This program is a discussion on current cultural and social practice collectives in East Asian cities. East Asian regions have had historical and cultural backgrounds contrary to those of the European and North American nations. A multitude of autonomous cultural and social spaces and multilayered networks have birthed in recent years contemplating alternative societies that practice labor without exploitation. On another level, these venues have served as factions to nurture experiments to open up the dialogue of creations.

"Collective Asia" creates a shared archive to capture the relationship between art and social practice in the Asian regions by gathering, collecting, translating, editing, confronting issues, and real voices of the people.

For this talk, we will begin with an introductory presentation and survey followed by a participatory exchange of information with the audience.
