News | Mapping of Asian Collections, an ASEMUS Project


ASEMUS (Asia-Europe Museum Network), a cross-cultural network of Asian and European museums, is currently developing a mapping project of museums and their collections. The project is part of the network's focus in the promotion of "mutual understanding through collaborative activities" and "facilitating the sharing and use of museum collections". The project "will focus on three areas; the Mapping of Asian Collections, the Mapping of museum professionals and expertise and the Mapping of museum-related projects and engagements across Asia and Europe. The initial phase of the Mapping Project will focus on the Mapping of Asian Collections." See Mapping Project official site for details.

As a member of ASEMUS, NUS Museum facilitates the listing of Southeast Asian university museums with collections of Asian art into the project. We will welcome suggestions and feedback.
