Phase I – “People and Place”
The Bangkok Noi sub-district is a unique and storied community in the heart of Bangkok, along the banks of the Chao Phaya River. It preserves and practices culture, art, religion, and traditional skills of a bygone and celebrated era in Thailand.
However, there is a call for revitalization in the area. There is a need for economic development and modernization, but also preservation of identity.
The Bangkok Noi Model Project is a collaborative trans-disciplinary research initiative between Mahidol University International College (MUIC) and Siriraj Hospital and funded by the Thai Health Promotion Foundation. The objectives of this research cluster are to focus on the well-being of the community, involving engagement with the people and place. Sub-projects of the first phase included a Cultural Walking Tour, a Town Hall Meeting with members of the local community, a short film about the area, a treasure hunt activity for families, and a Street Photography Workshop with students at Suwannaram School that led to a pop-up exhibition.
