ArtsEquator is a ground-up initiative. We’re a non-profit organisation, committed to building an arts media that supports the arts ecosystem in Southeast Asia. We are, for now, entirely self-funded. We do however, pay all writers who write original pieces for us (admittedly a small fee for the moment) because we want to build sustainability, but not at the expense of the artists and writers we work with.  You can help by subscribing to our weekly newsletter to stay updated on all the new articles, essays, podcasts and links of the week. The more people join us, the stronger we become.

Add you email address to the “Weekly Newsletter”  to the right and please spread the word to others too.
