Res Artis received support to develop the Asia-Europe Creative Residency Network.
Cultural networks are emerging as an increasingly significant channel of international collaboration in arts and culture. Recognising the potential of this growing phenomenon to nurture sustainable professional linkages between Asia and Europe, the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) launched the ASEF Creative Networks initiative in 2013.
This initiative encourages the establishment of new networks linking Asia and Europe as well as the development of sustainable projects by existing bi-regional networks. Selection is through a competitive open call for proposals.
Res Artis is glad to announce that we have been one of the three selected projects (from a pool of 54 proposals) for support in 2014 through the first edition of ASEF Creative Networks.
The Asia-Europe Creative Residency Network will be established as a sub-network of Res Artis, to specifically promote more cultural exchange between Asia and Europe.
The first meeting of the new network will take place in Melbourne, Australia. Project partners include the Res Artis Foundation, the Japan Foundation Information Center, Asialink (Australia) and the National Association for the Visual Arts (Australia).
