Chiangmai Art Converstion (CAC) is a nonprofit artist-run initiative that was founded in Chiang Mai, Thailand in January 2013. Our main objective is to provide art information. In order to make this available, we are creating an online art system contains art map of art spaces, events, and other useful Chiang Mai art data. Our online efforts aim to reflect history and also predict the future of art scene in Chiang Mai through data bank. However, we do encourage and build physical connection and interaction in a form of various activities to further the growth of the art community and its public audience.
