Asia Culture Center, 2nd ACC creative performance story contest
“Tell the stories of you who are living in Asia
The ACC seeks to discover materials for its original productions from the daily lives of people living across Asia, and use them to develop productions that touch the hearts of people in Asia and beyond. In this contest, we look for stories about goings-on in Asian societies, including daily issues, society, culture, politics, and the economy. We are looking forward to your participation.
