India Social & Cultural Centre (ISC), Abu Dhabi, is the premier socio-cultural organisation and the apex body of the registered Indian associations in the capital city of Abu Dhabi. The genesis of ISC is traced to the Unity Club that took shape in 1967 from the shared vision of a band of pioneering Indians to create a centre for social and cultural activities, and a link to the cultural roots and memories of their homeland. With the benevolence and magnanimity of His Highness Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the father of the U.A.E., The Unity Club has been transformed into India Social and Cultural Centre, a new identity in serving the Indian community. Located in Abu Dhabi, the emerging land of opportunities, ISC has grown strength to strength and has become a home away from home for the Indian Diaspora, serving as a venue for members and their families for a wide range of social, cultural, literary, educational and recreational activities.
ISC provides support and encouragement to socio-cultural activities of Indians in Abu Dhabi. The variety of regular programmes in ISC reflects the spirit of unity in diversity of the Indian community. With a collaborative network of responsible initiatives by patrons, governors and members, ISC strives to achieve its goal in nurturing the rich cultural and social traditions amongst the people living here.
