Description of the organisation:
ComPeung (คำเปิง), combining the two words com (a remark) and peung (appropriate), derives from Northern Thai Lanna language. Their vision and mission for ComPeung are to create those appropriate remarks, suitable to the situations, environments, and communities we deal with. Since July 2005 and with the support of the residing artists, the creative community, their friends and families, the idea of ComPeung has become a lived reality. As the first non-government artist-in-residence programme in Thailand, the ComPeung Team aspires to live up to the truest sense of the meaning of ComPeung.
Description of the residency programme:
ComPeung is located in Doi Saket, Chiang Mai Province, Northern Thailand. Despite just being 20 km northeast of the city of Chiang Mai, Doi Saket has escaped the tourism trap so far. Due to its position Doi Saket is also the gateway to Chiang Rai and the Golden Triangle. With diverse local and ethnic communities traditional northern everyday culture is still very much alive in Doi Saket.
Not only the ComPeung site itself but various sites in its neighborhood and in Doi Saket, such as the lakes, the temples or the local market offer great opportunities to engage with the unique locality and the local community.
