The Asian Cultural Council (ACC) is the only organization in the world whose sole mission is to support cultural exchange between the United States and Asia and within the countries of Asia. Headquartered in New York city, the ACC maintains offices in Hong Kong and Tokyo with partner Foundations in Manila and Taipei. Grants are awarded for research and creative projects across a wide spectrum of the performing and visual arts, and across both traditional and contemporary concentrations. Some grants are also made to educational and cultural organizations engaged in projects of special significance to Asian-American exchange. The ACC is both a grant-making and grant-seeking organization, raising funding from corporate, foundation and individual donors in both the United States and Asia.
