Building Cultural Bridges

Find organizations in the Houston area that support cultural awareness. 

  • International Connections of Houston (ICH). An organization that reaches out to those living in the USA for the first time or repatriating to the USA. ICH offers members a calendar of activities, social events, monthly meetings and a monthly newsletter.  Join us so you can make friends and experience educational and cultural opportunities in Houston. Our membership is always open.  ICH meetings are held the third Thursday of every month and all members and prospective members are invited to attend.
  • Houston culture and community resource directory |
  • Houston Language Partners. A not-for-profit group that exists to promote language and cultural exchange between international and local individuals in Houston. ("I'll teach you my language, you teach me yours.")  In addition to finding practice partners and individual teachers to help you learn a second language, practicing language exchange is also a good way to help you develop skills for teaching your own language, and a great way to make new local and international friends. Membership is free.
  • WindSync. Hailed by the Houston Chronicle as “revolutionary chamber musicians,” WindSync is internationally recognized for dramatic and engaging interpretations of classical music. The young, adventurous group plays exclusively from memory, including elements of staging and choreography, and focuses on building a connection with audiences through dynamic concert programming and charismatic stage presence.
