ASIAN Cross-Cultural Exploration Programme


    Application Package




    Background and Program Information:

    Asian Cross-Cultural Exploration (ACCE) Programme is a project between the ASEAN University Network and Multicultural Education and Research Institute (MERI), Yeungnam University. The programme intends to promote the exchanges and mutual understanding of ASEAN-Korean youths, and establish an on-line cultural community. This programme is composed of 3 sub-programmes. The first sub-programme is what can be called the ASEAN-Korean youths’ Asian

    Cross-Cultural Exploration (ACCE) Programme. This programme invites youths of ASEAN countries to the Republic of Korea (ROK), giving them an opportunity to exchange and reciprocate with youths of Korea. They will have the opportunity to explore the culture of Asia (music and food culture), to experience cultural diversity in this region, and to search for the possibility of creative harmony of Asian culture.

    The second sub-programme intends to manufacture a documentary film out of these exchange activities of ASEAN-Korean youths and distribute the digitized cultural contents for the cultural education of young people and general citizens of both ASEAN member countries and the ROK.


    Thirdly, the programme also includes a sub-programme which attempts to establish an on-line ASEAN-Korean cultural community by making the best use of youths who participate in the ACCE Programme.

    Thus, it is expected that this programme will contribute in its own way to the creation of East Asian community, particularly the socio-cultural pillar of the community, by enhancing the mutual understanding and awareness among the young peoples of ASEAN countries and Korea of each other’s culture.
