Symposium: Creative Industries in East and Southeast Asia
The Japan Foundation & Birkbeck College’s Centre for Media, Culture and Creative Practices present
CREATIVE INDUSTRIES IN EAST AND SOUTHEAST ASIA
This symposium will bring together some of the world’s foremost experts to examine creative industries in East and Southeast Asia and how it is shaped by and shaping the global relation of power which is rapidly tilting towards the East. Spurred but no longer led by Japan, countries in East Asia have endeavored to catch-up with Western economies and increasingly compete against each other. The focus is no longer exclusively on manufacturing and productivity but has shifted to nurturing creativity and culture and becoming a branded cool nation. In this historical conjuncture, this symposium provides a fresh look at East Asia’s move up the global value chain, growing regional cooperation and competition, and unexpected trajectory and localization of the idea of creative industries, which originated in the UK.
