Photographer for KONNECT ASEAN

Terms of Reference


KONNECT ASEAN is one of the ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community projects that is supported by the ASEAN – ROK Cooperation Fund (AKCF). The programme addresses the Strategic Plan for Culture and Arts 2016-2025 of the Senior Officials Meeting on Culture and Arts by contributing to the realization of strategic priority no. 4.1, which is to encourage a multi-stakeholder approach in promoting an ASEAN mind-set and identity to increase the appreciation for ASEAN’s histories, arts, traditions and values. At the same time, KONNECT ASEAN addresses the work plan of ASEAN-ROK Plan of Action, 2016-2020 by promoting cooperation in the area of culture and arts.

One of the activities of KONNECT ASEAN is the ASAN Commemorative Publication. The inaugural publication aims to promote art collections that are currently displayed at ASEAN Gallery at the new building of ASEAN Secretariat (ASEC). To commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the ASEAN Gallery taking place next year, a publication that highlights the achievements of ASEAN Gallery will be an excellent catalyst for educating and creating awareness of ASEAN among art lovers, the diplomatic service and the wider ASEAN Community. The publication will highlight the role of the ASEAN Gallery and ASEC as platforms that bring ASEAN closer to the people.

The publication is expected to have high educational value and can easily be accessed by broader audience. Additionally, the design and packaging of the publication will also be optimised so that it ca be used as a diplomatic gift and displayed in major libraries and archives across Asia.
