About Khonkaen Manifesto
KHONKAEN MANIFESTO: FLASHY FLASHES #1 aims to open up spaces through and for the arts in various mediums and branches engaging with marginalized sub cultures and communities. To give voice as well as platform to those exploited, forgotten and displaced by overwhelming main-stream developments whether that be cultural, social, political or economical. Craft, fashion, music, theatre and performances embodied by those at the periphery has long been a medium of their social fabric, weaved into their everyday life, an expression and representation of their livelihoods, their art. For example, Mor-lam: a sub-cultural performance which passes its wisdom and ideology of the practitioners to the communities through festive music and vivid movements. These contemporary practices are brought to the forefront in Khon Kaen manifesto in hopes that the communities can participate as collaborators and outspokenly express their cultural rights through artistic practices.
