Visiting Arts: Asia-Europe Newsletter


In September 1998, this new, informal quarterly was launched with a view to encouraging and facilitating creative collaboration between Asia and Europe and keeping artists and arts practitioners from both regions fully apprised of the latest developments in Asia-Europe cultural exchange. With the emphasis firmly on practicality and ease of distribution, the Newsletter will be distributed by fax and e-mail to key individuals and organizations, backed up by a printed version for distribution to those without fax or e-mail facilities.
Regular features in the Newsletter will include information on Asian arts networks, databases, web-sites; information regarding festivals, seminars, conferences and other major events at which Asian arts and culture are showcased; news about cross-cultural collaborations including proposed Asia-Europe projects seeking partners; case-studies of artist-led exchange programmes where the emphasis is on process rather than product; examples of good practice in the contextualization of traditional Asian art forms; special features on contemporary Asian arts; news about Asian diaspora communities in Europe and their cultural activities; and information about key sources of funding.
We welcome all contributions. If you have information regarding planned or forthcoming exchange programmes with the Asia-Pacific region for inclusion in the newsletter, please forward this to:
