Building bridges through information, understanding and cooperation

We believe in reaching out to all members of society by providing a platform for cultural and information exchange. We believe it is necessary to work in partnership with different segments of society. We collaborate with people in the areas of government and public service; education; sports; academia and media; as well as cultural and religious organisations, NGOs; faith and ethnic communities.

Our Activites

We have organised international study tours; academic conferences; cultural exhibitions; Ramadan iftar dinners and government sponsored projects; among other activities. Each event provides ample networking opportunities; so the circle of people wanting to build bridges with other communities and collaborate on projects with AIS grows with each program.

The purpose of the International Festival of Language and Culture is to celebrate diversity and promote inclusion, whilst also providing an opportunity for participating students to showcase the kaleidoscope of their language and culture with other students from around the world.
