Jim Thompson Farm is holding the ''Art on Farm'' festival, showcasing artworks produced from natural and recycled materials by 11 artists at its premises in Nakhon Ratchasima from Dec 18 until Jan 9. The festival is open daily from 9am-5pm.
The site-specific, eco-friendly art project is part of the Jim Thompson Farm Tour 2010 which focuses on agriculture, sericulture (silk production) and Isan architecture and culture.
Piloted last year to an overwhelming response from more than 80,000 visitors, the project aims to create and develop artistic projects that will attract the public's attention and promote a better understanding of art.
Using the unique environment, ecology and sericulture of Jim Thompson Farm, the project encourages creativity through an emphasis on workshops and other activities held by artists to stimulate imagination and creativity.
Also running as part of the ''Art on Farm'' project is Thailand's first-ever ''Isan Film Festival'', which offers a combination of educational and entertainment programmes.
This one-of-a-kind festival aims to provide viewers with an in-depth understanding of Isan culture through selected films created from the viewpoints of both professional and amateur film-makers and representing various levels of Isan society.
