INNER CIRCLE is a membership program initiated by The Factory in 2019 to encourage practitioners of the arts in Vietnam to attend our programs and activities. It aims to strengthen our local art community’s connection through exhibitions, events, programs, discussions and special-created gatherings, hoping to connect and network talent and skill, offering a way for us to better understand our local arts community, engaging future potential artists and creators for The Factory to collaborate.

INNER CIRCLE also seeks to support low-income art practitioners, in order to enable their participation in The Factory’s creative activities and positively contribute to the Vietnamese art scene.
