European Union National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC) is a network of European national institutes of culture and national bodies engaged in cultural and related activities beyond their national borders. In Bangkok and several countries in the world we are joined in “clusters”, it mean we work together on same thematic and projects. The European Institute and Embassies involved on this project in Bangkok are : French Embassy & Alliance française, British Council, Camoes Institute, Embassies of Austria, Italy, Poland, Spain and Goethe Institute.
8 Europeans students come to Bangkok to participate to a workshop with 8 students from Silpakorn University International College for a 15 days period. Each EUNIC member has identified a school in Europe and European students has been selected by the mentors of the project : Manit Sriwanichpoom, Photographer and Gabriel Camelin, Professor at Silpakorn University International College. Each European student will be paired with a student from Silpakorn University International College. Each team will work and produce a photographic series on a specific topic, announced on the first workshop’s day.
At the end of the workshop, the artworks will be presented at Galerie Oasis with all the students involved on November 1st at 6:00 pm and on November 9th at Goethe Institute and at Alliance française for the 30th Anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall.
The objective of EUNIC members is to develop sustainable partnerships with European and Thai students, always around an artistic thematic and develop strong links between Thai and French schools.
