9 July, 2009

ABOUT THE PROJECT

In the French region of Nord-Pas de Calais, ArtAids will present a collaboration between the FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais, other regional cultural institutions and ArtAids Thailand.

It is envisaged that ten artists from Thailand and ten artists from France will be invited to reflect upon the Aids issue. The mix of viewpoints from various countries, cultures and a variety of media will make it possible to approach the subject from a range of angles, while avoiding pathos and voyeurism. The project will be a collaboration between the cultural institutions, their social partners, national education and the medical profession in order to raise awareness of HIV and Aids-related issues among the people of the region of Nord-Pas de Calais.
