The story of this E-connector started during the “Communication training and information sessions on cultural mobility”, hosted by the Luxembourg Agency for Cultural Affairs on 17-19 June 2014 in Luxembourg city, in cooperation with On the Move and with the support of the Asia Europe Foundation (ASEF) in the framework of the pilot programme on life long learning for cultural actors in Luxembourg (www.createyourfuture.lu
), cofunded by the European Social Fund. ASEF culture360 supports the publication of E-connector, a new series of online resources on the culture and creative industries, digitalisation of arts and humanities and cultural mobility in Asia and Europe. This project was commissioned by ASEF culture360 and researched by On the Move with the contribution of the Luxembourg Agency for Cultural Affairs

Why an E-connector ?
Download the E-connector – Creative Industries
- Provide a clear snapshot of existing resources related to cultural and creative industries, digitalisation of arts and humanities and cultural mobility without duplicating existing initiatives
- Show the diversity of initiatives from networks to projects, magazines and platforms. The E-connector reflects the industry in Asia and Europe and highlights any imbalances and gaps in access to knowledge
- Identify key resources that facilitate access to information within the art and cultural sector, and to facilitate information monitoring for the content managers of websites, newsletters and social networks
- Inspire artists, creators and other cultural stakeholders by sharing resources and free information through platforms and tools that encourage capacity building projects, for instance, to nurture creative entrepreneurship. This first published directory is focused on Cultural and Creative Industries.
