BACK TO ISAN
Isan in the Northeast of Thailand is another world from Bangkok, it is still rural - it is the land, it is rich in cultural heritage and ancient artisanal know-how.
In Isan, anything is possible, once the poorest region now one of the most prosperous. It is a paradox, the agricultural backbone of the country becoming a modern hub yet with an abundance of artisans with skills passed on for generations.
Isan Dreams suggests that there is more than one dream - it is no longer just about going to the city and making it there nor is it the version of "development" that we have subscribed to for decades - it is about change: a vision of the future from the past moving towards a future that is rooted in the land, embracing what is yet to come.
