Compeung Artist-in-Residence Programme

The ComPeung Artist-in-Residence Programme is designed for local and international artists to live and work together with our team and the local community. Interested artists are encouraged to apply by providing ComPeung with a preliminary proposal of her/his/their art work or project. As a work-in-progress we understand that the proposed project might change in the process.

By living and working together in basic yet comfortable conditions with our team, the local communities and a broad spectrum of artists, the ComPeung program provides the resident artists with a wide range of exchanges, opportunities, experiences and possibilities. ComPeung envisions to be an open playground for dialogues, alternative contexts, experiments, explorations, and mutual learning. The aspired goal for ComPeung is to develop and expand into a network of artists and art organizations on local, regional and international levels.

Duration of Residency
The minimum stay is 1 month. Longer residencies can be negotiated depending on the proposed project and residency vacancies.

Residency Fee
30.000 THB per month
The residency fee covers the cost for accommodation, studio, 3 main meals per day (breakfast, lunch, dinner), transportation to/from Chiang Mai International airport and around Doisaket, local tour and bicycle, a part-time assistant and an English-Thai translator, organizing a small art event (both at ComPeung and related sites in Doisaket and Chiang Mai city).

Expenses Paid by Artists
Airfare, transportation, health insurance (strongly recommended), living expenses, work materials and any other expenses pertaining to the artist in residence's project.
