Big Sky Mind Artists‚ Projects Foundation, an independent artist-run organization based in Manila, Philippines, offers studio residencies to young visual artists at the 18th Avenue Artists Compound in Cubao, Quezon City.

Located in a warehouse complex, the Compound offers young artists space to create and develop their work amidst an environment of community, camaraderie and professional support. The Residency Program grants one-year studio residencies to young Filipino visual artists and short-term residencies to foreign visiting artists.

The Compound has three studios for local artists and one studio for foreign artists.
