Are you interested in culture?
Culture belongs to everyone. However, not everyone can afford to buy tickets to, for example, the museum, theatre or concerts. Kaikukortti has been developed as a solution to this problem.
What is Kaikukortti?
You can use the Kaikukortti card to get free tickets to, for example, the theatre, festivals or concerts. Kaikukortti is personal and free of charge. Kaikukortti is valid for a year at a time.
Who is eligible for Kaikukortti?
You are eligible for Kaikukortti, if:
• you are a client of an Espoo social or healthcare actor that is a member of the Kaikukortti network
• you cannot afford entrance tickets due to financial constraints
• you are 16 years or older.
Where to get Kaikukortti?
• Kaikukortti is distributed by all the Espoo social and healthcare actors listed in this brochure. Ask the staff for a Kaikukortti card.
• You do not have to prove your income to get a Kaikukortti.
How to use Kaikukortti to get an entrance ticket or course place?
With Kaikukortti, you can get a ticket through the cultural venue’s own ticket sales channel. Be prepared to show your Kaikukortti and its number when getting the ticket. You cannot use Kaikukortti to get tickets from an online shop. If you get a ticket through Lippupiste or another commercial ticket broker, you have to pay a service charge even though the ticket itself is free of charge. It is possible to get tickets directly from most cultural actors without having to pay a service charge.
If you want to take an Arbis course, enrol for the course as usual in advance and then telephone the Arbis office to give your Kaikukortti number. There may be a limited number of Kaikukortti tickets and course places available.
Bring your Kaikukortti
Bring your Kaikukortti with you when attending the cultural event or course. The staff may request to see your Kaikukortti.
Tickets for your children
If your family includes children under the age of 16, you can also use your Kaikukortti to get tickets for them when you attend the event together. However, children cannot attend Arbis courses with you using Kaikukortti. Kaikukortti for communities The social and healthcare actors that distribute Kaikukortti also have
Kaikukortti for communities.
An employee can use Kaikukortti for communities to get a free entrance ticket for him/herself when he/she organises a small group visit for one or more clients with Kaikukortti. Kaikukortti for communities cannot be used for Arbis’s courses. If you are interested in going to an event with a small group or an employee, you should ask if an employee of a community distributing Kaikukortti would like to attend the cultural event with you.
