We are part of the City of Helsinki Cultural Office
The City of Helsinki Cultural Office promotes art, culture and creativity and making the Helsinki Region a culturally rich area. Services include cultural events, shows, exhibitions, courses and art classes. The City of Helsinki Cultural Office wants to ensure that culture and art in Helsinki are diverse and accessible to everyone.
The City of Helsinki Cultural Office runs seven cultural centres: the Savoy Theatre, Annantalo Arts Centre and the international cultural centre Caisa in the centre of the city, and Kanneltalo, Malmitalo, Stoa and Vuotalo in the suburbs. Each centre provides a different programme throughout the year. The Espa Stage in the Esplanadi Park hosts cultural events in the summer. The cultural centres work in close cooperation with Helsinki’s art and culture scene.
The City of Helsinki Cultural Office also grants financial assistance to art and culture organisations, collectives and artists, and provides artists with sophisticated performance venues around the city. Professional artists can apply for studio space on Harakka Island, and Villa Eläintarha provides accommodation for visiting foreign artists.
