International Focus Inc., is a non-profit, 501 (c)(3) organization with the mission to advance North Carolina’s role in the world. We believe that communication and community bind people together regardless of heritage and history and we are honored to be the area's pivotal connector for cross-cultural understanding, education, and diplomacy.
We celebrate the great diversity of the Triangle, where we live side by side with neighbors from all over the world. Our vision is to connect and collaborate to create a rich community that benefits from the wealth of viewpoints, creativity, wisdom, and friendship that abound in the greater Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill areas.
International Focus supports multiculturalism and international exchange through the International Visitors' Leadership Programs, the Community Connections Programs, and the Open World Programs. International Focus also promotes diversity via its newsletters, collaborations, workshops, resources, and its flagship event, the International Festival of Raleigh, considered to be a key component of the Triangle’s cultural and artistic offerings. The event showcases music, dance, cuisine, art, and cultural education from 55 diverse cultures, and welcomes 30,000 visitors annually.
We continue to welcome new ethnic communities to our network as the Triangle’s population expands; and we are honored to be the area’s pivotal connector for cross-cultural understanding and respect.
