Studio 88 Artist Residency is a space to experiment, play, share, make mistakes and learn in the northern Thai town of Doi Saket. Set in a rural landscape just 30 minutes from the cultural city of Chiangmai, Studio 88 gives time and space to focus on creating, rather than producing outputs.

Studio 88 is now accepting applications for 2020 and 2021 for periods of two weeks up to 3 months. To apply, please Studio 88 Artist Residency Application Form and email it to:

About the residency

Diverse artforms welcome

  • literature
  • visual arts
  • new media
  • performing arts (dance, theatre, music)
  • craft
  • design


In the first week Sasiwimon Wongjarin (Aom), an international arts manager and a native of Doi Saket, will introduce the residents to the space and the local context through a series of studio tours and site visits. Additionally, where possible she can provide any additional information about local artist initiatives tailored to each artist’s interests. The residency is an open format where each resident has the freedom to shape their own direction and focus.

The aim of the residency is to provide time out from the busy day-to-day life in order to create tranquil space to create. There is no pressure to produce any final outputs by the end of the residency, although the team can help to facilitate connections with galleries or other initiatives if the resident is interested.

What the residency includes

  • Self-contained bungalow and workspace
  • Communal space for sharing ideas and a meal
  • Breakfast and dinner provided in the shared dining space
  • Transport to and from the airport
  • An introduction to the creative community through studio and site visits

You can read more details about the residency and the space here.

It is possible to stay between two weeks and three months (you can find the fees here). Costs not included in the fees are return airfares, health insurance, visa fees, local transport costs while in the residence or other project related costs. Studio 88 can provide a support letter to any accepted artist who is applying for a grant.


Applications are accepted on an on-going basis for the residency programme. There is no deadline, however we ask that you send you applications at least one month before the proposed residency period.
