CREATIVE MIGRATION is a women-of-color-led, international arts organization based in Los Angeles and Bangkok.
Our 501(c)(3) nonprofit weaves together methodologies of inclusive design, environmentally regenerative practices and cultural diplomacy to achieve a greater interconnectedness through our work. Our mission is evolving to focus primarily on Net Zero Storytelling through a variety of mediums including: film/video, audio, performance, multimedia, publications, immersive experiences, placemaking, etc. All current and future programs will fall under this multidisciplinary umbrella.
Creative Migration was founded in 2005 by our Executive Director Susannah Tantemsapya in California. She expanded operations to Thailand in 2018 to open our largest project to date, Bangkok 1899, a cultural & civic hub established through funding from The Rockefeller Foundation and the Ford Motor Company Fund.
Since 2011, our nonprofit has employed environmentally regenerative practices throughout our projects and day-to-day operations. Our current mission is to advance cultural diplomacy through the three pillars of art, public engagement and sustainability through three primary strands: Artist Residencies & Creative Hubs; Site-specific Installations; and Transmedia Projects.
