earlier this year we were approached to give suggestions for institutions in Pakistan that provide scholarships and funding to artists to the organisation “Asia-Europe Foundation” (ASEF). They have published their results now here in an attempt to map funding possibilities in Asia. You may find the details on their site.
If you have additional ideas, do let them know, they are looking for a continuously updated site. If you have comments about funding and economical prospects in general for artists (especially how that developed in recent years and how it has developed in line with the increasing wealth of the urban areas) we would be most happy to hear (and publish) your thoughts.
