More info below and on projecthelloasia.com

Hello Asia is a multi media art project in search of common ground and a new shared narrative between the upcoming creative generations in East and West striving for global social progress.

In Hello Asia, New Heroes artistic director Lucas De Man (Ghent/Amsterdam) and theatre maker Hyunsin Kim (Berlin/Seoul) take you on their journey in search of inspiration. They explore how young change makers in Asia tackle urgent social issues in (mega)cities, such as Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei, Seoul and Tokyo.

What’s going on there? What can we learn from their ideas for social cohesion and civil society, health care and aging populations, environment and energy, social inequality, education, technology and the future?  And most importantly, where do we go from here together?

As a multi media project Hello Asia will take on many forms including an online documentary series, an international theater tour, vlogs and blogs.
