2023 Continued Reflections

Online Art Auction

Our first Annual Online Art Auction launched in Spring 2023, and revived in Fall 2023. Our purpose was twofold: to create an engaging fundraising event, while exposing Subud USA to the amazing pantheon of cultural artists thriving within our borders. A total of 40 artists contributed over 100 creations to the Spring and Fall Auctions!

Newsletter Blog

The newsletter blog highlighted 29 colorful articles featuring Subud USA cultural artists in action, including book reviews, memoirs, memorials, plus prayers, and Poems for Peace.

Permanent Online Gallery

The Online Art Auction has morphed into a permanent Gallery embedded into the SICA website so that public awareness of Subud Culture can continue to flourish.

Congress Attendance

SICA-USA Board Members attended National and Regional Congresses.
