Our space is at the heart of the local art community of Chiang Mai and provides a focal point for local artists. The residency program will invite international artists, working in any medium, into this environment to focus on mutual learning, process, participation and creative education.

The residency concentrates on using collaborative practice to generate new work and new audiences and allows time for artists to develop their artistic practice and further their careers.

We aim to support the production of ideas and art works to develop understanding between two cultures. We expect innovation and collaborative relationships to blossom from this project and actively benefit the individual artist as well as the creative communities.

The residencies will be for at least one month. Each residency will be tailored to the individual artists.
