About RCI NY

The Romanian Cultural Institute (RCI) is a public agency dedicated to cultural diplomacy and international arts exchange. Born in its present form out of the rehabilitation of the notion of Romanian cultural cooperation, the RCI has thrived, since 2005, under the guidance of a new and visionary executive board.

Through its network of dynamic antennas, RCI has forged a highly visible and flourishing open space for intercultural dialogue, connecting vibrant Romanian arts and artists to the evolving international scene.

The primary mission of RCINY is to connect Romanian and American culture and to encourage dynamic interactions between creative individuals, organizations and ideas.
