"Arterial Network"-type network to launch in Asia
Given the potential of the Arterial Network, a similar initiative is being launched in Bangalore, India in mid-December to attempt to network artists and creative sector stakeholders in the region so that they may take collective action to advance their interests. One of the main actors in this initiative is HIVOS, a prime driver and donor partner of the Arterial Network in Africa. Other partners are the Open Society Initiative and the local partners are the Centre for the Study of Culture and Society. This meeting of cultural stakeholders in Asia is taking place under the working title "Culture and Civil Society Development in Asia - Connecting Divergent Asian Contexts.
