Established in 2020, the Abai Center offers a sense of Kazakh history, traditions and culture, featuring the latest findings of scholars, artists and writers.

Run in collaboration with George Washington University’s Central Asia Program (CAP) and the Institute for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies (IERES), it is both a virtual space for articles and welcoming host of discussions on literature, arts, cinema, music, history, archeology and anthropology. Featured events include guest lectures, roundtables, readings, cultural exhibitions and film screenings.

We encourage broad public discussion on the evolving place of Kazakh culture in the world, building bridges among nations and strengthening people-to-people ties.
