Cultural Events

The Cultural Events co-chairs arrange Asia-related cultural events of interest for the membership, e.g. curator or docent-led tours of museum exhibitions, visits to private collections, tours of embassies, or demonstrations of arts such as calligraphy, dance, or ikebana. Most cultural evens are held in the Washington D.C. area, but special exhibitions in other cities may be scheduled.
