New York

As ACC’s headquarters, we provide artists, scholars, and arts professionals opportunities for transformative cultural exchange in Asia and the United States. Alongside our colleagues in Hong Kong, Manila, Taipei, and Tokyo, we provide programming and funding for Asia-to-U.S., U.S.-to-Asia, and intra-Asia exchanges.

In 1980, the Asian Cultural Council was established as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization through a $2 million endowment gift, which has enabled more than $100 million in grants to support cultural exchange.

We continue to raise funds for both our grants and programs and towards ACC’s future growth. Amidst the dynamic and exciting arts landscape of New York City, our office serves as an active convener and leader within the field of arts, culture, and philanthropy.
