Welcome to Find A Partner!
The need to better connect Asian and European organisations was identified through ASEF’s Creative Encounters programme, which has been running since 2010 and received hundreds of proposals since its inception.
While many challenges are facing cultural organisations, the ability to network is a fundamental condition to nurture and enable creative collaborations.
To this end, ASEF’s portal culture360.org, seeks to play a role in the development of online cultural communities and networks between Asia and Europe.
Find a Partner is a space where cultural organisations can find new opportunities to collaborate and network with each other across Asia and Europe. While sharing information about their mission and activities, member organisations can seek and offer specific partnership opportunities that lead to concrete collaborative projects and initiatives.
You can now add an organisation to the Find A Partner database.
