E-Connector / Asia and Europe: Directory of Initiatives in the Culture and Creative Industries (CCIs)
Commissioned by ASEF culture360
ASEF culture360 published its first directory on Cultural and Creative Industries in Asia and Europe, which is part of E-Connector, a new series of online resources on the culture and creative industries, digitalization of arts and humanities, and cultural mobility in Asia and Europe.
The project was commissioned by ASEF culture360 and researched by On the Move, with contribution by the Luxembourg Agency for Cultural Affairs and Planting Rice.
The main goals of the E-Connector are to provide a clear snapshot of existing resources related to cultural and creative industries, digitalization of arts and humanities and cultural mobility, without duplicating existing initiatives; show the diversity of initiatives from networks to projects, magazines and platforms - the E-Connector reflects the industry in Asia and Europe and highlights any imbalances and gaps in access to knowledge; identify key resources that facilitate access to information within the art and cultural sector, and facilitate information monitoring for the content managers of websites, newsletters and social networks; and inspire artists, creators and other cultural stakeholders by sharing resources and free information through platforms and tools that encourage capacity building projects, for instance, to nurture creative entrepreneurship.
In the coming months, ASEF culture360 will publish a second directory on digitalization and an in-depth article and glossary on cultural mobility.
