ASEF supports Eurasian Creaspace Networking | China, Spain

Eurasian Creaspace Networking

Eurasian Creaspace Networking (ECN) will bring 5 European and 5 Asian cultural managers respectively to Kunming (China) on 20-23 September and Valencia (Spain) on 23-26 October 2016. They will exchange good practices with local cultural professionals, academics and policy-makers. Asian creative spaces from China, India, Indonesia, Japan and the Philippines will be represented in Valencia while European creative spaces from France, Italy, Spain and United Kingdom will be showcased in Kunming.

The project focuses on small and mid-size creative spaces in the creative industries with a special attention on cultural planning approach. Through study visits and workshops in Kunming and Valencia, selected cultural managers will meet city administrators and share good governance skills and experiences for better smart local cultural planning. The project’s main objective is to strengthen the international network of small-scale formal and informal creative spaces. The results of the meetings in China and Spain will be published as best practices for space, creativity and innovation in managing small creative spaces.

Eurasian Creaspace Networking is supported by ASEF through the ASEF Creative Networks programme. Project partners include: Culture Industry Institute, Yunnan University (China), and Econcult at the University of Valencia (Spain).
