Contemporary Art in Central Asia

Review of the Central Asia Arts & Culture Programme

The Central Asian Arts and Culture Programme (CAACP) is the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) regional programme covering Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. 

The objective of the 2018-2019 review was to analyse CAACP’s approach, intervention strategies, performance and outcomes. 


Projects-Direct.Net interviewed the Programme Managers, partners and projects, made field trips to project locations, rehearsals, productions and exhibitions and held peer review meetings with non-recipient cultural stakeholders.

The Evaluation Team included Dutch contemporary artist Jan Van Esch.
