This study aimed to understand how adding ASEAN culture and arts to multicultural education affected a large class of 124 students in the teacher education program. I chose participants using purposive sampling. I asked specific questions during interviews to get information. I used thematic analysis to find patterns and insights in the data. The findings show that ASEAN culture and arts positively affect students. They help increase understanding, tolerance, and appreciation among people with different backgrounds. The interviews captured how cultural elements and the educational environment interact, showing the richness of ASEAN's culture. This research highlights the potential to blend ASEAN culture and arts into educational frameworks, creating classroom harmony. The study affirms that adding diverse cultural elements improves the academic experience, promoting unity and inclusivity. The interdisciplinary pedagogical approach emerges as a critical aspect, emphasizing the need for a holistic integration of culture and arts in education. The transformative power of ASEAN culture and arts extends beyond theory, becoming evident in observable changes in student behaviors, attitudes, and academic performance. The study shows improvements in critical thinking, creativity, cultural sensitivity, and increased engagement with coursework. Detailed case studies illustrate how students apply insights from ASEAN Arts in practical contexts, demonstrating real-world impact. Valuable strategies for reinforcing intercultural awareness in educational settings are integrated, including recommendations for curriculum adjustments, incorporating diverse perspectives in teaching materials, and implementing experiential learning opportunities alongside ASEAN Arts.
