“Echoes of Wisdom: Living Past, Living Future” is the latest exhibition by Tamarind Village Chiang Mai. This exhibition, which will run until December 11th, brings together images and displays that showcase sustainability in Northern Thailand and examine the lifestyle of Lanna people. It reminds us of the wisdom that guided them in their daily lives and show us how those values, many of which are fast disappearing today, have inspired a growing number of individuals.
The exhibition offers a fascinating window onto the self-reliance of earlier generations of northern Thai people: how they built their homes from natural materials, wove cloth to make their own garments, grew rice and vegetables, caught fish in the streams, raised their own livestock and even used herbs to heal common ailments. The exhibition also touches on the importance placed on communal living in former times and how people helped one another.
Once again, Tamarind Village Chiang Mai shows us the beauty of Lanna living and introduces us to Northern sustainable entreprises. Great ideas and works to be soon nationally recognised.
When asked about the motivation behind the theme of the latest exhibition at Tamarind Village, Claudine Triolo, the hotel’s Director of Sales and Marketing replies, “as a business, we have always been interested in matters of sustainability, particularly in regards to preserving our cultural heritage. We are very aware that the world today is changing at a pace that we could not even have imagined a few years ago, so we feel that while it is important to embrace these changes. And that we should not completely disregard the past. We also thought it would be interesting to look at various people and businesses today that are working with the same ethos of sustainability and preservation that inspires us here at Tamarind Village. The more we looked into it, the more we found, which was very encouraging.”
Today, Tamarind Village Chiang Mai works with each and every organization showcased in this exhibition. You can walk around and discover the folk wisdoms of Northern Thai culture and you can also taste delicious organic tea and forest coffee from Monsoon Tea and Mivana brands at Long Khao the hotel’s charming Rice Barn Cafe.
