Welcome to ICS - TAS

A need for an Indian Cultural Organisation was felt by some interested persons of Indian origin in Hobart. The proposal of forming a cultural society was initially discussed amongst friends and interested persons, and eventually it was decided to call a general meeting to consider the formation of such a society. This was advertised in the daily press, and an inaugural meeting was held on Sunday, 30th July, 1972 at the Union Building, University of Tasmania Hobart. The members of this newly formed Indian Cultural Society were a small number of Indo-Australian Cultural Societies, comprising of the Indian families resident here, plus a number of Australian friends, who were enthusiastic about the Indian Culture scene.
