Documentation of Arts and Culture
Thrive Art Projects accepts article submission whenever resources allow us to. Our requirement is for submissions to be about art in the Philippines, with preference on the following: exhibition reviews, book reviews, artist profiles, and opinion pieces.
As an art organization that works on the development of arts and culture, we are interested in collaborations. We have done research, exhibitions and talks in the past.
Thrive Art Projects is a self-funded organization, and the online gallery is our way of raising fund for our programs including the website.
