Tayitu Cultural and Educational Center had its humble beginning at a gathering for a book launch and reading. It has since become a trailblazing non-profit (501 c 3) organization that nurtures the arts and culture of Ethiopia and promotes it among the uniquely diverse community of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area where the organization is based.
Despite the many challenges faced by community-based arts and cultural institutions, TCC recognized early on that the occasional special production was not going to be enough to keep Ethiopian artistic and cultural legacy vibrant for coming generations and stepped in to fill the void.
TCC has been recognized locally, nationally and internationally for its work in showcasing the wealth of Ethiopian art and culture to diverse international audiences despite the many challenges it was confronted with. TCC continues its mission of conserving and revitalizing the rich Ethiopian cultural, social and artistic treasure while simultaneously exploring new artistic forms in our new homeland of America.
