The Studio 88 space has up to five self-contained bungalows that include living spaces and studios. The residency space welcomes artists, artisans and thinkers, and includes diverse artforms such as literature, visual arts, new media, performing arts, craft and design.
Sasiwimon Wongjarin, 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 relevant to each artist’s interests.
Check out the open calls for more information on current deadlines.
The bungalows are self-contained and are set within cool tropical gardens. Each house includes:
- Bedroom (approx. 18m2)
- Work space (approx. 12m2)
- Kitchen with cooking utensils and gas stove
- Bathroom (with hot shower)
- Air-conditioning, electric fans and mosquito nets
- Free drinking water
- 220 volt electricity
There are also a number of other resources available including:
- Free use of bicycle
- A workshop space for lager projects off-site (less than 2km from the main space)
- Technical support upon request (wood, metal, mixed-media)
Please note that there are no shared computers, so residents will need to bring their own equipment for their work. Some supplies (such as paints, etc.) can be purchased from Chiangmai.
There is one shared space that can be used for relaxing in and cooking (although each bungalow also has its own kitchen), and this is also where breakfast and dinner will be served. It is opposite the residential bungalows and is a large, multipurpose space, intended as a space to get together and share ideas.
Studio 88 is hosted by the family-run Sak Homestay, who will provide meals throughout the residency.
