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.  Call for residency applications for 2011.

The ComPeung Artist-in-Residence Program is designed for local and international artists to live and work together with our team and the local community. Interested artists are encouraged to apply by providing ComPeung with a preliminary proposal of her/his/their art work or project. As a work-in-progress we understand that the proposed project might change in the process.

By living and working together in basic yet comfortable conditions with our team, the local communities and a broad spectrum of artists, the ComPeung program provides the resident artists with a wide range of exchanges, opportunities, experiences and possibilities. ComPeung envisions to be an open playground for dialogs, alternative contexts, experiments, explorations, and mutual learning. The aspired goal for ComPeung is to develop and expand into a network of artists and art organizations on local, regional and international levels.

Deadline for residency applications January - June 2011: November 1, 2010.

Deadline for residency applications July - December 2011: May 1, 2011.
