ASEF’s cultural heritage exhibition arrives in Singapore

Project Updates


4 Jun 2012

The Singapore leg of “Shared Heritage: As we see it” – A travelling exhibition was officially launched at the National University of Singapore (NUS) Museum (11 May 2012). The opening was attended by diplomatic corps, artists and students.

ASEF Governors, representing ASEM member states, visited the Exhibition (19 May 2012) as part of a cultural tour under 28th ASEF Board of Governors Meeting programme. They appreciated the hard work of the participants of the 17th ASEF University (AU17) in putting together this multimedia presentation on cultural heritage.

The Governors enjoyed the photos and videos representing the shared cultural heritage of Asia and Europe. They felt it was interesting to see the stories behind each photograph – how the two regions have had an influence on each other and on people’s daily lives.

On 22 May 2012, a group of students from the National University of Singapore (NUS) visited the Exhibition. They are under the tutelage of Associate Professor Barnard Turner from the NUS. According to one of the students: “The photos were insightful and showed a different aspect of the country that I have not seen before”.

During their visit, representatives from the Rose Borromeo Spanish Dance School made a presentation on the art of Flamenco – a UNESCO-recognised intangible heritage. Through interactions with the dancers, the students experienced Flamenco’s rhythms and moves.

In partnership with the NUS Museum, the exhibition went on display until 13 June 2012.  |  See photos of the exhibition here   |
