Bengal Foundation is a private trust dedicated to the promotion and development of art and culture in Bangladesh. It was established in the late 80s. The Foundation's aim is to encourage a regional exchange of thoughts, ideas and practices and to present Bangladesh's cultural heritage to the world. It invests in reinforcing value systems that are critical to the preservation and continuation of cultural practices. In order to provide a congenial venue for cultural events, the Foundation established the Bengal Gallery of Fine Arts in April 2000. In its amazingly successful run the Gallery has showcased the work of over 250 local and international artists to date, and has published 200 brochures on art. In a bid to promote and educate the general public in the appreciation of art and music, the Gallery organizes talks, shows and seminars. To date, along with the shows, 35 documentary films have been published on Bangladeshi art and artists. Every two years, the Bengal Foundation Award is issued to artists for outstanding work featured in the Shilpakala Academy National Art Exhibition.
