Mission Statement

IUCA takes distinct pride in promoting cultural awareness through dance, music, drama, and art in the community. Its overarching goal is to foster an innovative member-centered, cultural association that is both resource effective and focused on raising awareness of Indian cultural heritage. IUCA also offers several other volunteering opportunities with other non-profit organizations to give back to the community.

In May 2006, Indo-US Cultural Association initiated an effort to help fulfill Mayor Joines’ vision in promoting Winston-Salem as a cosmopolitan city — a great place to live — by hosting the very first “Utsava” (meaning festival in Sanskrit) with a huge success. The organization and its members continues to work diligently year after year towards the growth and success of that goal – to help make Winston-Salem a great place to live with a diverse, open minded, and welcoming culture.
