ACC has had a tremendous year of new initiatives. Our grantees led innovative online and in-person projects advancing international understanding, including: an online exchange program on experimental art practices by Waley Art (Taiwan) between artists from Taiwan, Korea, Japan, and Hong Kong; an online webinar series on traditional East Asian musical forms and instruments, Project SEED, by Chatori Shimizu from Japan and JunYi Chow from Malaysia; and Hong Kong artist Wing Ki (Kalen) Lee’s research in media archeology and digital humanities in the U.S.

Judy Kim, ACC’s new Executive Director, has set forth her vision for ACC, activated our global team, and laid the groundwork for ACC’s next chapter as we enter our 60th anniversary starting in 2022.

At the heart of ACC, our alumni continue to create and collaborate throughout some of the most challenging moments of our time. We are inspired by the ways that each individual sparks a ripple effect of dialogue and curiosity — the pillars of cross-cultural understanding — across Asia and the United States. As always, our grantees and alumni speak best to our mission, as articulated in the video below:

Please consider making a gift to ACC this year. Your gift directly impacts our ability to continue supporting artists who share our belief that cultural exchange is the most powerful vehicle for global connectivity, mutual understanding, and respect.
