The 6th Asia-Europe Art Camp is organised by Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) in partnership with International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA2008).

The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) advances mutual understanding and collaboration between the people of Asia and Europe through intellectual, cultural, and people-to-people exchanges. These exchanges include conferences, lecture tours, workshops, seminars and the use of web-based platforms. The major achievement of ASEF is the establishment of permanent bi-regional networks focused on areas and issues that help to strengthen Asia-Europe relations. Established in February 1997 by the partners of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM), ASEF reports to a board of governors representing the ASEM partners. ASEF is the only permanent physical institution of the ASEM process. Since 1997, the Foundation has initiated projects engaging 14,000 individuals from Asia and Europe. ASEF works in partnership with other public institutions and civil society actors to ensure its work is broad-based and balanced among the partner countries.   

The Cultural Exchange Department (CE) of ASEF seeks to provide young artists and cultural professionals with a unique environment for dialogue that can evolve into positive artistic interventions, dynamic cultural networks and cultural policy development in and between Asia and Europe. CE’s areas of co-operation are young artists’ exchange (new media, photography, dance and music), process oriented platforms and networks (museums, independent cinema and autonomous cultural centres), dialogue on policy and culture, and a vision for an Asia-Europe Cultural Portal (Culture360).

International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA), initiated in 1988, is the world’s premier media arts event for the critical discussion and showcase of creative productions applying new technologies in interactive and digital media. Held biannually in various cities throughout the world, this migratory event is being held in Asia for the second time in its history, after Singapore successfully secured this bid.

ISEA 2008 will consist of an internationally juried media art exhibition, a peer reviewed academic conference and various invited exhibitions, workshops and partner events. Hosting ISEA 2008 represents both an incredible opportunity for Singapore team to define, shape and affect media and cultural developments in Singapore, as well as in the Asian region and beyond. It seeks to include as many culturally diverse perspectives from the Asian region to encourage cross-cultural dialogues on the possibilities and opportunities of media technologies globally.
