This month's newsletter highlights the 7 projects supported by ASEF in the framework ofCreative Encounters: Cultural Partnerships between Asia and Europe, and ASEF Creative Networks which begins its first series of Asia-Europe partnerships this year.

From urban heritage to artist residencies and film workshops, the two programmes will cover an extensive range of disciplines and issues related to arts and culture in Asia and Europe.

In March, the Magazine section provides some insight on the latest cultural topics discussed during the 6th World Summit on Arts and Culture which took place in Santiago, Chile, earlier this year.

It also gives a voice to two key cultural players from Asia: Tan Boon Hui, Project Director of the Singapore Biennale 2013, and Makiko Yamaguchi, Director of the Tokyo Culture Creation Project. 

We wish you an enjoyable read!
