The 7th ASEAN Youth Cultural Forum


Chulalongkorn Univesity, Burapha Univeristy and Mahidol University are co-hosting the 7th ASEAN Youth Cultural Forum under the theme “Percussion and Dance : Tradition Meets Contemporary” on 10-14 May 2009 in Thailand. The Forum programme is deliberately planned to capture the essence of ASEAN cultural heritage; its influences and development in order to promote better understanding and appreciation on the ASEAN culture.

The Forum would provide rare opportunity for ASEAN youths, especially those attached with arts and culture, in a way that knowledge and experiences gained from this participating would complement and be useful to their studies and personal interests.

Over 100 student participants from 15 member universities of the ASEAN University Network will bring their own distinct cultures to present at the opening ceremony on 11 May 2009 at Music Auditorium, College of Music, Mahidol University. The ASEAN youths will also be given a chance to attend various activities such as lecture and workshop on traditional and contemporary Thai music and dance, a one day excursion to the Grand Palace, Ancient City, and Bangpu.

On the last day, the students will be grouped for the rehearsal of their new creation of music and dance which they have learnt from the lecture and workshop. Their spectacular performances, deriving from the well-mixture of their own distinct characters and the unique Thai tradition will be presented to the audience at the closing ceremony on 14 May 2009 at Mahitaladhibesra Building, Faculty of Commerce and Accountancy, Chulalongkorn University.

Interested people are welcome to the event for free.
