Mobility First! – ASEF Cultural Mobility Initiative


Cultural mobility, whether for work, co-production or participation in a seminar or residency, is integral to the practice and career of artists and cultural professionals.

With this in mind, the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) has launched Mobility First!, a new fund to connect Asia and Europe.

The goals of the programme are to support and increase the bi-directional mobility of artists and cultural professionals between Asia & Europe; and support opportunities for people-to-people encounters that will form the basis of long-term alliances among Asian and European artists and arts organisations.

The application is on a rolling basis, but the deadline for the first round of 2017 applications is 15 September 2017.
