2. PURPOSE OF JOB:
Bangkok 1899 is a new cultural and civic hub established by Creative Migration, an international arts organization based in Los Angeles and Bangkok. Our mission is to advance cultural diplomacy by the three pillars of art, public engagement and sustainability.
Designed by Italian architect Mario Tamagno under King Rama VI and build in 1899, our historic location is the former home of Chao Phraya Thammasakmontri, considered to be the father of Thailand’s modern education, and is centrally located in the city’s Old town neighborhood of Nang Loeng. Our hub is supported by The Rockefeller Foundation and the Ford Fund, and is in partnership with the RSA (Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce).
Bangkok 1899 will represent an intersection of art, design, urbanism and social innovation. Our initial two-year pilot program will develop a series of six activities to test, adapt and maximize our overall impact. These will include an International Artist Residency, a Public Events series, Open Spaces (including a public garden and a Zero Waste café with social impact programs), Models for Sustainability (incorporating different types of environmental technologies with a small urban farm), RSA Fellowship Development and a Flagship Event (annual event on social innovation, art and design).
Creative Migration, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization in the United States founded in 2005 and Creative Migration (East) is a registered foundation in the Kingdom of Thailand founded in 2018. Contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations support the development and presentation of our overall programming.
