Call for articles on cultural policy

culture360.org is looking for writers (cultural policy analysts, researchers, arts managers, artist, journalists)  to submit their proposals on the topic of cultural policy in Asia.

The aim of these articles is to improve the understanding of the cultural policy sector in Asia and to provide insight into the social and cultural context of the following Asian countries: Brunei, Cambodia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Pakistan, Philippines, and Singapore.

Articles should reflect on the following topics:

  • A selected “national” policy  (legislation, support/financing programmes, organization of public cultural institutions, etc) which reflects on the role of governments in developing cultural policies

  • A relevant case study which presents the participation or role of civil society (private cultural organizations, foundations, artists, etc) in cultural policy formulation

  • A report on conferences, seminars, events involving both public and private cultural policy actors and reflecting on cultural policy

  • An evaluation of the impact of national cultural policy strategies on cultural life and trends in a certain region or country and vice-versa.

  • Collaboration between cities in Asia and Europe or Asia-Asia on cultural policy formulation

The selected articles will be published under the Perspective section of culture360.org website.

Articles should be written in British English, in a journalistic style with a minimum length of 800 to a maximum of 1200 words.

Proposals should be submitted in the form of a short outline  of the subject together with a short biography/background note and a sample of similar writing before the 28th of February.

Proposal should be sent by email to Ramona Laczko: ramona.laczko(at)asef.org

The editorial team of culture360.org will evaluate the proposals and send email confirmation to selected writers by 15th of March.
