The Intercultural Alliance of Artists & Scholars, Inc. (IAAS) was founded in 2000 to promote multicultural literature and literacy. The IAAS encourages people of all cultural and socio-economic backgrounds to adopt reading, writing and the arts - in all of its forms - as part of their lifelong process. The IAAS is working towards tearing down walls and building alliances. Come join us! Through literature, we can challenge many of our society's deep-seated assumptions and boundaries; we can build upon the power of artistic creation and expression to spark new ideas and elicit new reactions, from people who participate in the creative process, as well as those who witness its results. Donate your time, your money and energy. Create, teach and learn, and become a part of our multicultural literary revolution today!
