SEAMEO-APCEIU | Telling Tales from Southeast Asia and Korea

Telling Tales from Southeast Asia and Korea in DVD is a joint production of the Asia-Pacific Centre of Education for International Understanding (APCEIU) and the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO) through the SEAMEO Secretariat and the SEAMEO Regional Centre for Archaeology and Fine Arts (SEAMEO SPAFA).

The Telling Tales from Southeast Asia and Korea in DVD presents 26 folktales from Southeast Asia and Korea told in native languages as well as in English. The stories were compiled and published in 2010 through an earlier collaboration between APCEIU and SEAMEO. Two new stories which were created by participating storytellers from Southeast Asia and Korea are the new additions to the collection in DVD format. The recording and production was held in November 2011 through the auspices of SEAMEO and APCEIU. Read about the SEAMEO-APCEIU Storytelling Workshop and Multimedia Material Production.

The Telling Tales from Southeast Asia and Korea in DVD comes with the following which are available in print and PDF:

  • Guide for Storytelling
  • Telling Tales from Southeast Asia and Korea -- Teacher's Guide

As a teaching and learning material, the Telling Tales from Southeast Asia and Korea in DVD aims at increasing awareness and appreciation of school children of their own countries' folktales and the oral literature of the region, which is in line with SEAMEO and APCEIU's shared goal of promoting education for intercultural understanding.
