Art exhibitions and theatrical performances, concerts and festivals, craft markets and literary talks are significant drivers of any capital’s cultural scene, and by extension the locals’ quality of life and the tourism industry. In that mix, music and urban graphic performance especially hold
a certain positive power in the reputation of a city.
Bangkok River Exchange III (13-16 May) will precisely talk about the importance of cultural tourism. The Cities of Culture Exchange will be an opportunity to share experiences of the music-driven economy in Liverpool and Bangkok. The Beatles arguably put Liverpool on the map and the city’s love for its music has continued to develop, creating a strong cultural scene that is clearly supported by its government and citizens. Bangkok too has a love affair with music and now the industry is being reshaped by weekend festivals and micro-venues that offer a diverse range of live music.
On 16 May, from 2 pm at the new Warehouse 30 community space on Charoenkrung soi 30, two local heros will join Liverpool City’s Director of culture to share how music can transform the city and re-energize tourism.
Mexican Street Artist, Sofia Castellanos was in Bangkok 11-23 March to paint a mural on the wall of the new Warehouse 30 (sister venue of The Jam Factory) in partnership with the Mexican Embassy. Yet another mural to discover in the district.
