ASEF culture360 is proud to launch Creative Responses to Sustainability – Singapore Guide.
Creative Responses to Sustainability is part of a new series of guides looking at creative responses to sustainability in different countries in Asia. The first in the series, the Singapore Guide maps cultural initiatives across Singapore engaging with social and environmental issues. Commissioned by ASEF culture360 and authored by Yasmine Ostendorf, the initiator of the EU funded network Green Art Lab Alliance (GALA), this guide will feature a directory of the 20 most pioneering and significant cultural organisations in Singaporecontributing to social and environmental change through their artistic practice.
The second guide for Korea has been presented this month in Gwangju, Korea at the 8th ASEF Public Forum on Creative Cities in Asia and Europe – Cities: Living Labs for Culture? and will be soon available for free download on ASEF culture360. Research for the Korea and Singapore Guides is supported by the Mondriaan Fund. Other country guides will follow in 2016.
These new guides build on the discussions at the GALA / Green Art Lab Alliance and ASEF’s engagement with the topic of artists and climate change in global dialogues around environmental sustainability through itsConnect2Culture programme (2008-2011).
