LIKHA ASYA 1 is a cross-cultural exchange of experiences and expertise in the creative industries, community theater and arts, and community-based tourism between the LIHOK BISAYA and other Philippine groups, and similar groups in Asia striving for sustainable livelihoods through tourism.
Twenty tourism, arts, and heritage workers from Asian countries will be sharing insights and expertise in the creative ingenuity of the ASIAN peoples in the various aspects of eco-cultural tourism in Cambodia, Indonesia, Japan, Thailand and the Philippines. Delegates are key personalities from both the civil society and governance sectors in the field of ecological-cultural tourism.
The LIKHA ASYA envisions to:
• Demonstrate the experience of the Asian countries in the field of community-based cultural tourism, community theater and the creative industries;
• Provide a venue for a dynamic sharing of ideas, insights, skills among the ASIAN region frontliners of the culture and tourism industry;
• Provide a forum for planning future collaboration and exchange.
