'There's No Place' Project Collaboration a Big Success!

Last week Prem’s Artist Residency Thailand programme welcomed acclaimed Thai artist Jakkai Siributr for two days of workshops and engagements. Students, teachers and community members all had the opportunity to directly input into his new long-term project, ‘There’s No Place’. A collaborative ‘call-and-response’ embroidery project and ongoing installation, that seeks to create a dialogue between the Shan community of Northern Thailand and viewers around the world. 
 
Focusing on issues and aspirations highlighted by young people from this stateless, refugee community, the opportunity to reflect and respond creatively to these art pieces within our own community provided an incredible provocation for not just  ‘art-making’, but for meaningful intercultural dialogue and learning.
