SEAD is a programme co-created by Mekong Cultural Hub and the British Council which creates space for cultural practitioners to reflect on how their work in arts and culture can contribute to sustainable development within South East Asia through their individual and collective leadership. 

Each year we will select ten fellows from ten countries: Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Taiwan and the United Kingdom. 

The programme has four main gatherings spread over a one-year period where fellows get together. Each gathering takes place in a different country and has a unique purpose: exchange, create, share then reflect.
