Art and artists are the places and people that can show us how the world is changing. Given the rapid economic advances in Asia over the past 20 years, it seems essential that new cultural connections are build across the continent so that we can all gain a greater understanding of what is happening at the roots of Asia's different societies. The Multitude Art Prize offers a wonderfully multi-faceted project to achieve this. With its nomadic exhibition and discussion programme, Multitude can build up a series of rich encounters across Asia and offer a unique new insight into what our collective future might hold.”

The Multitude Foundation

The Multitude Foundation was conceived out of the necessity for a genuine and sustainable cultural dialogue between the different regions of Asia.  It was established in 2011 and is a Hong Kong registered charitable trust.  Its remit is to support Asian contemporary artists and engage with young people through creative projects important for their development.  It will raise awareness of contemporary culture throughout Asia and explore the relevance of art during this period of enormous geopolitical change.

The internationally acclaimed Multitude Art Prize (MAP) is the first major undertaking of the Multitude Foundation.
