Arts and Cultural Exchange

The Asia Center encourages exchange programs among the people of Asia in a wide range of fields such as visual arts, film/moving images, performing arts, sports, and intellectual and grassroots exchange. Paying attention to the interactive and collaborative aspects, and respecting the inherent diversity in each region and country, we aim to generate new cultures together through our many cultural programs.
