The Austin Intercultural Network provides opportunities for groups and individuals to explore other cultures and to expand their network. We exist to celebrate the rich diversity of Austin by providing a welcoming forum in which community groups can showcase their diverse cultural events, language, arts, literature, achievements and knowledge as a means to promote cultural awareness, community partnerships, cultural diversity and understanding. Regularly scheduled events will foster relationships and provide opportunities for cross-cultural connections. The culmination of this effort will be the creation of the Annual Austin Intercultural Festival in this extraordinarily beautiful city.
