Sam Rit Residency is a model of cultural residency open to creative artists of all mediums, arts managers and arts workers, academics, researchers and students. With options for short and long stays as well as partners and children, Sam Rit Residency program provides an opportunity for those with a creative and cultural interest to experience an authentic rural Thai farming village in the province of Nakhon Ratchasima. Completely self-contained with a support system in place, this is an opportunity to be immersed in traditional Thai culture and connect with a community for inspiration, contemplation and creation in your field.
Sam Rit Residency was borne out of the desire to create a flexible, inclusive and authentic residency program in the North Eastern village of Sam Rit, Thailand. With additional opportunities such as guided tours, hands-on demonstrations with village locals, to family dinners and market visits, residents can have the chance to inspire new direction and energy in their work whilst escaping from the daily distractions of home/work/school life.
Our program provides options for length of stay around work commitments and enough accommodation for partners and children. We welcome all who are interested – from artists of all mediums, arts managers and arts workers, academics of all disciplines, researchers and students. This cultural residency program offers a rare opportunity of total immersion into real rural Thai life with the comfort and convenience of a self-contained residence with shared facilities and a support network in place.
