Modern Art Projects Blue Mountains (MAPBM) acknowledges the Darug and Gundungurra peoples on whose land we live and work. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging. We acknowledge that sovereignty has never been ceded.

Modern Art Projects Blue Mountains (MAPBM) is a not-for-profit incorporated association that supports and advocates for the development, production and exhibition of contemporary, multi-form art in the Blue Mountains. MAPBM also aims to foster an independent environment that supports the development and practice of contemporary artists and curators and to engage with the wider Blue Mountains community in developing a new critical agenda for contemporary art in the region.

MAPBM was established by a group of predominantly Blue Mountains-based artists. It is run by artists, curators and others who are interested in, and dedicated to, the promotion and advocacy of contemporary art. MAPBM has partnered with a number of organisations in developing innovative exhibitions and projects and has received funding from the Blue Mountains City of the Arts Trust, Create NSW, Festivals Australia, the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal and a range of other agencies and foundations. Our recent major projects include Lumière: Mt Victoria's Festival of the Moving Image and Carnivale Catastrophe at Cementa 22.
