Every Country, every place in the world has its own habits, characteristics and history. Some places are similar, have a common story or background, others share nothing at all. Thailand is a pretty warm country where people are kind, friendly, welcoming and helpful. Food is very spicy and everyone smiles. It is not a rich country and it is very traditional.

This Winter project is intended specifically for Baltic region and Russian artists to study the difference between two places so distant in terms of location, weather and mentality, looking at the common interests and shared behaviour. You’ll have the opportunity of a true immersion into rural Thai life but with the comfort and convenience of a self-contained residence with shared facilities and a support network in place. Thai people will warmly welcome you as part of the family and you will experience a very distinct life during the Christmas season.

Sam Rit Residency is inviting artists of all mediums, arts managers and arts workers, academics of all disciplines, researchers and students; our residency program offers the time and space for creative individuals willing to be part of a team to research and produce and exchange, recalibrate perspectives and invigorate creative energy. The applying artist must be open to collaboration and have an open mind. Be able to work with others and sometimes put aside their personal space.

The fees for this project are 2300$(USD) for a single room, consisting of en suite, hot shower, air conditioning, bed sheets, towel and basic supplies for 60 days stay. This includes 2 days meals and orientation; entrance fees to the Phimai Historical Park, transport comprised of a twice a week shopping and a driver/interpreter. The orientation will cover places of interest and information about Sam Rit Village and the nearest town of Phimai.

Financial Assistance to Residents:
Sam Rit Residency is a non-profit entity without government or philanthropic funding. Proceeds from the program are put directly back into the Sam Rit community through employment and projects. Unfortunately we are unable to provide direct financial assistance to residents. We have however reduced the cost of the program to just cover the services we offer. We are also happy to assist residents who are applying for external funding in the form of Letters of Support.

Applications are now being accepted until midnight Saturday 30th of June 2018 (ICT) for the residency taking place between 1 December – 29 January 2018.
