The Iberoamerican Cultural Attachés Association (AACIA) is a non-profit association with the mission to promote, disseminate and preserve the heritage, culture and art of Ibero-America in the Washington, D.C. area, working actively in building bridges between Latin America, Portugal and Spain, with the United States. This mission is achieved through cultural activities that bring together a varied audience and outreach media.
The cultural activities the Association has organized showcase the cultural values of Ibero-America and the immense diversity that depicts the essence of these countries. In doing so, the events with most relevance have been the Ibero-American Film Showcase in D.C., the annual Noche Ibero-Americana fundraiser event, and the Ibero-American Photography Exhibition.
