Midnight Rice Festival, Thailand

I’m excited to announce that Project/Forward will be featured as part of the program for the three-day Midnight Rice festival in Chiang Mai.
Since its beginning during the COVID-19 lockdowns, I have been involved as the digital director/creative lead and as an artist in Project/Forward, a festival that showcases moving image projections of artists around the worldFrom Friday, 24 November, through Sunday, 26 November, join โ€˜Kon.Kao.Yakoo Chang Moiโ€™: the Midnight Rice Festival 2023, a contemporary celebration of Loy Krathong and the Midnight Rice ceremony at Wat Chom Phu in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

On the night of the full moon, from November 24-26, 2023, the people of Chang Moi will come together to celebrate the Yee Peng festival with a traditional rice pudding ceremony against the backdrop of their community temple, Wat Chomphu. Juxtaposed with traditional rituals, the young generation comes together for a blend of culture; multimedia art exhibitions of visuals and sound, a community market, karaoke, live music, and more.ย 

This festival is a celebration of community, culture, and creativity. It is a chance to experience the best of Chiang Mai’s traditional and contemporary offerings. โ€” The blending, mixing, and stirring of the old and the new.
