Postponement of the 6th Symposium of the ICTM Study Group on Performing Arts of Southeast Asia


New Dates: 13th-21st March 2021

 The PASEA 2020 Local Arrangements Committee (LAC) and the PASEA Executive Committee (EC) express their concern as the coronavirus continues to spread, causing challenges regarding health, travel plans as well as financial matters. 

With great concern for member safety, potential difficulties with local and international travel and other issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the LAC and the EC have decided to postpone the 2020 Symposium (originally scheduled for late July-early August) to 13th-21st March 2021. With importance on face-to-face meetings, the committees agreed to continue with our established approach to symposia but additionally provide asynchronous online communication for those unable to attend the symposium in Myanmar due to the COVID-19 situation.    

Best regards, we hope all stay safe and stay well during these difficult times.
