It’s been almost 6 months since we started the project ‘Leave it and Break no Hearts’. During this project, we have many grateful opportunities to collaborate with many wonderful people and institutions to serve our local contemporary art community. We did community engagement project with CommeDe students, made a field trip to Nakorn Rachasima, Thailand with writers, scholars, and artists, as well as joined a residency program with a.e.y space in a history downtown SongKhla, Thailand.

Artwork images, a short story, research articles, letters between two artists, project statements, and a short note from the field trip are included in this book 'Leave it and Break no Hearts’, designed by Saša Tkačenko, Serbien Artist.

In the event on Sunday October 23, we will share and discuss about this book with artists, curator, and collaborators from 5 – 6.30 pm.
