About Synergy International
Synergy International is a cultural think-tank. We work to support, establish, and grow the creative economy and the cultural and creative industries across Asia and Africa.
What does that mean? It means we develop policies, platforms, ideas, and projects that involve governments, key policymakers, people in the cultural and creative industries, corporates and the public to address complex dynamics of transformations in urban contexts.
We conduct conferences, festivals, seminars, workshops, with the participation of the public to re-articulate and refocus the role of art, culture, and creative economy in building livable cities, and engaged communities.
We explore, assess and invest continually, responding through multiple cultural and creative platforms to the evolving needs of fast-growing neighbourhoods, cities, urban spaces, and villages.
This enables us to explore the nuances and subtle approaches to creativity, culture, and places — one that is situated, not universal.
In addition, we believe in the power of our differences, cultural specificities, long-naps, good food, great friends, long conversations, expanding perspectives and a spirit of exploration.
