PROGRAM: Knowledge, Networks, and Policy
AIMED AT: Arts managers, researchers, and policymakers
In January 2016, we brought 100 arts managers, cultural researchers, and policymakers from 20 countries to Phnom Penh for the third conference of the Asia-Pacific Network for Cultural Education and Research (ANCER). ANCER is a network that promotes research in the arts sector, focusing on arts management and cultural policy in the Asia-Pacific region.
For three days, delegates aged from 20 to 70, from Ministries, grassroots collectives, and NGOs took part in sessions exploring Vitality and Viability: Arts Ecosystems in Asia. We developed this theme through conversations with the arts community in Cambodia.
