The International Council for Cultural Centers is the global network of national networks/associations of community cultural centers (3c-s), currently connecting more than 50 countries on 6 continents. I3C hopes to link these houses in a family of shared ideals and practices, weaving a larger, living and flexible global net embodying the analogy of the African shekere instrument net and way of producing sound: a net not only virtual but also very real and physically present through the actual house buildings enlivening communities on all continents.
I3C is currently the only international non-governmental organization representing internationally community cultural centers with their rights, responsibilities, and needs for favourable conditions for the activities of voluntary/non-paid artists and community animators around the world.
