Australian Intercultural Society (AIS) is a not for profit organisation that has been operating in Melbourne since 2000 with the aims of promoting multiculturalism and fostering intercultural and interfaith dialogue. We believe in reaching out to all members of society by providing a platform for cultural and information exchange.
Since its establishment, AIS has organised international study tours, academic conferences, cultural exhibitions, Ramadan multi-faith iftar dinners and government sponsored projects, among other activities.
