Balassi Institute

Balassi Institute is a network of cultural matchmakers, Hungarian centers of culture in 23 countries and all seeking to link up artists, academics, arts and culture professionals and audiences in processes of exchange and bridgebuilding between societies. It is an agency overseen by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs but enjoying substantial autonomy to promote Hungarian and Central European culture, often through collaborative efforts - a principle especially relevant in a scene as saturated with great productions as New York City and the United States. As the only US representation of the Balassi network, the Hungarian Cultural Center in New York attempts to present the multicultural past and present of Hungarian arts and society to American audiences while also inviting professionals and artists from the United States to engage with their Hungarian counterparts back home. The more Center succeeds in fostering Transatlantic cultural dialogues, the more it is fulfilling its principal role.
