They also focused on other topics like content curation, programming trends, and over-arching topics such as funding, investment, marketing and PR, and arts infrastructure.
Mumbai has established itself as being the cultural centre of the country. This vibrant city, filled with arts and creativity will be hosting EARS on Mumbai again this year.
What is EARS?
EARS was set up in 2012 in order to facilitate the connection and networking of creative industry professionals from European and Asian countries. They believe that the success of the creative industries is dependent on how well the creators understand their local communities and also the cultural differences. EARS provides a platform for these artists to get together, network, communicate, discuss issues surrounding their industry, and also showcase their art. EARS has organised events in Helsinki, Beijing, Shanghai, and Mumbai till now.
The mission of EARS is to help build and foster relationships between creative professionals, and to connect the fastest growing creative industry market, Asia, to the rest of the world.
