Eric Booth, Director, MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum, Chiang Mai, Thailand, talks to us about what it has meant for her museum to have been one of the winners of the Outstanding Museum Practices Award of CIMAM 2022.

"The Outstanding Museum Practices Award has generated a space of affection among colleagues. Seeing the work of other colleagues is very inspiring, and it has been an honor for us to receive this recognition. We are a very small team, and we all help each other, from the gatekeeper to the curators and artists, and being recognized with this award from CIMAM has made us all feel very happy. It has come precisely at a time when we were reflecting on what we were doing, inspiring us to persevere with our endeavors".
