After the first Kathmandu Arts Festival in 2009, the Siddhartha Arts Foundation (SAF), a non-profit organization, was founded in 2011 with the mission to promote Nepal’s arts and cultures, while establishing Kathmandu as a center for socially aware art practices. Since then, SAF hosted the 2012 Kathmandu Arts Festival, the 2017 Kathmandu Triennale, and Kathmandu Triennale 2077, developed in collaboration with curatorial and educational input from experts in the field selected and invited by a diverse board. Over the years, SAF has partnered with many artists, art institutions, and a broad network of national and international collaborators to host exhibitions, workshops, and art projects. The Foundation has been engaged in over 60 programs since its founding, and alongside the Siddhartha Art Gallery has a combined history of over 35 years investing in Nepal’s art scene. SAF furthermore runs an education program to train art managers, curators, and critics through its Siddhartha Arts Foundation Education Initiative (SAFEI).
