Albanian Institute New York is an independent arts and educational institution established under the laws of the State of New York. We identify and promote emerging artists who have distinguished themselves for their unique talent. Located in New York City, the world’s capital of art and culture, the Institute’s focus lies across the spectrum of arts, culture, society, business and education.
We reach out across cultures and continents to create meaningful connections with inspirational people and ideas, philanthropists and organizations to broaden our joint influence and help build a stronger global community. We work to make visible the role of arts and culture as a positive force in changing people’s lives, creating values, supporting democracy, benefiting economies, and strengthening our societies. We exist to create opportunities, to bring about positive change and lasting impact.
