This year, in conjunction with the Federation for Asian Cultural Promotion (FACP) Annual Conference, Weiwuying's International Symposium and Academy for Creative Producers invite presenters, art managers, artists and other experts across the Asia-Pacific region to engage in dialogues and support artists.
As a result of the pandemic, the first half of 2020 saw the devastation of countless industries worldwide. During these challenging times, arts institutions have been brainstorming possible solutions – how should the arts industry cope with the drastic changes to global socio-economic conditions creatively?
