This show aimed to present the positive human strength and capabilities for surviving the most traumatic circumstances. The severe flooding in Thailand was the main inspiration for the theme of the show which involved a multitude of art forms.
This show generated a new audience by selling all the work at an affordable price, making art accessible to everyone. A percentage of the profits made from the exhibition was donated to the Phetsian Childrens Centre to replace damaged belongings caused by the flood.
