  • Description

    Description

    This is a sustainable development project in Koh Chang, a platform where people can see, experience and learn things differently and communicate deeply with multiple events and activities. A village welcomes and cooperates with all those who wish to enrich social good and sustainable future. We invest freely with various elements such as land art, permaculture, coworking space, an open-air museum and organic farm in order to achieve an inclusive society.

    To achieve that, we deeply optimize artistic elements to develop places with self-sufficiency and conservation. We work together with worldwide creators as well as locals for opening the cultural potential of the island, and eventually to share a creative practice with a diverse audience.
