Tokyo University of the Arts and its partners are launching the Asian Animation Education Network in 2022. This event includes a kickoff symposium that will discuss ways to improve higher education for animation in Asia and ASEAN countries and what it could help achieve in the international film culture. This development is based on over a decade of collaboration between Tokyo University of the Arts, Korea National University of Arts, and Communication University of China including the Co-work project where graduate students of animation created short animated films together.
