Our mission is to bridge communities and generations through art, culture, education and business.

Asia Pacific Cultural Center (APCC) serves as an interactive cultural crossroads between local and international communities.

APCC is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization was formed in November 1996 from the vision of a small group of citizens representing three generations of Americans from Asian and Pacific Islanders heritage. APCC represents 47 countries and cultures, offering programs and services honoring their distinct artistry, business protocols, history and social practices.



May 2017. Last night at 5pm at the City of Tacoma Council Chambers, APCC and many Asian Pacific Community leaders and youth of Tacoma/Pierce County attended to receive the first time ever, a Proclamation declaring and honoring the National Asian Pacific Heritage Month of May in the city of Tacoma, WA. So much appreciation goes to Tacoma Mayor Strickland, Deputy Mayor Thoms and the entire Tacoma Council for honoring our Asian Pacific people in the City of Tacoma. We pray its the beginning of a great effort for the City of Tacoma to present an annual proclamation in honor of the National Asian Pacific Heritage Month of May towards in the future. THANK YOU SO MUCH City of Tacoma government, we appreciate you!!
