 Arts & Culture, History & Community...in Dover, Delaware

cache/wst.opf.4716160.xml


Welcome to Dover's
Inner City Cultural League, Inc.



Founded in 1971 by Dover City 
Councilman Reuben Salters, the Inner City Cultural League fulfills a need in the Central Delaware Community which was previously unmet.

 

 
The League introduced programs which enhance understanding of the arts and culture among Dover's inner city citizens - especially the youth.


  INNER CITY CULTURAL LEAGUE, INC 

 

Our purpose is to create an awareness of how arts and culture benefit the development of youth and their families in our community.

ICCL, Inc. is a highly valuable organization to the community.  It offers increased accessibility and exposure to the fine arts, as well as educational enrichment. In addition to placing great emphasis on advancement in education through participation in the arts, the Inner City Cultural League, Inc. also seeks to build a network of interconnected community agencies.  Our goal is to enable local youth and their families to realize a higher level of learning and personal achievement.

For dates, times and locations of our cultural workshops, presentations, and  Sankofa African Dance Company's scheduled performances, 
please visit our calendar 
(center/bottom).

You'll find fascinating activities  to participate in, people  to meet, and  places to visit.  You'll also find opportunities to make your own contribution to the cultural complexity of our city.
