Asia-Europe Foundation > Call for articles for culture360.ASEF.org on #Peripheries
culture360.ASEF.org is an online platform offering up-to-date information on arts, culture & heritage from 51 countries in Asia & Europe. It is a website for artists, cultural professionals, policy makers and anyone interested in international cultural co-operation.
What type of articles/editorial content is ASEF looking for?
In recent years, the arts and cultural sector has been shifting away from discussions concerning capital cities and the cultural centres of countries, where most social and institutional resources are concentrated.
Increasingly so, there has been a trend in decentralisation, bringing artists, cultural professionals and art organisations who operate or occupy the peripheries in an urban society, at the centre of the conversation on arts & culture.
In this context, culture360.ASEF.org is looking to commission a series of articles related to the topic of peripheries, be it smaller cities, islands or rural areas that are geographically distant from the big cultural centres.
Who can apply?
Writers must be a national of an ASEM member country
Previous experience in writing articles is necessary
Knowledge or involvement in the Asian and European arts scene is an advantage
The writer will work in virtual capacity and need not be based in Singapore
Deadline: 15 May 2019
