Cultural Ecologies of Performance: Creativity, Research and Innovation is a research project whose goal is to create “space and new meaning” to dramatic arts education in Chulalongkorn University, connecting performance artists and academics in various levels, crossing branches, arts, media, and work for social well-being.
The idea, concept and research topic include creating Cultural Ecologies of Performance which focuses on the idea of performance being a part of life as much as the environment that surrounds us. Thus, art has no classes. Art serves as a tool to communicate, to create work that sparks knowledge and acknowledgement, inspiring pleasantness and wisdom. Everyone is a part of performance’s creative process. This idea coincides with crossing arts, media, cultures and emphasizing the communities’ knowledge exchange.
The project’s activities include the dialogue on Performance for Life and the synthesis of the body of knowledge on organizing festivals as research report, as research article (Thai-English), academic journal, collection of online articles and documentary on ‘Cultural Ecologies of Performance.’
