Asian American Resource Center Building

The Asian American Resource Center’s mission is to create a space of belonging and healing for Asian American communities in Austin and beyond. We do this through community collaborations and partnerships; providing rental space; organizing cultural, educational and health wellness programs; and curating art and historical exhibitions. We lead with our values and our vision, so that our diverse communities are supported and connected.

The Asian American Resource Center is open, Monday – Friday 10am-6pm and Saturday 10am-4pm. We provide both virtual and in person events for the community. Visit our Events Calendar to learn more. View the Virtual Reality Tour of Asian American Resource Center.
