From the organizer:

Meeting Point 2024 on Art and Social Action in Asia is organized by Mekong Cultural Hub, with the co-hosting cooperation of Heritage Space and the Vietnam National Institute of Culture and Arts Studies (VICAS), and the participation of venue partner of the Temple of Literature Quoc Tu Giam.

2024 marks the third time Mekong Cultural Hub has organized Meeting Point 2024 on Arts and Social Action in Asia with the theme “Perspective from the Grassroots”. This is a special edition – the first time there has been a large-scale in-person meet-up as part of the program, that has at least 100 cultural practitioners from 15 countries in Asia coming together.

The Grand Opening on March 21st will include an introduction to the arts and culture ecosystem in Vietnam from co-organizer, VICAS (National Vietnam Institute of Culture & Art Studies), followed by a roundtable discussion ‘Caught in the Middle’ between three Southeast Asian organizations initiated from the ground up to work on gaps in funding and policy in their local arts ecosystems. This will be followed by a reception and a live performance. Days two and three will take place at the Temple of Literature campus, providing a unique cultural and historical context in which to have our exchanges. The program will be a mix of plenary and parallel sessions.
