Event Details

The ASEAN Youth Cultural Forum is an integral part of the ASEAN University Network’s (AUN) youth-focused initiatives. Its main purpose is to encapsulate the essence of ASEAN’s cultural heritage, its influences, and its evolution in order to foster greater understanding and appreciation of the concept of ‘ASEANness.’ This forum serves as a vibrant platform for celebrating the diversity and commonalities within the ASEAN+3 region through meaningful dialogues centered around artistic and cultural experiences. The inaugural edition of the ASEAN Youth Cultural Forum was held in 2003, hosted by De La Salle University in the Philippines. Since then, it has been organized annually, with AUN member universities taking turns to serve as hosts. In 2007, in alignment with the ASEAN+3 Higher Education Policy Dialogue, it was decided to establish the ASEAN+3 University Network and enhance student mobility by expanding various ongoing activities, including the AUN Educational Forum, the Young Speakers Contest, and the ASEAN Youth Cultural Forum. As a result, the ASEAN Youth Cultural Forum successfully evolved into the ASEAN+3 Youth Cultural Forum. The transformation commenced in the “11th ASEAN and 1st ASEAN+3 Youth Cultural Forum” held at Universiti Malaya, Malaysia, which marked the first occasion when delegates from China, Japan, and Korea were invited to participate.
