International Marketplace Presents the Global Village Welcome Center


The time has come for Indianapolis to have a home where everyone is welcome to explore, connect and celebrate their cultures and traditions. Since 2005, the International Marketplace Coalition has worked to become a catalyst for economic growth and vitality in our community. Our most recent project is transforming a recently purchased 56,000 square foot building (located at 4233 Lafayette Road) into the Global Village Welcome Center to create the ultimate cultural destination welcome to everyone. Imagine a place featuring cultural exhibits, classrooms, a demonstration kitchen, dance studios, event hall, functional space and other dedicated areas.

But first, funding is needed to support the $12 million capital campaign to make the Global Village Welcome Center a reality. Funds will be used to help renovate the space, provide exhibit design, space build out and fulfill other dedicated projects to help “Shrink the Globe and Create a Village.” Since donations are key to our growth and success, please consider donating $10, $25, $50 – whatever amount you are able to give.

Thank you in advance for your support.
