About us

Albanian Institute is a contemporary art and cultural institution dedicated to presenting and promoting all forms of arts, supporting education and community, celebrating heritage and contemporary culture.

Programs range from music to literature, film to theatre and dance, visual arts, to architecture, design and fashion, in addition to talks and lecture series, with collaborations across these disciplines and others, in the U.S. and around the world.
Our work is directly informed by those shaping the cultural conversation as we speak. From live events and performance, to intimate discussions and gatherings – our programming invites the community to come together, discuss, share and celebrate higher lerning that broaden our understanding, and the power of the arts to challenge, activate, and nourish the human spirit.
