Culture Citizen

The Culture Citizen programme 2020 has ended. We will later announce the possible continuation of the program on this website.

The Culture Citizen programme period for Espoo residents who acquired Finnish citizenship in 2018–2019 was from 1 September to 31 December 2020.

Due to the situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic, changes to the programme were possible even at short notice. The Culture Citizen programme was cancelled between November 30 and December 31, 2020. 

The benefits of the program were published on this website on September 1, 2020. There was a limited number of tickets available (a quota for new citizens). 

See past benefits of the program under the subheadings of this website. On your computer, the subheadings can be found in the left column of the page. On the mobile screen, press the arrow next to the header: Section All Benefits lists the benefits on a monthly basis in chronological order.

The persons entitled to the benefit, Culture Citizens, received a benefit card and code by post to their home in early September, 2020. The card and code are personal.

The closed Facebook group for Culture Citizens is not active anymore. Please check the KulttuuriEspoo page in Facebook for updates on art and cultural events.
