Asian Culture Station (ACS) is a gathering depot for citizens to build a sustainable relationship and to enrich mutual understanding between Thailand and other Asian nations including Japan. Focusing on arts and culture, in particular, ACS provides a co-working space for collaboration, on & off site events for people’s appreciation of artistic endeavors, and information through sets of publications and first-hand materials for further study in the region. ACS is operated by the Japan Foundation Asia Center, Japan’s principal organization for cultural exchange, and Chiang Mai Art Conversation, an energetic artist collective whose office is also newly established within the station.
Co-organized with the Japan Foundation Asia Center, ACS in Chiang Mai is one of the three venues in Southeast Asia. The other two stations are in Yangon, Myanmar and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
