To provide an enriching and welcoming environment for all who seek to strengthen the bonds of community, culture and cross-cultural understanding.

About the Persian Cultural Center

As a means of facilitating its mission PCC has formed the following affiliated entities: the Iranian School of San Diego (ISSD) (now in its 31st year offering language classes to both children and adults), the Persian Dance Academy (teaching a variety of folkloric dances to children and adults), the PCC Charity (raising funds for humanitarian causes such as families and individuals in financial crisis in our community), and Peyk (a bilingual, bimonthly magazine, professionally published, and with an approximate circulation of 6000).

PCC’s core activities are multifaceted and include musical concerts, lectures, art exhibitions, dance performances, as well as language, theater, traditional instrument, and art classes. The variety of PCC’s programming draws a diverse patronage extending far beyond San Diego. We seek and welcome all members of the San Diego community and visitors to the City to enjoy and participate in our events and presentations. To this end our programs/events are non-partisan and secular, with artistic and cultural value being the ultimate benchmarks.
