Asia Society

URL: http://www.asiasociety.org/

The Asia Society is America's leading institution dedicated to fostering understanding of Asia and communication between Americans and the peoples of Asia and the Pacific.Through art exhibitions and performances, films, lectures, seminars and conferences, publications and assistance to the media, and materials and programs for students and teachers, the Asia Society presents the uniqueness and diversity of Asia to the American people.

Founded in 1956 by John D. Rockefeller 3rd, the Society reaches audiences around the United States through its headquarters in New York and regional centers in Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington, DC. Asians from all walks of life also participate in the Society's work through its regional centers in Hong Kong, Manila, Melbourne and Shanghai, an International Council, and programs in Asia.

A national nonprofit, nonpartisan educational organization, the Society provides a forum for building awareness of the more than thirty countries broadly defined as the Asia-Pacific region - the area from Japan to Iran, and from Central Asia to New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific Islands.

The Asia Society is supported by contributions from foundations, corporations, and individuals who believe in the mandate of the Society: to build bridges of understanding between Americans and Asians.
