The aim of ASF is to create a platform for dialogue for many generations of artists, the confrontation of students and teachers and to promote the highest artistic quality. Moreover, it seeks to stay as the most open to the public, bridging the gap between the artist and the audience.

The foundation organizes exhibitions (contemporary visual arts, photography and design), presentations of performing arts (theater and dance) as well as film screenings and music concerts in the Old Brewery in Poznan. The complex of Old Brewery includes huge art spaces, a shopping center and a unique interactive art hotel „Blow up Hall“.
