APWT Heart Water Thailand 

Event Information APWT Writing Retreat

Heart Water Thailand 22-24 November 2024

Chiang Mai. Thailand. Chiang Mai. APWT is coming. Get ready for HEART WATER – the bi-annual APWT summit dedicated in 2024 to the life forces of heart and water. The conceptual metaphors of nature are essential to many Asian and Thai arts – visual, written and performed. Conceptions of Earth, Water, Wind and Fire (Din Nam Lom Fai) are recognised as intimately connected to representation of natural and cultural heritage in Thailand. APWT seeks to run a contemporary heart line in dedication to these traditions inviting creative practitioners from around the world to join us in a three-day celebration of everything that moves us – the poetics of past and present.

Participants will gather in Chiang Mai, Thailand’s celebrated artistic city on the banks of the Ping River where emotion meets fluidity – this is HEART WATER – an APWT event with a difference. Fancy a mediation before your panel session?

Want to tour the old town on a bike or a kayak before you read your poetry to an international audience in a famous arts centre shaped like a temple? APWT have got you – start planning your trip today. Below you will see details of their partner hotels to book your stay.

HEART WATER will run in two remarkable venues – home base at Chiang Mai University https://www.cmu.ac.th/en/ with feature events to be staged at Kalm Village https://www.kalmvillage.com a stunning art, craft and cultural centre in the heart of Chiang Mai. Early Bird Registrations for HEART WATER are open now. Financial members of APWT will receive priority programming https://www.apwriters.org/become-a-member/
