Join over 300 museum professionals from across the globe in Amsterdam for the tenth Hands On! Conference, 13-16 October 2015. Be inspired by the latest developments in children’s education in museums.

The 2015 theme is ‘Touch and Learn’. How can museums in the 21st century touch the hearts and minds of children? How can hands-on, sensory experiences enhance children’s education in museums? Together, we’ll explore the ways in which museums can encourage imagination, creativity and lifelong learning in children.

The four-day conference programme includes 3 keynote speeches, 20 lectures, 30 workshops and visits to 30 of the best (children’s) museums and science centres in Amsterdam and the Netherlands. Social events include dinners, parties, a canal boat trip and the Children in Museums Award ceremony.

Speakers confirmed so far include Gail Lord, Co-president of Lord Cultural Resources; Nina Lim-Yuson, President of Museo Pambata in the Philippines; Dr. Yong Zhao, University of Oregon; Leslie Swartz, Senior Vice President of Research and Programme Planning at Boston Children’s Museum; Marianne Grymer Bargeman, Head of the Children and Youth Department at the National Gallery of Denmark; Wim Pijbes, director of the Rijksmuseum; Joël Cahen, director of the Jewish Historical Museum; and Jet van Overeem, Head of Education at Gemeentemuseum The Hague.

The main organisers of the 10th International Hands On! Conference are the Rijksmuseum and the Jewish Historical Museum, in cooperation with the National Maritime Museum, Science Center NEMO and the Dutch Museums Association. Over 30 Dutch museums are united in an advisory board.

Registration is open for Hands On! 2015

Hands On! is an international network of museum professionals. Our aim is to make all museums and science centres meaningful places for children, to professionalize the (children’s) museum field and to share our expertise.

Home and Away is a programme of Mons European Capital of Culture. The Mons Maison Folie hosts artistic visits (residencies, shows, events, exhibitions) from non-European cities. Melbourne and Tokyo are among the invited guests.

‘Ailleurs en Folie’ – Home and Away – is giving space at the Maison Folie to eight non-European cities, with an artistic programming lasting 11 days for each city to present performances, residencies, concerts, games and even gastronomy.  A chance to travel to another culture in the heart of the Belgian city of Mons.

The programming includes:

aef-melbourneTake a break from the norm with the fifth Ailleurs en Folie/Home and Away event, devoted to Melbourne. Twinned with Mons (from a distance!), the Australian city was built over the course of many years of migration. The Maison Folie will embody this journey by becoming positively labyrinthine, with coloured tunnels, mazes in alleyways and meanderings through galleries. Come and explore the different audio and visual worlds of both Australian and home-grown artists.

 

 

Tokyo, let’s go !

The seventh Ailleurs en Folie/Home and Away destination is Tokyo, the city of contrasts, caught between secular traditions and ultra modernity. Welcome to your initiation to Japanese culture, where you will discover new flavours, manga cartoons, retrogaming, Harajuku fashion, robots, Furoshiki art, tea ceremonies, breakbeat music, interactive installations and exhibitions. Basically, the whole archipelago in Mons !

ORDE BARU OK. Video – Indonesia Media Arts Festival is an international biennial event held by Video Art Development Division of the artists collective ruangrupa since 2003. ASEF culture360 will be one of the media partners of the 2015 edition of ORDE BARU OK. Video – Indonesia Media Arts Festival 2015,  which will take place on 15-28 June at the Galeri Nasional Indonesia, Jakarta.

This year, OK. Video aims bigger and changes its name from Jakarta International Video Festival to Indonesia Media Arts Festival. The idea is for the OK. Video to expand its artistic scope and present much broader works. The choice of Orde Baru (New Order) as the theme paves the way for OK. Video in the coming years to have a wider artistic achievement by presenting not only temporal works (video, film, and performance) and installations, single channel or multi-channel, but also sound art, digital imaging, internet-based art, and other works based on media technology. By pushing the boundaries further, OK. Video creates the opportunity to explore new artistic ideas and address new critical issues in new media arts.

The Festival will comprise a series of programmes; exhibition, screening, multimedia performance, workshops, discussion, open lab, and symposium. The festival opening will take place on 14 June from 16:00 to 22:00 with special performances by bequiet, Brisik, AstoneA, Cut & Rescue featuring Dharma Wanita Choir, and visual mapping by Ricky “babay” Janitra and Klub Karya Bulu Tangkis.

New Order | ORDE BARU – the OK. VIDEO – INDONESIA MEDIA ARTS FESTIVAL 2015 takes place 15-28 June 2015 at the Galeri Nasional Indonesia in Jakarta with Exhibition, Screening, Multimedia performance, Open Lab, Workshop, and Symposium.

As the festival’s central theme, New Order will confront two things:

(1) the analog media technology politics controlled and used by authoritarian regimes (the state) to build public perception and resolve their problems, and

(2) digital media technology politics increasingly controlled by the public after the end of Cold War that saw the fall of authoritarian regimes around the world and the onset of democracy.

The Jeu de Paume in Paris has commissioned Cambodian artist Khvay Samnang to make a work for the Satellite 8 series. The Rubber Man video installation can be seen at the Jeu de Paume 2 June – 27 September.

For Khvay Samnang’s Satellite 8 commission Rubber Man (2015), the artist responds to the specific colonial legacy of land use. French Indochina privatized the Khmer monarchy’s land 131 years ago, in 1884. Soon after, rubber seeds arrived, imported from Brazil. And soon after that, the French imported an economic equation that began the physical, conceptual and spiritual transformation of Cambodia’s nature into exploitable land. Cambodia’s first land concession was established in 1922 for a rubber plantation, which, until 1975, was the largest in the world.

For over a year, Khvay Samnang repeatedly returned to Rattanakiri, Cambodia’s northeastern highland province, to survey the altered environment—from the remaining villages to the strategic clearings, from rubber tree saplings to mature plantations.
His three-channel video installation frames these landscapes, in which the artist pours fresh liquid rubber over his body, then sets about walki ng in and out of the rati onal cash crop lines, as if a lost spectre.

As the forests disappear, Khvay Samnang asks, “Where will the spirits live?

Subtly and often with humour, Khvay Samnang offers new interpretations of history, current controversial issues and longstanding cultural practices.

Khvay Samnang (born 1982, Svay Rieng, Cambodia) has a multidisciplinary practice spanning performance, photography, video and installation. Prompted by instinct and hearsay, direct experience and media sources, Khvay Samnang follows unresolved stories he believes require intervention. Employing symbolic and intentionally futile gestures, he offers new interpretations of history and contentious current affairs events that resist the polarizing language known to media and legal reports.

The Asian Festival of Children’s Content (AFCC) takes place in Singapore 31 May – 6 June, a festival that brings together content creators and producers with parents, teachers, librarians and anyone interested in quality Asian content for children around the world.

Now in its 6th year, the 8-day festival will feature over 140 speakers including authors, illustrators, publishers, and media professionals from countries like Singapore, China, Australia, Philippines, New Zealand, the United States and United Kingdom.

With a mix of professional conferences, masterclasses and workshops, rights fair and media mart, and public events, AFCC is a unique and popular event right here in Asia that provides an opportunity for writers, illustrators, editors, publishers, agents, distributors, parents, children, teachers, and librarians to meet, learn, develop their craft, and discover business opportunities.

The National Book Development Council of Singapore has been organising the highly popular Asian Children’s Writers & Illustrators Conference for the past ten years. Leveraging on its success, the conference was expanded to form AFCC which has emerged as a very popular professional and trade event since 2010 into the foremost professional and trade event for Children‘s Content in Asia.

AFCC impacts 1.5 billion children in Asia as well as their parents, professionals, and businesses involved in their development.

Last year, the AFCC had 171 Speakers and Moderators, 938 Conference Delegates and 11,320 participants from Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar, Brunei, Sri Lanka, China, India, Korea, USA, UK, Australia, Germany, Canada, New Zealand, Spain, Kyrgyzstan, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Belgium, Lebanon, Slovakia!
