Culture Kids

A cultural actor as a sponsor

Culture Kids is a programme that pairs children living in Helsinki with a sponsor from the world of arts and culture. All of the city’s little ones born in or after 2020 are invited to join.

The Culture Kids sponsor invites the children and a member of their family to at least two events every year. The events support children’s development and promote the wellbeing of the entire family. The cultural sponsor is determined by the year in which your child was born. More than 30 organisations from Helsinki’s art and culture community participate in Culture Kids as sponsors. The sponsorship continues until the child starts primary school.

Programme activities are developed in cooperation with the families and experts from maternity and child health clinics and early childhood education.

Sign up children living in Helsinki who were born in or after 2020 for the Culture Kids programme at All events are free-of-charge for the children participating in the programme.

The Culture Kids programme is arranged by the City of Helsinki Culture and Leisure Division.
