The Canadian Society for Asian Arts was founded in 1969 as a non-profit multicultural organization by a diverse group of scholars, connoisseurs, collectors and other individuals who shared a devotion to Asian arts and cultures. The CSAA is uniquely pan-Asian in its mission, its program focus, its membership, and its governing Board. The purpose of the Society is to promote the appreciation and understanding of the arts of Asia by bringing quality programs, exhibitions and publications to interested groups and individuals in Canada and by exploring links among the cultures of Asia. Since 1969, the CSAA has presented hundreds of events on Asian Arts and cultures, including:
- Exhibition and art shows
- Lectures and slide shows
- Discussion panels and demonstrations
- Performing arts events
- Excursions to Asian arts events
What Sustains the Society?
- Community-based volunteer effort and support
- Membership dues
- Revenues from fees for events and publication sales
The Society warmly welcomes the interest and participation of any and all who care to discover or enhance their appreciation of Asian Arts and Culture. Please join us!
