ANCER 2016

The 3rd ANCER conference


We organized the third conference of ANCER, the Asia-Pacific Network for Cultural Education and Research, on 14-16 January 2016. In partnership with Institut français du Cambodge and LASALLE College of the Arts, we hosted over 100 delegates from 20 countries for 3 days of discussion on the theme: Vitality and Viability: Arts Ecosystem in Asia.<o:p></o:p>

ANCER is an initiative of LASALLE College of the Arts, formed in 2012 as a way to stimulate international inquiry and research in the arts sector in order to contribute to a better understanding of the unique factors affecting the study of arts management and cultural policy in the Asia Pacific region. The production of research and new knowledge through this network will, in the long term, contribute to the reservoir of arts knowledge in the Asia Pacific region, without losing the global perspective.<o:p></o:p>

We were are delighted to organize the 3rd ANCER conference, particularly with our 2016 focus on Creative Connections, and to share our knowledge and experience with a global community. With a strong focus on leadership and entrepreneurship throughout our work, we especially wanted to engage arts managers and cultural innovators in the ANCER dialogue, and to bring practical knowledge and experience to research and knowledge production.<o:p></o:p>
