CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS : 8TH ASEM SUMMIT


Greetings from the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF).

I am writing to inform you of the Foundation’s upcoming Connecting Civil Society meeting (2-3 October 2010, Brussels) on the occasion of the 8th ASEM (Asia-Europe Meeting) Summit and to request you to disseminate the Call for workshop proposals (attached) among your networks.

Recognising the importance of bridging civil societies in Asia and Europe, ASEF will bring together representatives from various civil society groups in both regions to discuss issues of mutual concern, including arts and culture. The two-day meeting will comprise plenary sessions and thematic workshops, wherein participants will discuss current trends and events defining Asia-Europe dialogue and forecast emerging trends that could define future ASEM priorities.

The Asia-Europe Foundation will then convey the outcome of this consultation to the governments at the 8th ASEM Summit (4-5 October 2010, Brussels). As you are aware, ASEF was established by the ASEM process (the main multilateral channel for communication and dialogue between Asia and Europe since 1996) and remains its only physical institution.

Issues in arts and culture will form the focus of one of the workshops at Connecting Civil Society. We are presently inviting applications from interested organisations in Asia and Europe to host the Art and Culture Workshop around the following theme:

Cultural globalisation is altering our notions of identity as well as our social values. How can arts and culture play a positive role in this changing socio-political environment? How should cultural policies in Asia and Europe address the new challenges of a multicultural and market-oriented society?

Selected host organisations will be expected to prepare the intellectual work for the workshop in consultation with ASEF and in accordance with ASEF guidelines. ASEF will organise the venue and handle logistics in Brussels for the workshop. Complete details of the event and the workshop application form are enclosed as attachments. Deadline for applications is 02 April 2010.

We request you to kindly disseminate this information through your networks and assist us in reaching interested organisations.

If you require any clarifications or have any questions, please let me know. My co-ordinates are enclosed below.

Thank you!

Warm regards,
