Russian Cultural Centre



The Russian Cultural Centre is the official home of Russian culture in the United States. It is created pursuant to a bilateral agreement between the United States and Russia providing for cultural centers in both countries. This institution is a public private partnership between the Russian Government and the supporting American nonprofit organization, the Friends of the Russian Cultural Centre. The purpose of the RCC and FRCC is to develop and maintain positive relations between the Russian and American people by sponsoring activities in the areas of Education, The Arts, Commerce, Athletics and Science. The RCC cooperates with the numerous Russian-American organizations in both countries and has liaisons with universities, museums and other cultural institutions across the U.S. and Russia. This Russian government building, whose early American occupants owned the Hope Diamond and Washington Post, is a museum, research library and classroom of Russian culture and a stage for exhibits and the performing arts. The Russian American Room chronicles and exhibits examples of Russian-American cooperation from 18th century commercial trade, to Catherine the Great and John Paul Jones, to allies in World War II, to our continuing joint ventures in space. The 21st century goal of the RCC is “That our two nations never again polarize”. We have been too long deprived of each other’s company. It is high time we became reacquainted.
