Subud International Cultural Association
As a wing organization of Subud, Subud International Cultural Association (SICA) works to support Subud members to express their talents from within arisen through the experience of the Subud latihan. SICA aims to facilitate the emergence of truly human culture across all forms of human endeavour.
SICA provides programs and services to individuals and organizations who are working to nurture human values through art, culture, and creativity, for a more human future. SICA provides information, training, networking and support services as well as opportunities to engage and collaborate with cultural initiatives and events around the world.
SICA Australia currently provides support in the form of small grants to individuals or groups working on projects within Australia in the field of the arts.
Collaboration with SICA International
SICA Australia is assisting the development of an online village where members can share their talents and skills, showcase their work and connect with each-other globally. We see the current world pandemic as an opportunity for SICA to connect us in new ways.
The first initiatives are now emerging:
The Culture Couch with Harris Smart – Harris interviews national and international guests with an audience.
Conversation Circles – Structured group discussions with a set topic and questions. Most recently around people’s experiences and circumstances in isolation during the Coronavirus epidemic.
Music Café – an opportunity for musical artists and poets to perform for an online audience.
