ABOUT & HISTORY

The Mongolian Culture and Heritage Center of Colorado (MCHCC) was founded in 2003 by artist and philantrophist Mr.Tsogo Mijid. Formerly known as “Mon-Ael Mongolian Culture Center for the Arts”, our organization originally consisted of nine professional performing and fine arts members ranging from visual artists, contortionist, dancers, singers, and musicians. In 2015, MCHCC received 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization status. We proudly take the invaluable paradigm history of our organization as foundation in moving forward with our vision to expand internationally.

MCACC is the first organization of its kind founded and run in the United States of America – committed to the preservation, cultivation, and advancement of the rich Mongolian culture and heritage. MCHCC operates on the commitment to helping enrich the lives of the greater Mongolian and surrounding world communities through inspiring and facilitating cross-cultural dialogues and educational exchange.
