ARI in the News

Before being reinvented as Art Relief International, our arts initiative was originally known as the Canvas Art Program. Under this moniker and our parent organization Cultural Canvas Thailand, our philanthropic work, local art workshops, and community exhibitions have been touted in both local and international news media.

Here are some excerpts from various news sources:
