Key objectives of the measure:

The Asia project is meant to increase the presence of Polish culture in Asian countries, including in particular China, the Republic of  Korea and Japan.

In Hong Kong Teatr Dramatyczny put on the "Persona. Marilyn" spectacle by Krystian Lupa and Teatr Polski from Bielsko-Biała put on "Zbrodnia", directed by Ewelina Marciniak, at the Seoul Performing Arts Festival in the Republic of  Korea. The Polish jazz artists, including Anna Maria Jopek, Maciej Obara, Marcin Masecki and Pink Freud played at the Jarasum International Jazz Festival in South Korea, the Tokyo Jazz Festival and the New Polish Music Festival in Japan. As part of the Asia Project, Polish culture was presented in Hong Kong, Singapore, Burma, India and Taiwan.[1]
