About us: ArteEast, Inc., a non-profit organization based in Brooklyn, NY, is the first organization of its kind promoting Middle Eastern arts in the United States with a unique multicultural approach to covering a wide spectrum of Middle Eastern artists and viewpoints rather focusing solely on artists and projects from one nation, ethnicity or region.
ArteEast, Inc., seeks to increase the visibility of the arts and cultures of the Middle East in the United States through collaborative projects with universities, community groups, museums and cultural institutions.
This mission will be achieved by presenting cultural events in the New York City metropolitan area and by producing traveling exhibits and events throughout the country. ArteEast also supports the production of artistic works pertaining to the Middle East in various media, including, but not limited to, the visual arts, music, theater, and film. We offer a collective experience of ten years in film programming, community, and educational outreach. Our film and educational programs build on longstanding relationships with universities and other non-profit organizations.
ArteEast is a fiscally sponsored organization of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
