Through its network of dynamic antennas, RCI has forged a highly visible and flourishing open space for intercultural dialogue, connecting vibrant Romanian arts and artists to the evolving international scene.

The primary mission of RCINY is to connect Romanian and American culture and to encourage dynamic interactions between creative individuals, organizations and ideas.
