You are cordially invited to an upcoming Zoom webinar.
I hope you can make what will be a fascinating discussion around the state of education within ASEAN Countries and also the Arts/Film sectors that have been affected by Covid. Also how digital transformation is playing its role in ensuring its future. Schools are going back for many this week and yet many pupils will resume online learning for the coming weeks and perhaps months, how is this changing the mindset of publishing houses and film producers as well as art curators.
