Adventures in International Dining                                        

A program for "International Adventures"

Adventures in International Dining is a program where members and guests visit an ethnic restaurant for a culinary experience. On occasion, the proprietor discusses the menu and cultural heritage of the food. It is a way to support Indianapolis' diverse international community as well as to learn about various traditions in an authentic environment.

This program offers more social occasions while other ICWA programs feature educational sessions, such as the Distinguished Speakers and the Great Decisions.

During this summer, please join us for the next two International Adventures. The Indiana Council on World Affairs will be participating in the Asian Fest in June and dining at the Chin Brothers Burmese restaurant in July:
