Creative Migration and Bangkok 1899 is simply amazing. The mission and the people are inspiring.

Every time I go to an event or even when I stop by their cafe, I love everything about it. The place and the people are so welcoming.

This is an incredible resource for the community and I can't wait to see it fully blossom and have even greater positive impact on the local community and for the world.

Love the programming at Creative Migration. Bangkok 1899 brings a completely new feeling to the Nang Leorng neighborhood, and the Bangkok 1899 are very good at being inclusive with locals. The films and installations are incredibly thought provoking, and I always look forward to learning something new everytime i go.

I attended the grand opening at Baan Chao Phraya, which is close to the Golden Mount temple in the old town of Bangkok. They house several foundations with the aim of increasing art, community and sustainability activities in the local community. By pooling their resources their service offering goes further. The education projects that focus on sustainability, such as composting and recycling, are incredibly important to the community. And the verdant canopy of plants, trees and vegetables they are growing only serve to enhance the beauty of the impressive architecture. The people and inspiring surroundings combine to create a welcoming and truly inspirational atmosphere.

Art is never created in a vacuum. Cultures and public circumstances are important behind the creator. Hope to see the more project from Creative Migration and artist !

Not everyone has the luxury to travel abroad for art and cultural experience. Creative Migration changed the approach by bringing the 'world' into local communities, creating art and cultural diversity in places you least expected.

Creative Migration is a progressive organisation that looks not only to nurture art but enhance its social impact. It does this by encouraging the creation, interaction and reflection on art across borders and socio-economic status.

My first interaction with Creative Migration came from its Bangkok project: Bangkok 1899. Here, Creative Migration uses art as a centrepiece for community building while working in collaboration with several other Bangkok-based charities and initiatives to attend to local needs in a holistic manner. I feel that the project is definitely on its way to becoming a distinguished community centre of sorts that will no doubt provide inspiration and perhaps even a blueprint for the development of similar centres around the world.

I interned with Creative Migration for 3 months, and I loved every aspect of my experience working there. Creative Migration has a brilliant and unique mission for a great cause that opened me to a completely new world that intersected between the arts and non-profits; I gained so much insight in different ways on how to run a non-profit organization at an international level . I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to attend and participate in exciting events as well as connect with various people from across the globe. Susannah and Jasmin are amazing, inspiring, and such humble people to work with - I couldn't have asked for better mentors! Will truly cherish this experience as it helped me grow both professionally and personally.

I've been incredibly impressed with Creative Migration's ability to flexibly respond to opportunities that align with it's core values - promoting creative connections and sustainability. Most of all, it's core team pays detailed regard to the individual artistic personalities that it works with on each respective project; from my insights as a volunteer, its Director's great strength lies in incorporating her personal artistic passion to skillfully bring people together and facilitate new collaborations.
