Mission

The Asian Arts & Culture Center at Towson University engages the university and surrounding communities in cross-cultural dialogue through a broad range of artistic and cultural learning experiences related to Asia. Our programs increase understanding of the world's diverse cultures, challenge stereotypes, strengthen cultural competency, and offer unique perspectives on creativity and the human experience. We also offer opportunities for university students to learn practical skills needed for working in non-profit cultural institutions.

A Call for Peace, Equity & Sharing

Established in 1971 to challenge the dehumanization of Asians that fueled U.S. imperialist interests in Southeast Asia, the Asian Arts & Culture Center (AA&CC) vehemently condemns all forms of hatred, violence and racism against Asians. AA&CC continues a 50-year tradition of producing accessible, engaging and inclusive educational programs that foreground Asian stories and foster dialogue across diverse communities. We encourage everyone to not only speak out against anti-Asian hate, but to also advocate for greater cultural equity and promote conversations across communities by sharing Asian stories. The more we listen to one another and exchange experiences, the more empathy and understanding we can build. Confront the ignorance that fuels hate by helping others know how Asian lives are a part of everyone’s lives in our interconnected world.
