For a healthy cultural development, the nurturing and co-existence of a broad spectrum of cultural spaces, both big and small, private and public, is required to meet the social and cultural needs of a community. 

As part of the 'Asia Cultural Co-operation Forum', this symposium and workshop brings together professionals from some of the world's most important art organizations, from the major public museum to the smaller artist-run space, to discuss the importance of multiple platforms from which to communicate contemporary art today.
