Azerbaijan Trade and Cultural Center

The Azerbaijan Trade and Cultural Center (ATCC) was founded by USACC in September 2000 to promote mutual understanding and cooperation between the United States of America and Republic of Azerbaijan. It was inaugurated on September 11 by His Excellency Heydar Aliyev, President, Republic of Azerbaijan.

USACC owns this four-floor historic mansion located in the heart of Georgetown. ATCC hosts Azerbaijan Gallery, USACC offices and an apartment for USACC interns.

Located on two floors, the Azerbaijan Gallery displays an exhibition of rugs, paintings and ethnic crafts from Azerbaijan. The Gallery is open to public from 12.00 p.m. through 5.00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Some of the exhibited artwork is also for sale. We present you the most authentic and beautiful rugs and artwork from Azerbaijan, which can also decorate your homes and offices. Proceeds from the sale are donated to the International Rescue Committee to construct additional schools for refugee children and sustain the existing refugee schools in Azerbaijan. By purchasing rugs and artworks from The Azerbaijan Gallery, our patrons also support some 153,000 refugee children in Azerbaijan.

The two-floor Gallery is also available for rent to individuals and/or corporations. We offer you this beautifully decorated historic mansion in the heart of Georgetown where you may host your guests for a cocktail, dinner or other special occasion. Again proceeds from the rent are donated to sustain the USACC Humanitarian Mission.

Azerbaijan Trade and Cultural Center offers significant benefits and expands the mission of the USACC.

Throughout the year, USACC hosts exhibitions and small-size cultural performances in the Azerbaijan Gallery. These exhibitions and performances feature renowned Azerbaijani musicians and artists. ATCC creates a unique opportunity for the rich Azerbaijani culture to find its way to the United States. Through the language of music and arts, the Chamber creates more understanding between the American people and the people of Azerbaijan.

Through sales of the artwork and rental of the space, we have managed to diversify the funding source for our projects and acquired an independent source of funding to sustain the USACC Humanitarian Mission: Pilot School Construction for Refugee Children.

ATCC has also allowed USACC to acquire a larger office space, which, in turn, has expanded the breadth of the Chamber's programmatic activities. We plan to increase the number and size of functions, i.e. forums, workshops, breakfast and/or luncheon meetings, as well as diversify the format of these functions to better serve the needs of our members. The larger office space also allows us to expand the existing constituency beyond USACC membership, involve additional constituency in USACC functions and better accommodate the increasing number of guests at these functions.

Operating expenses of the organization have decreased significantly, and funds saved are routed toward enhancement of programmatic activities.

ATCC has become a landmark, which hosts the American and Azerbaijan flags and is symbol of the American-Azerbaijani partnership.
