ASEF at the European Culture Forum 2015


Regrettably, on 24 November due to the recent high security alert in Brussels, the European Commission has cancelled the event.

The 2015 edition of the European Culture Forum takes place on 26-27 November at Flagey, Brussels. With the tagline "Talent and creativity for a stronger and more inclusive Europe", the Forum organised by the European Commission will bring together cultural policy makers, stakeholders, artists and cultural professionals, and will address some of the hottest topics for the sector at the moment. The programme will include a variety of formats: plenary panels focusing on the main aims of the European Agenda for Culture, as well as smaller, technical sessions on the work of the EU. The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) will take part in the panel discussion on "Culture in EU external relations: available and future instruments" at 2.30 pm on Friday 27 November. The session will focus on new actions that have been developed by the EU following the outcomes of the Preparatory Action on Culture in EU External Relations, which looked at the EU Neighbourhood countries and Strategic Partners over 2013-2014. In this context, ASEF will highlight its most significant initiatives to promote cultural cooperation between Asia and Europe. More about the Forum:
