Media Partnerships | 2023 Open call

Since 2012, culture360.ASEF.org has supported over 65 arts events  through media partnerships in Asia and Europe. We continue supporting on-site and virtual arts events across the 2 regions, through a variety of dedicated communication activities.  

Why a media partnership with  culture360? 

With over 330,000 unique visitors per year in 51 countries of Asia and Europe, culture360.ASEF.org has the capacity to increase the visibility and outreach of your arts events. If you are an arts organisation looking to reach out to new audiences or new regions/countries, we invite you to submit your proposal for a media partnership with us.  

What do we offer? 

culture360.ASEF.org offers 2 packages for selected arts event according to their size and capabilities. For small events we offer communication activities that are aimed to raising the visibility of the event and organisation beyond its national or regional focus. For established events, we will devise a co-marketing strategy that will target audience engagement and outreach.

  • One interview with the organisers, participants or speakers published on our website 
  • Curated posts and stories on our social media channels
