who we are
The Subud International Cultural Association (SICA) works at the intersection of creativity and spirituality to advance and celebrate activities that grow out of the development of the human soul. We invite you to explore and find that art or culture of your true self.
SICA is a nonprofit organization established in 1983 and provides programs and services to Subud members and other organizations working for the public benefit in the fields of art, culture, and creativity. National SICA associations exist in Canada, Australia, and the USA, while in other countries SICA is part of the national Subud organization.
- SICA provides information, training, networking, and support services as well as opportunities to engage with regional, national, and international cultural initiatives and events.
- SICA sponsors conferences, festivals, symposia, publications, exhibitions, performances, workshops, research, and other activities — for both Subud members and the general public.
- SICA affirms that culture, as the outer expression of our inner selves, embraces all understandings and human endeavor. Its expression is powerful and vigorous, enabling us to feel and value our real selves and know our real direction in life.
