each of these regions and will enable participants to define the SEAAA mobility fund more precisely through agreement on common ethics and rules of implementation that could pave the way for possible reciprocal funding of mobility.

Potential final beneficiaries of the SEAAA mobility platform would be artists and cultural operators from these regions who have their own projects (that concern at least two of the regions mentioned) and need to travel but cannot find the funds for their round-trip ticket and visa costs.

Project partners include Roberto Cimetta Fund (France), Korea Arts Management Service (Korea), Australia Council for the Arts, Valletta 2018 Foundation (Malta), Regione Puglia (Italy),  Arts Network Asia (Singapore), The Russian Theatre Union and Theatre Entropia. The project has been selected through the second edition of ASEF Creative Networks 2015.

« Mobility is recognised by many cultural operators as an effective funding policy in today’s globalised world because it responds to global issues ». Natasa Milovic, Artist director of Scena Carina, Arab-Balkan Exchange Platform, 11/09/2013, Belgrade, Serbia

ASEF has been supporting information on cultural mobility since 2012 with the Mobility Funding Guides for International Cultural Exchange in Asia, now in its 3rd edition. In addition, ASEF has supported dialogue on mobility since 2013, with the meeting of Asian and European cultural mobility funders in Prague, Czech Republic (5-6 June 2013)  and the meeting on Access and Reciprocity organised by On the Move in partnership with Asialink and ResArtis in Melbourne, Australia (12 May 2014).

GALA

 

As part of the media partnership with the Green Art Lab Alliance (GALA), ASEF culture360 participated in the final general meeting organised by the network in Glasgow, United Kingdom on 12-14 March 2015.

GALA brought together 19 artistic and cultural partners from across Europe to explore the concept of sustainability in practical, ethical and artistic ways. Co-financed by the EU Culture programme 2007-2013, the GALA network has developed in 2 years (April 2013-May 2015) a number of activities aimed at exploring what environmental sustainability means for the visual arts and design and what the arts can do to promote sustainability. Together with designers, artists and scientists, the GALA partners investigated the challenges and opportunities that environmental sustainability implies for artists and art institutions.

In this final general meeting, all 19 partner organisations including the three media partners of the project, Trans Europe Halles, ASEF culture360 and Imagine2020 gathered to share the results of the 2 years collaboration and discuss the way ahead for the GALA network.

Hosted by Creative Carbon Scotland in Glasgow, the GALA meeting also presented the Glasgow’s Green: Imagining a Sustainable City on 14 March. Organised by Creative Carbon Scotland and Glasgow Arts at Tramway, the programme was opened to the public and included several free artist-led workshops and activities exploring how the arts can contribute to a more environmental sustainability city. Workshop themes included food, textiles, urban ecologies, public space, architecture, circular economy and manufacturing.

ASEF culture360 is proud to announce its first media partnership in 2015 with Tropfest South East Asia, the world largest short film festival.Over 20 years ago, John Polson started the Tropicana Short Film Festival (as it was originally known) as an informal short film screening for cast, crew and friends at the Tropicana Cafe in Sydney. More than 200 people showed up for that first screening. Inspired by the turn out, John decided that a full-fledged short film festival was the next step.

The festival has since expanded to become the world’s largest short film festival, and now includes screenings in New York, New Zealand, Abu Dhabi, and – since 2014 – Penang, Malaysia. The festival is free to attend and showcases the finalist films from the Tropfest SEA short film competition, which is open to all residents and citizens of Southeast Asia. 

Tropfest SEA will host its signature Film Forum Roughcut which gives film-lovers the opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with some of the biggest names in the industry in this day of informal talks and candid conversations among the brightest stars in film.

Keynote speakers for Roughcut 2015 include the most colourful man in cinema, legendary cinematographer and director, Christopher Doyle (In the Mood for Love, 2046, Paris Je T’Aime), who will be giving a cinematography masterclass like no other. Audiences will also be treated to an intimate conversation with Hollywood’s latest leading man and heart throb, Sullivan Stapleton (300, Animal Kingdom, Strike Back, Gangster Squad) who will be sharing his tales of life in front of the lens.

The day will also feature conversations with industry heavyweights including international animation giants Harry Yoon and Lak Taechawanchai, Oscar-shortlisted director Hannah Espia, MPA Asia Pacific Chairman Mike Ellis, outrageous Singaporean funny man Kumar, Tropfest SEA 2014 winner Sothea Ines and many other film luminaries from across the region.

Roughcut takes place on January 31 2015 (9am – 5pm) at Hotel Jen, George Town, Penang.

Mobility Funding Guide

The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) and On the Move are jointly presenting for the first time, the Mobility Funding Guides for International Cultural Exchange in 49 countries of Asia and Europe. In addition to the 3rd edition of the Mapping of Funding Opportunities for International Cultural Exchange in Asia, which presents mobility funding resources for 19 Asian countries, this year, we will also present the updated guides for 27 countries of the European Union, as well as Norway, Switzerland and the Russian Federation. These guides follow the methodology used in the online ‘Guide for International Funding Opportunities for the Mobility of European artists and culture professionals’, produced in 2011 by the Interarts Foundation, On The Move within the scope of the EU funded project PRACTICS.

The launch of this comprehensive list of resources on mobility in Asia and Europe follows a series of important meetings that have happened in 2013 and 2014. Initiated in 2013 by ASEF with the Platform meeting of Asian and European cultural mobility funders in Prague, Czech Republic (5-6 June 2013) co-organised with the Arts and Theatre Institute-Prague and the Kelola Foundation, the conversation among funders and policy makers has further developed in 2014, with the brainstorming meeting on Access and Reciprocity organised by On the Move in partnership with Asialink and ResArtis in Melbourne, Australia (12 May 2014).

The meeting supported by ASEF was part of the Inaugural Meeting of the Asia-Europe-Australia Creative Residency Network (AAECRN) and in conjunction with the IETM Asia Satellite Meeting co-organised by IETM (International Network for Contemporary Performing Arts) and the Australia Council for the Arts.

Among the key findings of the Melbourne meeting on Access and Reciprocity was that multiple types of partnerships are necessary at different levels: international, national, regional but also between public and private funders and cultural organisations and artists and cultural professionals. Participants also agreed on the need for a new understanding of the notion of reciprocity.  National and international agencies funding mobility should consider the benefits of investing not only on ‘their’ national artists and ‘their’ country but go beyond the idea of “export” and define how to build long-lasting collaborations with different partners at different levels.
Over 50 cultural mobility funders, stakeholders and professionals from Asia, Australia and Europe agreed on the need to reinforce and diversify networks through the support of new types of networks’ initiatives and their potential for connections within the region Australia-Asia-Europe.

Such meetings have also to be read in the context of other international and regional initiatives like the Preparatory Action on Culture in EU External Relations or the recent Canary Island Declaration on Artistic and Cultural Mobility coordinated by the Roberto Cimetta Fund.

The international approach of the mobility funding guides is crucial as it positions the discussion on the funding of cultural mobility in a global perspective in order to better respond to local needs and interests from the cultural sector.

ASEF and On the Move will continue to work together with the cultural sector and other partner organisations to promote mobility of artists and cultural professionals in Asia and Europe, in line with the recommendations of Asian and European Culture Ministers (in the framework of the Asia-Europe Meeting/ASEM) also reinforced at the last 6th ASEM Culture Ministers Meeting (Netherlands, October 2014).

ASEF and On the Move wish to thank for their information and data support: Arts Network Asia, Japan Center Pacific Basin Arts Communication (PARC), Tokyo Performing Arts Market (TPAM), Korea Arts Management Service (KAMS), Japan Foundation, Australia Council for the Arts, Luxembourg Agency for Cultural Affairs and the following On the Move members – ITI-Germany and IGBK (through their website touring-artists.info), DutchCulture/TransArtists, Arts and Theatre Institute-Czech Republic, Zbigniew Raszewski Theatre Institute-Poland and the Theatre Union of the Russian Federation .

We hope you will find this updated 3rd edition a useful resource.
