Report of the World Heritage in Young Southeast Asian Hands Second Sub-Regional Workshop: Introducing the Arts for Teaching on the Historic Environment

This report begins by outlining the purpose and objectives of the Vigan workshop. Following this outline is a summary of the theory behind the "Art and the Historic Environment" approach and a discussion and description of the major events and activities which took place during the seven-day workshop in Vigan.


The various activity sheets that were designed during the workshop are then described (the "Vigan Heritage Education (HEart) Art Activity Sheets"). The mid-term reports by each of the participating countries of the sub-region of their four-year action plans are then included in a summarized form and the revised action plans are presented.


The report concludes by outlining the future directions of the World Heritage Education Project, including the key themes discussed at the 2003 World Heritage in Young Hands (WHYH) Planning Meeting in Paris. Summaries of the recommendations from two of the most recent World Heritage Youth Forums, Karlskrona 2001 and Rhodes 2003, are also provided which, along with the key themes from the WHYH Planning Meeting, will be of use to guide countries in the implementation of the World Heritage Education Project, particularly in the preparation of new action plans for the next phase of the project.
