About VAEA

VAEA was founded on June 13th 1990 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Jose Antonio Paez i Acarigua, Venezuela. Since its beginnings, VAEA has sponsored several cultural events in Venezuela and the United States. Our two countries have had a longstanding tradition of friendship for more than 200 years and VAEA’s commitment is to promote programs that will continue this tradition for future generations.

VAEA is a New York Based Public Charity under section 501 (c) 3.

VAEA will conduct its mission from the new venue VAEA New Rochelle Art Center, focusing in education through the arts for the new generation of Westchester County, New York, USA.

VAEA FILMS

Today a new division was founded to give additional financial support to emerging filmmakers in order to bring their dreams to life. Under the leadership of Belen Orsini, Executive Director of VAEA Films and a group of prestigious and visionary filmmakers they have formed a team that will lead this division to great success.

“You know the greatest films of all time were never made.”

– Taylor Swift
