The ICASA is an Adelaide based non-profit organization established on the 3rd of April 2019 and Incorporated from the 10th of May 2019. Our dedication is to demonstrate and promote the diversity of Ivorian/African communities, artists and heritage in South Australia. We are committed to educating all cultures on how Ivorian/African music, dance and art are relevant in modern Australian society
The South Australian Ivorian Community is about to launch our Dynamic New Association, showcasing the Arts and Culture of the Ivory Coast. We have three incredible Performers at our launch. Kouassi, Jean Marc Agbogba and Adama Fakoli Doumbouya.
Highly developed skills and expanded social network within the Australian-African Multicultural community Rebuilt community cultural pride and identity Inspiring community social engagement and communication Awareness of the culture / New knowledge for the community Contributed to the enhancement of community solidity and the structure of social capital within a community Enhanced physical and mental health and well being Promoting inclusiveness and positive multicultural harmony Increased Arts participation within the community
We are about connecting all members of our association to get to know each other and share a common interest in our community and culture. To create a profile describing their background. Each member will be able to log in and update their information at any time. Learning about the Ivorian dance, arts and culture. Dance is a fundamental part of the cultural fiber and an important activity that serves several purposes in the community. People dance in festivals, religious ceremonies, etc.
Speaking to their secretary from her base in Adelaide, Rebecca Jane Cook outlined some essential points that one must go through to become a member and must be willing to do things to help the society.
Watch out for more from the Ivorian Community in Southern Australia.
