Since 2007 Б’Art: Bishkek Art Center has developed collaborative projects and engaged in activities with local organizations, creating cultural-educational, charitable, social programs. Б’Art has provided educational art services/workshops; has developed opportunities for innovative exhibitions and has created public art projects and competitions. The center serves as a meeting point for artists and art enthusiasts, both local and international and stimulates creative activity within the local community. Bishkek Art Center is the only haven in Bishkek (if not in Kyrgyzstan), for pupils, students, and emerging creative talents to get feedback, resonance, and a critical portfolio review - but also to receive constructive support, basic art materials and sometimes a temporary studio space. Students can with meet professional artists and benefit from their experience and professionals have the opportunity to interact with their peers and be in a constant exchange. People with a leaning toward art can participate in workshops or even take part in preparing projects. Everyone is welcome. Open days, alongside all the other activities, are organized regularly. With numerous initiatives and programs in the local community, Б‘Art specifically aims to support the next generation on its way to create a sustainable future, focused on social interaction and collaboration involving people from various backgrounds and generations.
Bishkek Art Center is accommodated in a historical building - a former art factory from Soviet Union times. The whole complex is made up of seven parts varying in size and form. It is a harmonious arrangement providing space for about 50 studios for leading Kyrgyz artists. It includes two exhibition halls, one large and one small for all needs i.e. exhibitions, workshops, seminars, presentations, performances, etc. Offices and a warehouse are located in the same complex.
