About Us


With the aim of changing lives and changing societies, the Institute of Cultural Affairs (ICA) Nepal was established in early 1998 in Kathmandu, Nepal. Since its establishment and following its philosophy: ‘every individual has a capacity to bring change in his/her situation’, ICA Nepal has continuously worked for human capacity development, and hence, has emerged as one of the leading organizations in training and facilitation in Nepal. ICA Nepal believes that no sustainable development or change is achieved without considering existing cultural dynamics and pluralities. Thus, it is dedicated to creating an environment, in which the opportunity of participation, and the building in of sustainable change and development is foremost.

Our Mission

ICA’s mission is to promote social innovation through participation and community building.

Our Values

Every individual has the capacity to bring change in his/her situation. Therefore, in a group of people every individual should be given the chance to participate, in order to build a sustainable pattern of change or development. It is ICA’s belief that a group’s cultural dynamics must be considered in order to build any sustainable pattern of change or development.

Our Events

In 2012 the ICA conference entitled “Unleashing and Promoting Human Capacity for Sustainable Development” took place in Kathmandu, Nepal.
