The Sustainable Intercultural Connections is a project launched by RISCA in 2010 in an effort to foster a community of support and engagement between leaders of community groups and established arts organizations and non-profits. The project hopes to maintain the existence of ongoing events that promote intercultural understanding and unity among diverse communities. It also aspires to connect culturally specific communities to national conferences, regional arts workshops, and local gatherings.
Since 2013 over $55,000 has been raised for 300 scholarships to artists, cultural workers, performers and youth of color to the following conferences and regionals and summits:
2014 The National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures (NALAC) Regional Arts Training Workshops
