AN INTERDISCIPLINARY AND COLLABORATIVE ART PROJECT REALIZES A MODEL STUDY FOR NONGPO COMMUNITY’S FOREIGN LABORERS THROUGH DIALOGUE AND THE CREATIVE PRACTICES FOSTERED BY 22 PARTICIPATING ARTISTS.
365 Days : LIFE MUSE (Model study for Nongpo community’s foreign labours) is DAY OFF LABoratory # 2, an interdisciplinary and collaborative art project co-organized by the Art Centre Silpakorn University and Baan Noorg Collaborative Arts and Culture. This interdisciplinary and collaborative art project welcomes the participation of 22 artists and researchers with its main programs including a residency program in the Nongpo community, an artist talk program and an exhibition and forum at the Art Centre of Silpakorn University, Bangkok.
The 365 Days : LIFE MUSE project aims to function as an artistic platform that generates understanding and awareness among humans while living in a multi-cultural sphere and examining “the non-multiculturalism of multiculturalism.” The project issued an open-call and invited one Myanmar couple who are foreign laborers working in the Nongpo community to participate and live in the project’s residence for one year. Over 365 days, participating artists have developed alternative learning processes and diverse forms of collaboration with the Myanmar couple.
