The REDBASE Foundation located in Yogyakarta, Indonesia is a non-profit arts organization initiated in 2015 by Nancy Nan, the Founder. Built on a 1,500 m2 parcel of land within the Heritage Traditional Javanese House, and located in a village near the Art Institute (ISI) in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The Foundation sets itself up as a platform for cultural exchange and international dialogue between local artistic practices and art networks both national and international. REDBASE is committed, as well, to collaborations with the village communities in order to build up for a more creative social environment through visual arts education.

Each year the
Foundation's AIR Program offers an invitation to four to six emerging and professional non-Yogya-based artists (local and international) who work in the contemporary Visual Arts, and who have a serious interest in Indonesian culture, to explore his/her practice within Indonesia's local community. They will have the opportunity of meeting new people, using new materials, especially materials used by native Indonesians, and experiencing life in a new location. The Foundation's Exhibition Program focuses on ten to twelve exhibitions each year and is opened to the public, free-of-charge.

Every year,
REDBASE Foundation provides assistance to five young and emerging Indonesian artists who work with different media. Selection is by legitimate jury in the Indonesian Young Artist Award Program.

The
REDBASE Foundation also provides a three to four day Art Tour Program each year during ART JOG to visit local artist studios, art spaces, institutions and foundations, and to meet Indonesian artists and feel the ambience of the Indonesia art scene. The Foundation's Art Education Program provides art classes for kids, and organized art classes for kids with special needs, offered completely free.

The
REDBASE Foundation is the extension of REDBASE Art Management, dedicated to supporting and promoting visual contemporary art practice for young Indonesia artists and to connect them with International art scenes, museums, and art institutions.
