Welcome to our new Asiarta Foundation website!

This website will keep you up to date with all the news and information about projects being undertaken by Asiarta Foundation.

Our non-profit arts foundation was established in early 2009 and supports vital development, documentation and conservation of the visual arts in Asia. Our principal region of interest is Southeast Asia, with an initial country focus on Vietnam, though much of our work involves exchanges of skills, knowledge and ideas far beyond Asian boundaries.

The Foundation has a complementary set of objectives:

  • Grass-roots Artist Support Support talented and creative artists to overcome the constraints they face, helping them to fulfill their artistic potential and share it with society
  • Art Conservation Ensure that today’s most important art works can be safeguarded and maintained to world-class standards, for the benefit of current and future generations
  • Conservation Research and Education Research and make available best practice conservation knowledge and techniques for care of Asian art works
  • Art History Research Conduct and support primary and secondary research to record essential – but often undocumented – art history for the benefit of understanding our cultures
  • Media and Publishing Support publishing, exhibition and media programmes internationally to increase knowledge and awareness about Asia through its art

Without initiatives to support these areas, many countries in Asia – and broader society in general – risk losing fundamental artistic legacies and original creative spirit. With a strong governmental and educational focus in Southeast Asia on economic development, artistic development – and the vital role it plays in enhancing a community’s identity and way of thinking – is often neglected. All of the Foundation’s activities and programmes are non-commercial in nature.

This website is intended to be our connection point with you and our other colleagues, partners, contributors, supporters and friends around the world. Please add your comments, advice or ideas to any of our articles. We greatly appreciate your feedback.

Adrian Jones – Executive Director, Asiarta Foundation
