The National Museum of Finland offers free events for the Culture kids twice a year. The sponsored Culture kids of the National Museum are children from Helsinki born in 2023.
As part of the Culture kids project, The National Museum of Finland is a cultural sponsor for children born in 2023 and living in Helsinki. The museum offers free cultural events for the Culture Kids of 2023 twice a year. Register your child here: kummilapset.hel.fi/en/home
Since 2020, the City of Helsinki's Culture kids project has offered each child in Helsinki their own cultural sponsor. The culture sponsor offers the child two free events every year. The events are planned to suit the child's level of development, and they support the well-being of the whole family. Events are held for children for seven years, from the year of birth to the school start year.
If the child lives in Helsinki and was born in 2020 or later, you can register them to Culture kids program at kummilapset.hel.fi/en/home. The culture sponsor is determined by the year of birth of the child. Those born in different years have their own cultural actors as sponsors.
The Culture kids service is managed by the City of Helsinki's Culture and Leisure Division and is supported by the Jane and Aatos Erkko Foundation.
Baby’s Heritage Box -workshops in the Cultural Centers in spring 2024
What traditions do you have in your family or in your family and what would you like to pass on to your child? In the Baby's Heritage Box workshop, you will discuss the culture you have inherited and create your baby's own heritage box.
In this workshop you can think about what cultural things you would like your baby to learn and remember in the future. What things are important and meaningful to you? After a joint discussion, everyone will design their own heritage box with their baby, which will be decorated with colourful stickers. In this box, you can start to collect the things you want to save from your family and community traditions for your baby's future.
The workshop is best suited for babies aged 0-8 months with an adult.
