This workshop is supported by The Japan Foundation Asia Centre that promotes a cultural collaboration among Japan, Thailand, and Timor-Leste.

Rede Kreatividade Fotografu or REKREATIF is a group of young people who love photography and gather together on social media ‘Facebook’. There are 17,000 members sharing photographs of people, culture, and nature of Timor-Leste, and exchanging photographic techniques and experiences.

“The founders of REKREATIF have a great enthusiasm. They want to pursue their career paths as the first group of fine art and commercial art photographers in Timor-Leste. They asked Silpakorn University to organize a photography workshop for them,” press release stated

But anyway, the COVID pandemic postponed the workshop twice. The restrictions of cross-border travelling from Timor-Leste to Thailand of which distance is 7,610 kilometers made the organizers and REKREATIF arrive at a new decision: making the workshop online.

Finally they have met a solution, even though online.  REKREATIF participants are currently developing their photography project under the guidance of Dow Wasiksiri and Wannapong Surarochprajak along with an online coordinator, Ornin Reungwattanasuk

“Please be patient. We will see photographs by REKREATIF soon at PSG Art Gallery, the Faculty of Painting, Sculpture and Graphuc Arts, Silpakorn Univesrity, Bangkok, at 10:00 to 18:00 from 1 to24 April 2021, Closed on Saturdays and Sundays, and public holidays,” stated in press release
