STA hosts "The Art and Culture of Belief in Thailand"

STA will host the National Museum Volunteers 71st Annual Lecture Series each covering an aspect of Thailand’s religious development.

NMV

St Andrews International School Bangkok will host the NMV 71st  Annual Lecture Series "The Art and Culture of Belief in Thailand" on Thursday November 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd from 9:30 am to 12 pm.

Thailand's religious tolerance over the centuries has given rise to a unique cultural and artistic expression across the nation. Each lecture in the NMV's 71st Annual Lecture Series will explore a different religion or belief and examine the shape it has taken in this country. Overall, the series hopes to discover how these different aspects blend, resulting in the beautiful diversity that is Thailand.

NMV's guest speakers, who have been carefully selected for their knowledge and expertise, have been invited to share with the audience their love for their chosen area of interest.

NMV will have 7 lectures, each covering an aspect of Thailand’s religious development. NMV looks forward to welcoming you each Thursday of November.
