Global Association of Culture and Peace Australia

International Culture Exchange Australia
That site, as it appeared in 2002, is archived on the appropriately named Internet Archive here. Pete.

Here's the content: from the second site, the GACP Australia website has been archived below...

In 1978, Mr J. Jung of South Korea began working towards this international association now numbering 35 member nations.

There are six sections in ICEA all introduced to fulfill our mission statement.
   Arts: There is an art and skill to life often expressed in many forms: painting, dance, music, sculpture, film, poetry - we can enjoy them all.
   Culture: With more than 100 cultures earth is a very exciting place to live and getting to know each other makes the world a smaller place.
   Travel: Travel opens our minds and staying with members, here and overseas, lets us see the true culture, lifestyle and nature of a place.
   Sports: Providing a level playing ground to form relationships, cross barriers, maintain health and develop self-confidence.
   Religious Awareness: We canít understand one another until we know how each other thinks and open religious talks will make us more aware.
   Language Exchange: Understanding each otherís language allows you to explain yourself, your culture and enter one anotherís heart.

We play soccer and  volleyball every Sunday at Burwood Park. In day light saving we play from 4pm. Otherwise we play from 3pm.

Just turn up, no need to contact us.                                                                 

If you have a soccer  or volleyball team, ring us to arrange a casual soccer or volleyball competition.

Location: Burwood Park is on the corner of Park Avenue and Burwood Rd. Burwood. Sydney (Opposite Burwood Westfields shopping center).

   Even though people may not be able to speak the same language fluently we can create good friendships by playing sport together.

Hereby I would like to briefly introduce our teacher of this Japanese course.   Aoki, majoring in education at the University of Sydney, has already got some teaching experiences at high school here in Sydney. She has passion for teaching the Japanese language and culture to anyone and everyone who is interested in Japan.

Although we've met members through other events in ICEA, we also can't wait to meet both existing and new members through language learning.  Should you have any enquiries, please feel free to contact either Li  on 9890 XXXX / 0411 700 XXX (after 6pm Monday to Friday) or Adrian on 0418 283 XXX (after 7pm Monday to Friday).  Please note that we won't start the course unless we have 5 students by 29/8.

New Classes

We are currently taking names for those people interested in learning Japanese or Korean.  These classes will be run similar to the Chinese class with the time and location suiting the majority of applicants. Please email us with your name and contact details, preferred language, time and location of the class.

All different types of religion have been around for a long time it influences culture, thoughts, attitudes and actions.

If we neglect learning about one another's religion we are in fact ignoring other's  whole culture, beliefs and  way of life.

If you would like to make a presentation or have a general discussion session about a particular religion please contact us so that we can arrange a time and venue etc.

With members in Adelaide, Melbourne and in 35 countries around the world, ICEA (GACP) members have the freedom and opportunity to stay with or visit them whenever traveling to those places. All you need to do is contact us and we will put you in touch with the members in the state or country you wish to travel to.
