The Arte Institute (AI), founded in 2011, is a non-profit organization that promotes Portuguese culture and offers a creative environment for Portuguese artists in the fields of visual art, cinema, music, literature, performance, and dance. This environment fosters a unique exchange, showing how art can bridge audiences of different cultural backgrounds. AI creates and strengthens the community’s cultural identity by making a connection to the cultural environment in New York City.
