We created an intercultural center in order to counteract discrimination, segregation and show the best effect of pluralism in the society by enhancing the intercultural dialogue to melt the borders between participants from different ages, situations and backgrounds through culture, art, language cafe and society awareness sessions, events, etc.
Through those activities, the participants will be able to train their Swedish language, get information about the society, networking, be active socially, build their capacity and in some cases it can lead them to the labor market!
The project is funded by Open Society Foundation
Why it is needed?
In the Swedish society today there are a large number of asylum seekers and newcomers (those who have a permission to stay and placed in the municipalities) plus those who are already established Swedes, which means that Swedish society is now wider with different nationalities, cultures, mentalities and thoughts.
