SEAMEO’s call for Cultural Week Video Discussions

In celebration of SEAMEO's Golden 50th Anniversary, the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization is inviting students, teachers and schools in Southeast Asian countries to learn the cultural heritage practices of Southeast Asian countries during 2-6 November 2015 by visiting their YouTube channel. View the videos and stand the chance to win US$200 and more prizes.

The videos show the hard work that students and teachers of registered primary and secondary schools from across Southeast Asia have put in documenting their local intangible cultural heritage practices such as dance, songs, crafts and dishes. Following the video, there will be a mini-essay question about the videos (max. 300 words).


Timetable: Videos will be launched on YouTube

Day 1 (Nov 2, Mon): Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia and Lao PDR

Day 2 (Nov 3, Tues): Malaysia (Part 1/2)

Day 3 (Nov 4, Wed): Malaysia (Part 2/2)

Day 4 (Nov 5, Thurs): Myanmar and Philippines

Day 5 (Nov 6, Fri): Thailand, Vietnam


It is recommended that videos are shown at a school assembly or in school classrooms across SEAMEO member countries. Following the video viewings, teachers can initiate a discussion on the 'mini-essay' question posted as a comment from SEAMEO SPAFA. More information can be found in the SEAMEO viewing guidelines.
