• About

We are a non-for-profit arts presenter/producer that believes that there are only two kinds of art; we’re interested in the Good Kind.

We have several decades of combined experiences, talents, networks and interests across the artistic spectrum in Asia, Europe, North America and South America. We create opportunities for cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary collaboration.

We partner with a range of allies to help showcase, support and create projects that inspire the best in artists and audiences.

We believe in the power of artistic expression to build bridges, bring people together, and broaden horizons. We aim to advance the public’s understanding and appreciation of the broad range of arts that exist in our world.

We hope to inspire the best in artists to create the only kind of art that matters: The Good Kind.
