Started as a young painter with a promising career, Ti-a pursued her Master of Fine Art and successfully defended her Doctoral thesis in Ukraine. Ti-a believes Art is for everyone, which led her to build up The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre in her vision.

“It’s important to me to build an art network in Vietnam that helps inspire and educate the people by bringing art closer to the community” says founder Ti-a. By adding The Factory’s concept to Vietnam’s art scene, Ti-a’s ambition is to provide a multicultural space where ideas can be shared, nourished and grow.

Vi Vi Phạm  
Marketing & Event Coordinator 

Dù không đặc biệt theo học chuyên ngành Nghệ Thuật, Vi Vi Phạm đã tìm thấy cho mình niềm đam mê dành cho cộng đồng sáng tạo, đặc biệt là sự bùng nổ của Nghệ thuật trong đời sống của thế hệ đồng trang lứa và cách làn sóng này thôi thúc người trẻ khám phá tìm năng của bản thân. Niềm đam mê này đã trở thành động lực để cô đồng hành cùng The Factory từ những ngày đầu tiên, với mục tiêu mang nghệ sĩ đến gần hơn với công chúng. Ngoài chịu trách nhiệm truyền thông cho toàn bộ các triển lãm và hoạt động tại The Factory, cô còn quản lý tổ chức các sự kiện không thuộc chủ đề nghệ thuật. Những hoạt động tiêu biểu mà cô từng tham gia: Nghiên cứu và hỗ trợ dịch thuật cho sách ‘Advertising and public memory : social, cultural and historical perspectives on ghost signs’ (2015) cùng nghệ sĩ Cristina Nualart; dịch thuật và điều phối cho triển lãm ‘The Silver Room’ (2017) của nghệ sĩ Ti-a; cộng tác nội dung cho tạp chí Word Việt Nam (2015 – 2016).
