Game Making

Things I did for fun and people paid me for doing that.

Creator of Coconut Empire Board Game
After a long journey in media making, I felt that raising awareness should be a fundamental ground of media, not the goal. I wanted to create a medium that gives experience to the audience not only attention. The eureka moment came from my urge to make a board game that truly reflects a third world country. The logic of this Thai game is to “manage relationship and trust”. It is a core of the social and the political structure. When I played it with artists and activists from Southeast Asia (They were composed of Thai, Cambodian, Indonesian plus one Japanese person), everybody enjoyed it and naturally knew how to play, while the Japanese only gave me a blank stare as they did not know how to play the political game like the Southeast Asian.

Gender Equality

Things I did for my dignity.

 

2015

Founder of thaiconsent.org
My friends were sexually harassed. It made me want to do something. That was why I opened up thaiconsent.org to promote sexual consent in 2015. I put them on Facebook, with some few changes in 2017. The fan page was widely shared. Now it has 34,000+ Followers, 350+ stories from the anonymous, 30+ artist who volunteer to help, and lots of people who want to support the project with their own skills.

The exhibitors were composed of an artist, a social activist, an owner of overseas study agency, a teacher and those who did not identify themselves with any professions. Their backgrounds were diverse. We recreated the space and turned the library into a school. We got funded by 60 guests. We organized an exhibition under the theme ‘Criticism of Thai Education’.
