The Asian Cultural Council (ACC) is a publicly supported American non-profit organization dedicated to providing support to the Asian-American cultural exchange in areas of visual and performing arts. The foundation was first established in 1980, in memory of John D. Rockefeller 3rd.

Overview

Now having been operating for more than 43 years, the council takes the role as a medium between donating bodies and worthy artists in need for financial aid. Over the years, the Asian Cultural Council has given unconditional support and effort in developing the shared arts community by creating numerous invaluable opportunities for artists in Asia and America to develop their talents on the opposite side of the globe.

The new movement in the arts community represents a big step for many hidden artists from developing countries in Asia: worthy artists who are awarded with grants or selected to take part in the ACC’s fellowship programs are not only given the chance to learn and broaden their arts knowledge, they also hold the greater duty to expose the more niche subcultures from home to the rest of the world and in turn bringing pride and glory to their country. The ACC has in its years of operation witnessed countless new artistic products resulted from gains in exchange experiences, stimulating new ideas and new works, and ultimately moving the Asian art industry forward to a new generation.

To expand the circle of the existing arts community, the ACC uses endowment incomes and donations to implement specially designed programs that intend to facilitate local artists to reach their greatest potentials in arts: The ACC offers a total of ten fellowship programs, one unrestricted project fund and one grant award so far.

The ten fellowship programs are allocated specific to their location, content or donor body. They include: ACC Residency Program in Asia, Asian Art and Religion Fellowship Program, Ford Foundation Fellowship Program, Hong Kong Arts Program, Humanities Fellowship Program, Japan-United States Arts Program, Mekong Region Fellowship Program, Philippines Fellowship Program, Starr Foundation Fellowship Program. The unrestricted project fund is known as “ACC Fellowships and Projects” and an annual grant award of $30,000 named after John D. Rockefeller 3rd.

History

The Asian Cultural Council was first established in 1980. Previously known as the Asian Cultural Program of the JDR 3rd Fund, the body was created in 1963 by John D. Rockefeller 3rd. The Asian Cultural Council has headquarters in New York, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Taipei. The council and The JDR 3rd Fund have provided grant assistance to more than 4000 Asians and Americans for cultural exchange experiences in visual arts and performing arts areas for the past 43 years.

Aims

The Council's main objective is to provide support for the cultural exchange between Asia and the United States. The ACC does this by providing grants to Asian applicants in areas of research, study and work in the arts areas of the United States, and similarly, to American applicants who wish to work in the art sector in Asia. In addition, grants are awarded to various educational and cultural institutions in Asia and the United States to promote Asian-American cultural exchange.

Mission Statement

"The arts are central to the lives of people around the world and offer unique opportunities for the growth of communication, respect and mutual understanding among citizens of all nations."Fact|date=February 2007

Types of Donors

Asian-American cultural exchange programs are funded by a range of endowment donors, ranging from multi-national corporations, to large charitable foundations, to smaller individual contributions from across the globe.

Annual Donors

Apart from the more detached funding relationships between endowment donors and the Asian Cultural Council (ACC), the ACC Grant program also receives long-term support from annual and multi-year funds, contributed by committed donors. In the past, such contributions have led to major succession in the growth of the Asian Cultural Council by expanding the council works across Asia, allowing such programs to be accessible to developing countries as well as influencing more nations to understand the importance of cultural exchange between ethnic groups.

Fund Placements and Donors in Asia

The Asian Cultural Council currently has four grant programs across Asia funded by local donors. The four grant programs are located in Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan and the Philippines.

Projects undertaken and research conducted involve the interdisciplinary analysis of arts and religion. The program focuses on the relationship between the traditions of arts and religion in Asia, and takes into account architecture, museum studies and historic preservation and conservation. It was established with the funds from endowment donor Lawrance S. Rockefeller. This program is eligible only to Americans.

For instance, University of Hawaii, University of California - UCLA International Institute, University of Michigan allow funding from this program.

Ford Foundation Fellowship Program

Humanities Fellowhip Program

This program aims to assist American scholars, doctoral students, and specialists in the humanities to undertake research, training and study in Asia, especially in the following fields: archaeology, conservation, museology and theory, history and criticism of architecture, art, dance, film, music, photography, and theater. Its primary objective is to support American scholars and graduates. This program was initiated by a supporting grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, The JDR 3rd Fund and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Apart from assisting American scholars, the program also supports Asian scholars to participate in international conferences, exhibitions, visiting professors and similar projects. The duration of fellowship grants range from one to nine months.

Japan-United States Arts Program

The Japan-United States Arts Program of the ACC aims to encourage the study and understanding of Japanese art and culture. The program provides grants to individuals and institutions in Japan and the United States. Japanese artists, scholars, and specialists who are awarded fellowship grants are able to travel to the United States for research, observation, creative work and allow their American counterparts to visit Japan for similar purposes.

The Japan- United States Arts Program is supported by Seibu Saison Group which provides funds as well as an endowment gift from the Japan Foundation. The Saison Foundation has contributed annual supplementary funding for the program since 1989.The ACC's Blanchette H. Rockefeller Fellowship Fund in Japan also provides additional support. The ACC's office in Tokyo assists the administration of the program.

John D. Rockefeller 3rd Award

This award is funded by The JDR 3rd Fund with a worth of HKD$30,000. The award is granted to one individual from either Asia or the United States who has contributed the most to the international understanding, practice, or study of the visual or performing arts of Asia. Candidates for this award are selected by artists, scholars, and others who are professionally involved in Asian art and culture. The recipients are chosen by the trustees of the ACC after obtaining in depth knowledge on the nominees' background, such as the professional activities and accomplishments obtained. This award allows the recipient to continue work in areas of arts in Asia with awarded subsidies in travel and research expenses.

Mekong Region Fellowhip Program

The Mekong Region Fellowship program assists individual artists and specialists from Burma, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, and China’s Yunnan Province in undertaking research, study, and creative projects in the United States and Asia.It is a six-year program which is funded by the Rockefeller Foundation. Special projects that encourage regional collaboration and partnership are also provided by the program.

Philippines Fellowship Program

The Philippines Fellowship Program was established by the ACC in 2000 to support talented artists and scholars in the Philippines. The scholarship grants however began in the 1960s, and, as of present, has sponsored more than 100 talented artists and scholars in the Philippines. This Fellowship program allows Filipinos to harness and practice their talents.

Grants in fields such as archaeology, music, art history, art criticism, painting, photography, etc., are offered to qualified individuals. It is important to note however that priority is given to those who are incapable to fund their studies or research in the United States. This also suggests that any recipients of said grants are expected to go back to the Philippines and apply their research and field of study in their hometown. This arrangement not only allows the students and scholars to apply their new found knowledge in their home country, but also, allows the Philippines to develop more as scholars and learned individuals who are given the chance for better higher learning come back to apply their skills.

Starr Foundation Fellowship Program

Established by endowment incomes from the Starr Foundation, Starr Foundation Fellowship Program intends to promote Asian-American art exchange by funding Asian art specialists to visit the United States for art development.

Grants are awarded to art-related proposals that contribute to art criticism, arts craft, filmic arts, museology arts, painting, photography, print-making, sculptures and video.

The fellowship assists three quarters of the full tuition fees and a reasonable amount for living expenses over the course. The program is eligible for applicants from specific countries of the South East Asia: Burma, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, The Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

Apart from the program’s primary incentive of funding local Asian art specialists to experience a foreign taste in artwork, many institutions in the United States now also take the opportunity to promote the program to students from South East Asia.

Taiwan Fellowship Program

The Taiwan Fellowship Program was established in 1995 by the Asian Cultural Council (ACC) and the Sino-American Asian Cultural Foundation (SAACF). The latter established SAACF was purposely set-up to serve as the ACC’s helping hand in raising funds to make grants for art devotees in Taiwan for research in the United States, and to American art devotees to participate in cultural exchange projects organized by local institutions in Taiwan. As a result in efforts to push forward the Taiwan art culture, a support group Group 33 was started by Cecile Shah, director of ACC-SAACF, five years ago and formed by Art fanatics who meet twice a month to organize art-related funding activities and gains are donated to support ACC grantees each year.

The ACC-SAACF office in Taipei, under the chairmanship of Mr. Douglas Hsu, supports up to eight grant recipients each year. This new collaboration is in charge for all fundraising, application procedures, grantee programming for the project and acquires funds from individual, corporate, foundational donors in Taiwan.
