IOM MIGRATION INFORMATION CENTRE

Free Advice and Services for Foreigners

We have had a long-term cooperation with the representatives of migrant associations and communities in Slovakia – cultural mediators who support social life of the community, help their fellow countrymen and also organize multicultural events, which subsequently help to introduce the culture of the country of their origin to the public and by doing so, are creating space for mutual understanding between foreign nationals and the majority society.

Are you interested in life of people from different countries and cultures living in Slovakia? 

  • We are looking for new communities and individuals interested in cooperation
  • Non-EU nationals having direct contact with migrants from countries outside the EU who know their culture and communities of migrants in Slovakia
  • Interested in supporting the cultural life of their communities and activities in Slovakia

We offer:

  • Opportunities to gain skills, financial support and assistance with organization of events in your community, new contacts with other migrant communities, information sharing, intensive cooperation, the opportunity to develop
  • To become a member of the team of cultural mediators who are members of migrant communities, working with Migration Information Centre (MIC), and create a bridge of understanding between the majority and community,
  • To help migrants to take their first steps in the integration into Slovak society, to organize multicultural events, to collaborate on education of employees in state and non-governmental organizations, and to share relevant information with the communities of migrants.

The Centre cooperates with cultural mediators – representatives of foreigner associations and communities in Slovakia. With the support of the Centre, they organize events through which they introduce the culture of the country of their origin to the public, support social life of the community, help their fellow countrymen and create space for mutual understanding of communities and the majority society. Since 2006, cultural mediators, with the support of MIC, have organized 164 multicultural and community information meetings for 13,400 people.
