Culture Interest Groups
A fun and interactive group that shares in learning about and celebrating each other’s cultures through interesting conversation and entertaining activities. Our group meets monthly in members’ homes and welcomes members from all around the world to come together, learn about each other, and develop friendships!
Members meet six to eight times a year at various central Indiana locations for special tours, museums, and other experiences. Events can last one to two hours or as long as half a day.
Our members learn about different religious and mystical traditions through speakers and sometimes book discussions and visits to various religious sites. We ask questions, discuss similarities and differences, and see how they may compare to our own beliefs and ideas. In this time of Covid-19, we are also focusing on topics that will help us to deal more positively with the difficulties many are experiencing. Members are always welcome to suggest speakers or topics of interest, including book titles, places to visit, and/or special events taking place locally.
Members meet at each other’s homes or by Zoom to share good books and learn about other cultures while making new friends. Various literary genres and themes are explored, and books by international authors are often read.
Members meet every other month to learn about exciting “destinations of interest” around the world, including the U.S. The group discussion is usually led by one or more members who has either lived or visited the featured location. Participants are treated to a presentation involving travel experiences and pertinent information regarding the destination. Other members join in and share their firsthand knowledge and travel tips as well.
