On 12-16 June 2010 THF participated in the Asian Community Architects Meeting in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Organised by ACHR and part of the Asian Coalition for Community Action (ACCA) programme, the meeting brought together 125 participants from 23 and was hosted by Chiang Mai University's Faculty of Architecture. Participants shared their experiences and projects working to help disadvantaged communities. One result of the meeting was the idea to form a network of community architects to support each other and to create a big new space for professionals/architects/planners to work with and provide support for urban poor communities. THF sent a delegation consisting of Pimpim de Azevedo, Ken Okuma, Stanzin Dolker, Nie Yun, Anna Wozniak and Andre Alexander.
