Who We Are

International Focus builds global understanding and respect by facilitating face-to-face diplomacy and professional, personal, and artistic exchange.

Our mission is to promote mutual understanding between the people of North Carolina’s Triangle region and the international community through education, cultural exchange, arts, and the celebration of achievements.

International Focus Inc. is a non-profit, 501 (c)(3) organization.

What We Do

International Focus supports the Triangle’s multicultural communities and international exchange through cross-cultural diplomacy and communication. Year-round, we host visiting international delegations to the area and connect them with Triangle businesses, institutions, and people for exchange and dialog. Each spring, we bring our area’s international and native communities together at the International Festival of Raleigh for three days of international dance, food, and cultural exchange.

We also host community and membership events and collaborate on a variety of artistic, diplomatic, professional, and cultural projects. Check out our upcoming events and all the other great international events happening in the Triangle.
