Gridthiya Gaweewong is a Yong curator based in Bangkok and Chiang Mai. The Yong are a Tai ethnic group who migrated from Shan state to the Lanna Kingdom in the 19thcentury – dispersing across the northern region and becoming famous for their woodcraft and textiles. In this event, Gaweewong will walk through the memories of her family’s origins in Kosaliam, a small village in San Kamphaeng, before they migrated to Chiang Saen in Chiang Rai after World War II. Beginning from the Kosaliam temple, this special tour will include a stop at the Huang Jai Yong Restaurant and visits to some local craft workshops and Mit Jai Inn studios. During this journey, Gaweewong will discuss the cultural and socio-political context of San Kamphaeng in relation to Thailand, and how this district has been transformed by periods of decline and revitaliation.
