The Hungarian Multicultural Center, Inc. (HMC) is a 501(c)(3) educational non-profit
corporation, founded in 1990. HMC's mission is to bridge cultural, geographic, and linguistic divides by bringing people
together through the arts in order to foster a greater understanding of world cultures.
The HMC's cultural programs are film screening, concerts, workshops, seminars, exhibitions,
videofestivals and artists' residencies.
The INTERNATIONAL ARTIST-In-RESIDENCY PROGRAM was founded in 1995. HMC offers a unique
opportunity for artists chosen from around the world: the opportunity to reside and work as a resident artist in an atmosphere
designed to stimulate personal vision and encourage new and exciting artistic expressions.
It is neither a school nor an artist`s
colony. It does, however, offer an opportunity for professional artists to explore their full creative potential.
Residencies and exhibitions are yet another way to bring the contemporary art
and artists featured in the series directly to local communities and audiences. Providing an opportunity to interact with
new work and new ideas, residencies can initiate important conversations and create forums for further public dialogue.
Facilitating connections between artists and different communities can deepen the conversations started in the broadcast
series. Involving the artists directly in outreach is an important aspect of the HMC series.
