About Us

New Meridian Arts is a non-profit organization dedicated to the artistic exchange between cultures through a wide variety of activities, from book publishing and magazine production, to visual and performing arts. In this era of globalization which comes with its own political and cultural challenges, multiculturalism is a priority in order to better understand the world and its diversity. New Meridian Arts hopes to give voice to original and over-looked international writers of talent and scope, encouraging translations of their works from and into English. We are interested in artists who can make a difference to the American cultural environment, in order to broaden and facilitate American access to the rich contemporary life of letters and arts found in other parts of the globe.
