Assoc. Prof. Krittapat Thapalabut, Ph.D., Dean of the Faculty of Architecture, Khon Kaen University revealed that this event had been held for15 years this year. In 2023, the fair integrated classroom learning of the students so that they could create works and make earnings for themselves. In so doing, the students applied the skills from classrooms, including creativity, team working and solution of problems when they become entrepreneurs in their art works. The event is therefore similar to a market for students to sell their handmade items that they created and designed by themselves. The activity therefore promotes self-development and experimenting on product making for selling. Therefore, it is another basis for the students to become entrepreneurs in the future.
There were a lot of entrepreneurs and visitors of all ages joining the 15th Art Festival. Approximately, there were on average 7,655 people coming to the fair each day including digital entrepreneurs. The organizers are grateful to all who came and hope that the faculty will receive this support every year.
