Czech Center in New York City

About Us

The Czech Center New York (CC NY) is a meeting place for Czech and local culture, a place where artists and professionals, Czech and non-Czech alike, can get to know each other and talk about their work, and produce work together, when the chance presents itself. Though of course our focus is on contemporary Czech artists, we are open to any idea that addresses current cultural or social themes, and are committed to the support of new international projects.

The Czech Center works closely with prominent individuals and institutions, Czechs and Americans alike, to aid us in our mission of promoting the Czech Republic in the United States.

The CC NY was established in 1995. Since 2008, our offices have been located in the newly reconstructed Bohemian National Hall (BNH), which we share with the Czech Consulate General and the Bohemian Benevolent & Literary Association (BBLA). The BNH now serves as a common space for presenting Czech culture, trade and tourism in the United States, reminding us of the Czech immigrants who once resided in this part of Manhattan. The Czech Center NY is supported by contributions and membership dues, which are 100 % tax deductible through our partner BBLA (501 (c) (3) not-for-profit association).
