5.1 Collective and International Collaboration
Speakers: Baan Noorg Collaborative Arts & Culture and Open-Contemporary Art Center (OCAC, Taiwan) 
Collaborative work requires a joint effort and mutual respect on a common idea. The production of each group work is unique and is naturally a battle between the ego and the common idea. Each project unavoidably goes through mutual collaboration in streamlining thinking process, production or other steps. This activity walks the artists through steps in creating group work from a blank canvas to a complete production. The steps include group calling, internal and external affairs management, group discussion on questions like “Why do artists need to register an artist group?”, “What are the benefits to an artist group in terms of power towards the public and private sector?” “What are the benefits for artist group at domestic and international level?”
5.2 Freelance Must Know: Credibility and Social Welfare 
Speakers: Chanin Kulakarnchanathorn and tasknjoy team
Artists and other freelance professions are commonly known as “informal employment”. These professions aren’t under social welfare, Old Age Pension, or security pension. The result leads to financial and health insecurity. How can people in these creative professions survive the current insecurity and social limit? This talk introduces you to the whole national welfare system in Thailand as well as tips and tricks on how to access to the public fund, get a bank loan or credit card approved. The talk also talks about taxation structure for these professions as well as other guidelines that will benefit them.
