The Office of Arts and Culture Centre is currently one of the offices in Kanchanaburi Rajabhat University, under the Office of the Higher Commission, Ministry of Education. Initially, it started out as the Thai Culture Promotion Centre. The university itself, formerly known as Kanchanaburi Teachers Training College, was open in 1976 with Thongchai Somkhrut as the first president. Realising the importance of the college’s mission mentioned in the Teachers Training College Act (1976) that, apart from being an educational institution, the college should maintain and promote arts and culture, he established the Thai Culture Promotion Centre. The centre was later developed into Kanchanaburi Cultural Centre, Kanchanaburi Teachers Training College and has played an important role in promoting arts and culture in the province ever since. After that on 14 February 1980, King Bhumibol graciously renamed the college to “Rajabhat Institute” and the Rajabhat Institute Act was later declared in 1995.
