Promoting interests on Southeast Asia and providing information on Southeast Asia's diverse cultures and histories, the SEASS, together with the Department of Southeast Asian Studies, has oganised various cultural and country-based events and projects in order to bring the Southeast Asian region to the NUS community. Past projects undertaken by the SEASS included a community service project in Pattani, South Thailand in 2003 which was supported by the Singapore International Foundation (SIF), various cultural trips to countries in the region as well as SEASS Alumni Night in 2007.

A key event which we organise each year is the "Southeast Asia Week", a mini-festival dedicated to all things Southeast Asia. Each year, a myriad of activities and events shaped by the creativity of SEASS members are organised during "Southeast Asia Week". Past events included a concert dedicated to Southeast Asian music, cultural/art themed exhibitions, film screenings, academic forums and discussions on Southeast Asian related issues such as human rights, politics and so on.

The SEASS hopes to expand its horizons by holding unique, refreshing and engaging events on Southeast Asia so that the NUS community can enjoy discovering Southeast Asia, the people, places and culture found in this vibrant and ever changing region.
