Cooperation with schools

Cooperation with schools is the core activity in children’s cultural centres. The centres highlight the accessibility of their art and culture offering, best implemented in cooperation with schools. Professionals in different fields of art work with children and youth in art workshops where the contents can be planned to support the learning targets, when required. Multi-disciplinary workshops, excursions to art institutions, concerts, theatre, dance and circus performances, installation art projects and visits by artists are part of the daily life at schools and support instruction across the subject boundaries.

Further information about cultural education at schools is available at Cultural education at schools.

“The artist in school” was a multi-year project in several municipalities where young artists were employed by schools to create art and public works in various workshops with children and young people. Photo by Miikka Kiiminki
