We participate in many projects that usually involve children and young people in the whole city, and we want to influence the accessibility and development of the art and cultural education of the City of Helsinki. Together with our stakeholders and networks, we participate in the current phenomena of children’s culture through our projects.
Our projects: kultus.fi, Art-filled Journeys into the Future (workshops and learning material for schools and day nurseries), Kent (Cultural special needs youth work), Culture Kids and the national Art Testers. We are a member in the Cultural education forum (City of Helsinki) and in the Association of Finnish Children’s Cultural Centers.
In Helsinki, the whole city is a learning environment. Cultural education is the best way to promote this.
The Association promotes the cultural centres for children and adolescents and competence of the field of children’s culture nationwide.
The goal of the national Art Testers activity is to give all Finnish eighth-graders an opportunity to experience and test art, including the kinds of art that many would not be able to access otherwise.
The goal of the project Art-filled Journeys into the Future (2020-21) was to strengthen the future skills of children and young people through art education methods
Kultus is an online service maintained and developed by Annantalo Arts Centre. It provides information on cultural activities for children and young people in the metropolitan region.
Every child born in 2020 or after and living in Helsinki is sponsored by a cultural operator. The operator will offer the child and their family personal experiences with the arts and culture.
The aim of the project Cultural special needs youth work (KENT, in 2017-2021) was to establish art and cultural activities as a part of special needs youth work.
Annantalo, located in the centre of Helsinki, is dedicated to art education and children’s culture – Performances, exhibitions and events for children, young people and families together with a versatile course selection.
