Initiated by the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) through its online portal culture360.org, these 20 mobility funding guides are a concrete output of the mapping of funding opportunities for international cultural exchange in 18 countries in Asia. The research was conducted with the cooperation of Korea Arts Management Service-KAMS, Japan Center, Pacific Basin Arts Communication-PARC, Tokyo Performing Arts Market-TPAM and Arts Network Asia-ANA.
The main objectives of the mapping are to make available online, in a transparent way, the existing information on funding for the international mobility of artists and cultural operators in Asia and to give input to funders on how to fill in the existing gaps in funding for international cultural exchange in Asia.
Produced on the model of the Guide to funding opportunities for the international mobility of artists and culture professionals in Europe, these guides list national resources, when available, and regional and international sources of funding – be they public or private. Only regular opportunities accessible online are listed; funds for which information is only available offline, not based on open calls, and ad hoc or short-term funding are not included.
Apart from the mobility funding guides focused on the respective 18 Asian ASEM countries, you can also find two additional guides, one focused on Asia and another one on funding opportunities open to any nationality.
Each guide includes a general introduction and additional weblinks. You may also consult the general introduction of the mapping of funding opportunities for international cultural exchange in Asia for a full overview of the methodology and scope of the research.
These guides are a first attempt to make available online mobility funding opportunities and are by no means complete. The aim is to update them on a regular basis through further research and input from the field, based on the user's feedback.
