E-connector | Directory on Creative Industries in Asia and Europe
ASEF culture360 supports the publication of E-connector, a new series of online resources on the culture and creative industries, digitalisation of arts and humanities and cultural mobility in Asia and Europe. This project was commissioned by ASEF culture360 and researched by On the Move with the contribution of 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, digitalisation 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 to facilitate information monitoring for the content managers of websites, newsletters and social networks
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.
This first published directory is focused on Cultural and Creative Industries.
