The Asian and Asian American Arts and Culture Program

This season, we celebrate 28 years of our Asian and Asian American Arts and Culture Program, with a mission to present the artistic and cultural heritages and living practices of Asia (broadly defined) and the Asian American experience as a lens to promote cultural awareness, intercultural dialogue, and social justice. Through performances, educational outreach, community engagement, and residencies by artists, scholars, and other experts, we serve learning communities and audiences at UMass and the Five Colleges and greater western Massachusetts region, as well as nationally and internationally through virtual programs. We have presented such world-class artists as Kodo, Cloud Gate Dance Theater, Amjad Ali Khan, and Sankai Juku, contemporary innovators like Takao Kawaguchi, Kristina Wong, and Kadri Gopalnath, traditional masters such as Zakir Hussain and Sidi Goma, and many others.
