ArtsEquator is an arts media company that values and promotes Southeast Asian regional arts practice.
Since 2016, ArtsEquator has served Southeast Asia as its pioneer arts media website for developing arts writing and criticism. They have advocated for the value of quality critical art content, and helped build the capacity of a network of Southeast Asia critics, reviewers and writers.
Besides being the go-to online arts magazine in the region for reviews, features, interviews, podcasts and the ever popular online quizzes, they also created several initiatives and projects, including our Reviewing Courses, the Critics Live! series, and a number of critical writing residencies. The Asian Arts Media Roundtable (AAMR), which they launched in 2019, is a budding network of critics, writers, editors, publishers and content creators that will continue to be the backbone of their programmes. They have also conducted research in the region, with a focus on freedom of expression in the arts.
In 2023 they are researching, strategising and developing their new programme, which will return to focus on their commitment to developing critical writing in Southeast Asia.
