ABOUT (local community events)
India Cultural Association (ICA) of Central Iowa, located in Ames, was formed in 1992 as a non-profit organization. ICA aims to assist and promote educational, youth, literary, charitable, and cultural activities with the intent to maintain, preserve, and foster the cultural and secular heritage of India and also to enhance friendship and understanding with people from various cultural backgrounds. Each year ICA sponsors several cultural events to promote a better understanding of Indian art, music, and culture among the people of Ames and Central Iowa. The organization is focused on extending its offerings of cultural and community events to communities outside of the ICA membership base as well.
