This research seeks to support future partnerships and exchange by offering insights into the key trends and characteristics of the arts and technology sectors in North-east Asia.

Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea are home to rich, diverse and dynamic arts and technology ecosystems. In all three countries and territories, digital innovation in the arts is a government policy priority, which leads to the continuing development of new programmes, infrastructure and research.

The mapping and research in this report was undertaken by BOP Consulting, commissioned by the British Council, and completed in 2023. The report presents the findings of the research for each country, with a concluding chapter outlining trends and opportunities. These findings will be used by us to provide market insight to the relevant UK sectors and advise on how best to support professional and creative exchange between the UK and Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea in the arts and technology sectors.
