Makhampom Theatre Group

Makhampom is a Thai theatre group working to build theatre as people's media. Founded in 1980, the group has grown into a large collective of volunteers. They have a team in Bangkok at the Makhampom Art Space and another team in Chiang Dao at the Makhampom Living Theatre.

Makhampom wears many hats, that include: developing Thailand's youth theatre movment; building a pool of professional theatre activists; creating new contemporary Thai theatre forms; transforming Thai society around issues of conflict, discrimination, freedom, and people's justice; having a long-term impact in communities in Chiang Dao;  transferring knowledge and resources through international exchange, hosting, and collaborations; and running a social enterprise programme to survive into the future and support young artists.
