Running from Friday until Tuesday at Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn Anthropology Centre and dedicated to natural catastrophes, the festival explores "the local wisdom needed to tackle such crises" by displaying tools and equipment sourced from 69 museums throughout Thailand that people devised to see them through difficult times.
