The annual URP Forum which began in 2001 has been supported since 2012 by the Center of Excellence for Thai Music and Culture – CETMC.

see our Call for Papers page for this year’s theme and how to submit your abstract for consideration. 

Our forum creates a sharing space for scholars, researchers, graduate students, artists involved in visual art, design, music, the creative arts, performance studies, dance, cultural studies, ethnomusicology, and related disciplines such as creative arts therapies and urban planning seeking cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural practices aimed at fostering the sustainable development of vibrant, livable cities and the promotion of cultural continuity. Presentations tied to either the academic or wide vernacular interpretation of urban culture and the arts as a tool promoting community and individual well-being, health, and diversity are welcome.
