  • Description

    Description

    This is a sustainable development project in Koh Chang, to create a platform where people can see, experience and learn things differently and deeply with multiple events and activities. The idea is therefore not to set a well-defined program. On the contrary, to welcome and cooperate with all those who wish to enrich social good and sustainable future. We invest freely with various elements such as workshops, gallery, coworking space, open-air museum and organic farm in order to achieve inclusive society.


    To achieve that, we optimize artistic element to implement area 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 in social dimension and parallel culture.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    To invest in the preservation and the cultural diffusion and local events.

    The main axis of the project is towards the creation of a place. A space to invest freely, between workshops, gallery, coworking space, museum and place of associative life, in order to offer a framework conducive to the expression of different fields of creation and their intersection.

    A space that can encourage young cultural artists as well as the cultural potential of the island a species for people to share any creative practice with a diverse audience but also on a broader level to all those wishing to get involved in local life . A place also seeing a social dimension and the desire to open up to a wide audience, parallel to the current cultural circle, on the sidelines of the island.

    We want to make this place a welcoming platform for a multitude of events and activities. The idea is therefore not to freeze a well-defined program but, on the contrary, to open a part of the project to all those who wish to reflect on it and enrich it with us.

    In addition, we are keen to achieve the best implementation in our future (territory) and to create an emulsion between this place and its environment
