ASEF-ENCATC partnership reinforced at 2021 ENCATC Congress

ASEF Executive Director, Ambassador Toru MORIKAWA will be speaking at the 2021 ENCATC Digital Congress "Artists in the spotlight – In search of new policy agendas for education and research”, online on 20 October 2021 at 11:30-12:00 PM CET / 5:30 - 6:00 PM SGT.

ENCATC, the European network on cultural management & policy and ASEF have developed since last year a strategic partnership that has resulted in the virtual residency Virtual Crossovers – an e-residency for emerging arts journalists from Asia and Europe, as well as communication and knowledge exchang.

This year's edition of the ENCATC Digital Congress dives into how the COVID-19 crisis has severely affected the cultural and creative sectors and explores the fluid nature of the role of the artist amidst the current scenario(s). It aims to provide a space for encounters to learn from leading experts, get to common questions and look for common answers that may help all actors in the cultural management and policy sphere navigate uncharted waters.
