SEA Junction is the core activity of the Foundation for Southeast Asia Studies and it contributes to its aim of fostering understanding and appreciation of Southeast Asia in all its socio-cultural dimensions --from arts and culture to the economy and development.
As the name indicates, “SEA Junction” is meant as an informal place of exchanges on Southeast Asia where people with an interest in SEA arts, cultures and societies can meet, share information, consult available resources, and read related literature at their leisure. The setting is that of an open reading room where a collection of books on Southeast Asia are hosted on a wide range of socio-cultural themes for public consultation. Selected crafts and arts of Southeast Asia are also displayed to give a glimpse of the cultural richness of the region. Targeted efforts are made to attract students and act as a learning center on regional topics for young people. Linkages with centers, museums and programs with a focus on Southeast Asia in Thailand and the region as well as in the United States and Europe are maintained to be prompt in exploiting opportunities of collaboration.
SEA-Junction further serves as a venue for speeches by/dialogues with visiting regional specialists (including artists and activists) as well as for small encounters and trainings on relevant topics. The program includes meetings, seminars, documentary screening, photo exhibitions, lectures and workshops. As an intermediary and facilitators, SEA Junction also manages resources for community and research programs in the region.
