Video Archive – The current state of lacquer arts and crafts.
Our last symposium and art exhibition was in Siem Reap, Cambodia in 2018. The 2020 Program in Tokyo has been postponed until October, 2022 due to the pandemic. During this pause in our lives and in the Project’s programs, we are creating a video archive of the current state of lacquer arts and crafts in Southeast Asia. We are beginning with Thailand, Vietnam, and Myanmar. Then we will continue, Cambodia, Laos and Bhutan!

3 minute summary of the complete video on our Youtube site
The first completed video archive is “The Current State of Asian Lacquer Craft and Culture in Thailand”! Sumanatsya Voharn (Jib) at Chiang Mai University supervised the project. We thank Jib and her research team for their work in documenting lacquer culture in Thailand and creating the Project’s first archive.
