On the morning of 2 December 2022, SEAMEO SPAFA had the pleasure of welcoming UNESCO Bangkok‘s Communication and Information (CI) Unit to the SEAMEO SPAFA office.
The UNESCO Bangkok CI Unit delegation comprised Mr Joe Hironaka, Chief of Unit for CI, and Ms Linh Anh Moreau, who aside from being part of UNESCO Bangkok CI Unit is also Secretary General of Memory of the World Asia Pacific. In addition, Ms Moreau was the former Programme Officer at SEAMEO SPAFA so it was her way of connecting the two institutions of UNESCO Bangkok CI Unit and SEAMEO SPAFA.
During the meet and greet, Mr Joe Hironaka and Ms Linh Anh Moreau met with SEAMEO SPAFA Director, Mr Khemchat Thepchai, together with several other members of SEAMEO SPAFA. Possibilities for collaboration in documentary heritage activities were explored and although an initial meet, it bore fruitful and meaningful exchanges. Stay tuned to see what SEAMEO SPAFA and UNESCO Bangkok CI Unit will have in store in the near future as a collaborative project.
