AAPAF launches new website and 2010 Intership Award

14 December 2009

Recently, the Association of Asian Performing Arts Festivals (AAPAF) has launched its new website giving great visibility to its activities and members. The website gathers all important information on the most dynamic festivals in Asia. Inaugurated in Singapore on 19 June 2004, the Association of Asian Performing Arts Festivals aims to recognise the growth of arts festivals in the Asian region; identify the potential advantages a regional festival network offers in co-sharing, commissioning, touring works, spin-offs in joint marketing efforts; providing a platform to connect with other networks and to access funding beyond the region. It currently comprises 12 Full Members and 19 Associate Members, among them the European Festivals Association (EFA). One of the initiatives of the Asian festivals association is the “AAPAF Internship Award”. First introduced in 2008, the annual international award is aimed at nurturing Asia-based professionals in festival and arts management by providing them meaningful internships in AAPAF’s network of member festivals. Applications for the 2010 Association of Asian Performing Arts Festivals (AAPAF) are now open to the public. Please find more information in the press release and on the AAPAF website.
