The Art of Surviving in the Arts
Bangkok Art and Culture Centre
About Early Years Project
An initiative conceived to foster the talents of fledgling artists, the program initiated and operated by Exhibition department of Bangkok Art and Culture Centre selects participating works from a range of public submissions with the goal of encouraging the young artists to climb the career ladder and seize opportunities available in Thailand and overseas. The project’s long-term goal is to develop a support base for one generation of artists for a certain period of time while also offering artists of various origins and styles the opportunity to learn new skills and gather experiences that will feed into their career progression. The project offers includes funding to support their creation, spaces to display works and opportunities to exchange experiences and develop art-making processes. Aimed to expand the artists’ attitudes of art itself through insightful analysis, discussion on the concept and its social value, Early Years Project also drives the artists towards a more mature experience in the international arena.
