Mobility First! - ASEF Cultural Mobility Initiative

ASEF Mobility First Banner



Since 1997, the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) has been signposting mobility information, connecting mobility funders & supporting the travel of cultural professionals to attend its events. In 2017, ASEF launched Mobility First!, a travel grant for artists & cultural professionals, which has since been recognised by UNESCO as a success story for multilateral cultural co-operation.
