ASEF has recently launched the ASEF Cultural Mobility Initiative. Entitled Mobility First!, this new scheme aims to increase people-to-people encounters among cultural professionals in Asia and Europe through travel support, with a particular focus on balanced cultural exchanges among the 51 ASEM countries.
The call is open to artists, cultural professionals and arts organisations from all ASEM countries. It closes on Friday, 15 September 2017. Selection criteria include support to new and under-represented ASEM countries as well as relevance of arts events to be attended.
