The first ASEANnale was a powerful mix of scholarship and artistry, bringing together the 2nd International Symposium on ASEAN Studies (ISAS) and the 1st Film and Multimedia Competition and Exhibition from February 28 to March 2 at the Asian Center, UP Diliman. ASEANnale is a combination of “ASEAN” and “bienniale.”
