Founded in 2013 by patron Jam Acuzar, BAP is a private non-profit working within the active and dynamic art field of contemporary art in the Philippines. We support creative and knowledge production by local and international artists, providing a platform for experimentation and interdisciplinary collaboration through our residency, exhibition and education programs.

BAP is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting Filipino culture and connecting contemporary artists from different parts of the world. Our program brings together the artistic community through the sharing of ideas and starting conversations with diverse global perspectives. We believe collaboration is fundamental in making art accessible and useful for all.

The residency program offers decelerated time and space towards research and further development of the resident’s practice in dialogue with the historical memory and present-day context of Bataan. Artists selected will also have the opportunity to collaborate with artisans from the workshops of Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar, fueling innovation in a wide range of art-making practices, including but not limited to visual art, performance, architecture and image-making.
