Creative exchanges are at the heart of ICE. We believe that by exchanging ideas, visions and opinions between artists from a multitude of backgrounds and disciplines, we can actively support our members tap into alternative modes of communication that tell us something new about the world we live in today.

Through its programming, seminars, and workshops, ICE provides a space for its members to explore the vast possibilities of creative expression. Our team of distinguished arts professionals brings members on a path of exploration of different art forms, cultural identities, and modes of thinking.
