Moreover, the event would help strengthen relationships among upcoming artists which would lead to lifestyle and social development.

The "Bualuang Rising Star 101" Project is held for the first time in 2008, producing many young artists who have become and played many prominent roles in the art industry from professional artists, art professors as well as having the chance to study in Thailand and overseas. The "Bualuang Rising Star 101" Project is considered one of the top stages that provide opportunities and open the horizon for all art students.

Khunying Chodchoy added that "Next Step: Thai Art is looking forward" topic is given by one of the national artists, Professor Thongchai Rugpatum who derived the idea from one of the Bualuang Rising Star 101's identity as the Bualuang has always been focusing on supporting the next generation to move the Thai contemporary art scene forwards to the future. Besides, Thai artistic scene in different generations reflects the soul and social status in each particular era. While modern Thai art had smoothly and beautifully driven along with the nation's evolution and the global trend. Based on Thailand history, art in each era has its own identity and has become the nation's heritages until nowadays.
