The workshop aims to share information about the Memory of the World (MoW) programme with stakeholders from Southeast Asia, and to support them in identifying potential moving images,
sound recordings and other audio‐visual works for potential inscription on MoW registers.
Southeast Asia is home to a rich audio‐visual heritage closely tied to regional and national identities, history and cultures. But there is a lack of representation of this heritage on national, regional and international Memory of the World (MoW) registers.

The workshop aims to address this challenge by sharing information about MoW with stakeholders from the region, and to support them in identifying potential moving images,
sound recordings and other audio‐visual works for potential inscription on MoW registers.
