An initiative of LASALLE College of the Arts, the network was formed in 2012 as a way to stimulate international inquiry and research in this sector in order to contribute to a better understanding of the unique factors contributing to the study of arts management and cultural policy in the Asia Pacific region. The production of research and new knowledge through this network will, in the long term, contribute to the reservoir of arts knowledge in the Asia Pacific region, without losing the global perspective. We are delighted to organize the 3rd ANCER conference, particularly with our 2016 focus on Creative Connections, and to share our knowledge and experience with a global community. With a strong focus on leadership and entrepreneurship throughout our work, we especially want to engage arts managers and cultural innovators in the ANCER dialogue, and to bring practical knowledge and experience to research and knowledge production.
