Greetings from the Chair


The Federation for Asian Cultural Promotion (FACP) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO), currently registered in Singapore. FACP promotes networks for arts administrators and fosters understanding of the rich cultural heritage of Asia around the world. It was initiated in 1979, and founded in 1981.

FACP has a long history of 37 years. Before, the FACP was only a friendly craft where friends gather together to share the same passion in music and performing arts. Decades have passed and it is now the time for a change to a new era to accomplish FACP’s goals of cultural strategy and cultural exchanges between Asian cities.

We have goals that we need to achieve in a professional way. We need to work together to build up an influential organization that can give the opportunity to educate children more about music.

FACP is a unique organization in Asia where people from the performing arts industry, orchestras, concert venues, artist management, conservatories, music schools and the like, are gathering together to build networks and as well as to exchange information and ideas.

FACP holds an annual conference hosted by different Asian cities. By providing a warm meeting place, it aims at facilitating international touring and artistic issues and challenges facing the arts industry for arts and artist management, cultural entrepreneurs, and leaders. This time-honored organization draws numerous participants and observers as the most important culture-promotion organization in Asia.

The Asian Gems in the Arts segment

An annual and anticipated activity of the #FACP Conference is the Asian Gems in the Arts segment. This year, 7 member cities were represented: Beijing (The Jiangzhou Drum Orchestra), Taipei (dancer Chien Wei Wu who performed to electronica and live drumming by Yin Chun Chen to the music of Yiu Kwong Chung), Manila (Kabataang Gitarista), Tokyo (soprano Yukie Ishioka, tenor Kazuaki Sawasaki and pianist Yuhi Ozaki), Hong Kong (Yat Po Singers), Seoul (soprano Jungwon Park and the Sung Jung Trio) and host Kuala Lumpur (Rhythm in Bronze).

The repertoire ranged from modernized ethnic to dance with electronica and live drumming, from classical to folk and a capella. The audiences composed of not just the governors, members, speakers and organizers but the public who bought tickets were simply riveted!










The Announcement of Conference 2016

The Federation for Asian Cultural Performance begins its 34th annual conference in the UNESCO world heritage city of George Town in Malaysia.

The Board of Governors had an initial meeting to brainstorm about membership and the conference cities for the next 3 years.

Cocktails and dinner followed for the Governors, members, delegates, speakers, organizers and sponsors. Penang is known for excellent cuisine and a sampling of many gastronomic dishes were part of the buffet.

From dinner, everyone was bussed to the Dewan Sri Pinang or Civic Center for the Asian premiere of "Triptych" by the renowned modern circus troupe Les 7 Doigts of Canada.
