Founded in 2002 by Dr. Apichart Pholprasert, BRAC is designed to be a centre for creative practitioners to work in a Thai rural context along side friendly farmers. It is set up in a Banpao village, Chiyaphum Province, north east of Thailand. The philosophy for BRAC's creative activities is based on a correspondence between artistic and agricultural practices.
Wendy Grace Allen was Artist-in-Residence at BRAC from late 2008 till early 2009, where she worked on The Border Crossing Art Project and her up and coming Rural Go Go exhibition.
Assistant Professor Dr. Caroline Mercier (Department of Theatre, California State University) was artist-in-residence from June 15th–August 18th 2006.
