Mission statement

The City of Helsinki Cultural Office promotes art, culture and creativity, and strives to develop the Helsinki region into a culturally rich and diverse area. In Helsinki, culture is everyone's privilege.

The Cultural Office operates in the following ways:
• Supporting culture: issues grants to art facilities, institutions, organisations and artists, and provides exhibition and work space for artists.
• Offering cultural activities: produces cultural activities itself, and in cooperation with other operators.
• Promoting culture: takes initiative in cultural matters and acts in a goal-oriented fashion with regard to cultural politics on a local, national and international level.


Helsinki is a multi-faceted and unique centre for art, creativity and culture. It is an internationally prominent cultural pioneer in the Baltic region.
