As the Chiang Mai Art Museum is approaching the notion of making the museum as a place for a cultural-together learning process as well as a place that can prepare resources for net-work of people to develop their own cultural definitions in relation closely to value of life, and believe, it is important that the Chiang Mai Art Museum has to have its own media. This media will gather together all artists, social a projects, and some new invention of cultural ideas, and their outcomes in the northern province of Thailand as well as from other parts of the country.
Cultural activists will be presenting their projects in the museum and also give us their project motivations, and ideas - then we will keep them as the museum archive. All activities are welcomed to use this channel- no matter they are individuals or groups. This channel will also be a place that people can create some online projects in art. And it also will help supporting the E-Learning project in art and culture of the Department of Fine Arts, other departments. Other cultural projects from other universities in the northern province are welcomed to this channel as well.
