ComPeung is the first non-governmental artist-in-residence program in Thailand. Founded in 2005 by art professionals who strongly believe places that defy the mainstream art's obsession with commerce rather than content are needed. Alternative places that experiment with and question the role of art, artists' positions, and the interdependence of art and society. ComPeung aspires to be one of these places, open to all who share the seriousness and the compassion for creativity.

ComPeung, combining the two words com (a remark) and peung (appropriate), derives from Northern Thai Lanna language. Our vision and mission for ComPeung are to create those appropriate remarks, suitable to the situations, environments, and communities we deal with.

Due to generous private donation ComPeung is able to provide 2 one month ComPeung Artist-in-Residence artists grants for 2010. The 2 residencies are scheduled for October 2010.
