The Monsoon Society hosts a variety of resources and services that members may access, depending upon their association with specific cultural arts, organizations and communities. Member organizations of the Society may utilize those services to deliver beneficial content to their own members. Groups promoting SE Asian cultural arts may support their own activities or projects through the use of Monsoon’s resources.
Perhaps you are planning an event, looking for training gear, want to make costumes for a performance, or need space for a workshop.
