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 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.
