Asian Cultural Council Hong Kong

The Hong Kong arm of the Asian Cultural Council, which was founded in 1963 by John D Rockefeller III, came into being in 1986 thanks to a group of friends who were passionate about the arts, particularly the development of the local arts scene and making the arts more accessible

The Asian Cultural Council is as much about cultural exchange as the arts. It also supports professionals in arts-related fields, taking a long-term, individually tailored approach to that support.

The council’s three key components are its fellowship programme, its alumni network and its strategic development arm. Fellowships are awarded to talented individuals who then benefit from funding, resources and access to the council’s extensive network of creative individuals and institutions.

The alumni network is an impressive community of artists, scholars and other arts professionals who collaborate and exchange ideas. Finally, the strategic development arm works to increase the council’s funding.

Local and regional fellowship alumni include Mainland Chinese contemporary artist Cai Guo-Qiang and local ink artist Wucius Wong. Among the many supporters of the Hong Kong chapter are Robert and Chantal Miller, Douglas Young and Cissy Pao-Watari
