Sultan Qaboos Cultural Center (SQCC)
The Sultan Qaboos Cultural Center (SQCC) is dedicated to educating the peoples of the United States and Oman about the breadth and richness of our two cultures. SQCC promotes mutual respect and understanding between our nations and strives to educate a new generation of culturally sensitive and knowledgeable citizens in each society. Through outreach programs, scholarships, lectures, educational resources, cultural partnerships, and our Cultural Center in Washington, DC, SQCC brings the culture, history, and heritage of our nations to audiences in the US and abroad.
||The Center is named for His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said al Said of Oman, and was established in 2005. H.E. Hunaina S. Al Mughairy, Ambassador of Oman to the United States, serves as Chair of the SQCC Board of Oversight. Ms. Kathleen Ridolfo serves as Executive Director and heads the office in Washington, DC, and Dr. Iman Al Busaidi serves as the Deputy Director in Muscat, Oman. SQCC is funded by the Government of the Sultanate of Oman.
In November 2014 SQCC opened in a new building at 1100 16th Street, NW. Please stop by to see the exhibition hall with displays highlighting Omani history, culture, and heritage.
In observance of Ramadan, SQCC will be open to the public from 10-3.
