Hello Asia


Looking for East Asia’s most inspiring social innovators, change makers and creators!

Amsterdam based production company New Heroes is looking for inspiring people and projects in cities across East Asia to interview and film for the international documentary series Hello Asia.

Hello Asia is a cross discipline media art project connecting young innovators of Asia and Europe. The documentary explores how social innovation driven by the creative millennial or the post 80’s and 90’s generation creates new global common ground.

From February – July 2018 we will interview young key figures active in various fields and showcase their projects based in several East Asian cities, such as (but not limited to) Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei, Seoul, Tokyo.

The Hello Asia creator profile

  • young people aged between 20 and 40 from various disciplines or creative cross-disciplines
  • with an idea on how to tackle urgent social issues in (mega)cities, such as social cohesion and civil society, health care and aging populations, environment and energy, social inequality, education or any other issues shared by this upcoming generation challenged to shape a shared global world.
  • a running project in which they apply their ideas
  • they must speak English
