Established in 1981, the Federation for Asian Cultural Promotion (FACP) is a registered non-governmental organization founded to facilitate cultural exchange within Asia and dialogue with counterparts in the global arts industry. It provides a platform for arts practitioners to network, exchange ideas and discuss the latest industry-specific issues and trends in the Asia-Pacific region. In addition to forging greater cooperation among the existing member cities, namely Bangkok, Beijing, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Macau, Manila, Seoul, Singapore, Taipei and Tokyo, the FACP also aims to both add more member cities in Asia and promote Asian cultures to the West. It welcomes members from all over the world to its 38th Annual Conference in an online format this year and continues to strive for opportunities for the arts community to connect through diverse channels.

The founding members of FACP were Dr. Lucresia Kasilag, the then President of the Cultural Center of the Philippines and National Artist for Music, Mr. Hsu Po Yun of Taipei, President of the New Aspect Promotion Corporation, Mr. Tadashi Yokoyama of the Nippon Cultural Center, Mr. Seong-Tae Kim of the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra and Mr. Apratty from UNESCO.
