Multicultural Center Gloria is a place for different people and cultures to meet.
Together with the visitors, Gloria organises multicultural activities for all the citizens of Jyväskylä.

Gloria stands for equality, working against racism and prejudice by organizing events and discussions about multiculturalism aiming to promote inclusion and integration.

Many different groups gather in Gloria and multicultural and ethnic groups can use the space for free.
It is possible to organise courses, events and exhibitions in the premises.
Volunteers can participate in activities or give ideas for new ones.

Contact us – come and see, come and experience!

NOTE: Due to Covid-19 many of our regular activities are postponed. Please check the weekly schedule for updated information.
