Studio 88 is an artist residency in Doi Saket, 25 km from the northern Thai city of Chiang Mai. Along with the residency, Studio 88 also provides services and mentoring in arts management, communication for creatives and managing finances.
Studio 88 has been a long-held dream of international cultural manager and Doi Saket local Sasiwimon Wongjarin (Aom). After 20 years working in cultural organisations such as the Asia-Europe Foundation in Singapore and the British Council in Bangkok, she felt it was time to come home and start a project that brings together her international experience and networks with her local knowledge of the vibrant Chiangmai cultural scene.
That was when Studio 88 was born, a space to reflect and experiment for all creative thinkers and makers.
Studio 88 believes in the power of art to interact with nature, people and culture in daily life, challenging ways of thinking and inspiring alternative perspectives. A core part of the Studio 88 project is to foster intercultural exchanges around issues of our times.
Studio 88 has two main strands of work:
- Artist residency in Doi Saket
- Online and in-person services and mentoring
