‘Asia-Europe Cultural Festival: Cultures Connect’


The Asia-Europe Cultural Festival titled Cultures Connect is a multidisciplinary arts festival taking place on 26 & 27 November 2022 in Brussels, Belgium. A public arts festival, Cultures Connect, is co-organised by the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) and the European Union.

This year, the festival will present a programme comprising a film screening, music performance and dialogue forum at the Centre for Fine Arts-Brussels (Bozar). We are honoured to have the support of Casa Asia (Spain) and the Ministry of Culture & Fine Arts of Cambodia in presenting this edition.

Over the last two years, the global uncertainties as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic paused the possibility of physical interactions. These times of global change have underscored the importance of cooperation and mutual understanding between Asia and Europe. In the spirit of enhancing cultural connections between Asia and Europe, the Asia-Europe Cultural Festival aims to promote people-to-people connectivity between Asia and Europe in the field of arts and culture, thereby enhancing cultural partnership through deeper connections and meaningful collaborations.
