Kawee Pakka Thong
The Bank continued the Kawee Pakka Thong
(Golden Pen Poet) project, a workshop celebrating the art of poetry, for the fifth consecutive year, to support and inspire university students to improve their skills and continue writing poetry, another Thai art and cultural treasure. Famous poets led by Mr. Naowarat Phongphaiboon, a national artist in literature, shared their knowledge and experience for students from Thailand’s five regions. The students were invited to submit their poetry to a contest at the end of the workshop whereby experts selected the best works from each region. More than 3,000 students have joined the project so far.
In addition, the Bank organized a special seminar called Meet S.E.A. Writers 2016-2019 with 25 authors from nine ASEAN countries who have won S.E.A. Write awards in the last three years. More than 200 people attended the seminar.
