Turning a new leaf in November, we’ve queued up a handful of sense-stimulating events to take you from the AM to the PM. A Nordic Film Festival, gallery openings, art installations, and music festival—say no more!
Nordic countries all made the top 10 World Happiness Report, so what could be more fitting than for this year’s Nordic Film Festival 2022 to have the theme of “Nordic Happiness”. Exploring subjects of inclusivity, autonomy, and nature, the three-day event showcases five films from five different Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden—capturing what it means to embody Nordic Happiness.

Saratta art space presents Nuttapong ‘Nut Dao’ Daovichitr’s solo exhibition. Growing in Between explores the ebb and flow of the transformative stage. The change within the physical and mental being is represented through harsh lines and semi-abstract brush strokes, leaving a bleary form for the audience to decipher.

For those in need of a quick getaway, King Power Mahanakhon brings ‘nature’ to the concrete jungle with the Wonders of Nature exhibition. High up on the 74th floor, the skyscraper has transformed itself into four different zones. The Cloud of You corner pulls the sky close within arm's reach and is perfect for a photo op. The Shiny Bubble area mimics the calmness underwater, urging you to leave all your troubles behind. Meanwhile, Forest Square explodes with enigmatic and daunting fairytale elements, and The Way to Paradise explores a scenic beach at dawn speckled with glistening jellyfish.
74th Floor, King Power Mahanakhon, 114 Naradhiwat Rajanagarindra Road
Until November 15, 7-10pm
