Our artists in residence are currently working with a group of children on a new CRE8 collaborative project.

First of all, I am excited about my upcoming time here at the Thaillywood Artist Residency and grateful to be a part of this amazing overall Thaillywood experience. The first phase of DAS Project has already given us a brief idea of the potential that lies behind Thaillywood’s collaboration with local school Nongjetjai and CRE8 Foundation. But also, as an artist with a profound interest in new materials, I can’t imagine a place with more variety in materials than Thailand. As a first entry, I want to talk about a piece I...
