Greetings from the Asia-Europe Foundation!

The second edition of Mapping for Funding Opportunities for International Cultural Exchange in Asia comes nine months after the launch of the first edition, offering a number of relevant updates in the Asian region and beyond.
A guide for Bangladesh is also now available, listing national, regional and international funding opportunities for cultural mobility aimed at individuals from Bangladesh and also international applicants looking to practice there.
Initiated by the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) through its online portal, the 21 mobility funding guides are a concrete output of the mapping of funding opportunities for international cultural exchange in 19 countries in Asia.
The initial 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 the existing gaps in funding for international cultural exchange in Asia.

We hope that the guides are useful to our readers!
