Program Overview

Asia Society presents programs that cover a broad range of topics and disciplines including arts and culture, policy and business, and global education. Programs and initiatives play an important role in strengthening dialogue between Asia and the United States, and help to provide a nuanced understanding of the uniqueness and diversity of Asia. Programs are held in New York, Hong Kong, and Houston, and other major cities in the United States, Europe, and Asia. The Society presents Asia’s greatest artistic achievements through critically acclaimed exhibitions of traditional, modern and contemporary art, as well as performances, artist talks, films and symposia. These programs illuminate Asian history, culture and societies in their broader contexts. Asia Society also provides a forum for the leaders who shape the Asia Pacific political and business environment, and provides expert insights and analysis on critical issues. Reports and other initiatives assess the current political and economic landscape, and trends affecting the U.S.-Asia relationship. The global education agenda includes work with educators, school districts both domestic and international, parents and communities to provide the tools necessary to better prepare young people for global citizenship. Among its achievements are the establishment of the first network of U.S. urban secondary schools devoted to international studies. Information about Asia Society and its programs is available online at www.AsiaSociety.org.
