The Sultan Qaboos Cultural Center (SQCC) regularly cosponsors events with other institutions around Washington, DC and the US, and participates in festivals and workshops with other organizations, in order to fulfill its mission of educating Americans about Omani culture and supporting cross cultural exchange between the US and Oman. These events range from our SQCC annual conference, held in partnership with a different university each year, to multicultural festivals hosted by organizations like the National Geographic Museum (Washington, DC), the Arab and Chaldean Festival (Detroit, Michigan), and the Avalon Foundation’s annual multicultural festival (Easton, MD). SQCC also annually holds a booth at the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) annual conference, where SQCC promotes its Indian Ocean in World History website, a free classroom resource, to K-12 educators.

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event!
