CultureEspoo X Helsinki Pride

CultureEspoo is an official partner of Helsinki Pride in 2022. Helsinki Pride is the most influential human rights and culture event in Finland, bringing people together and making room for all the colours of the rainbow.

We want to make cultural life in Espoo more equal and inclusive

The key aim of our Helsinki Pride partnership is to promote equality and the rights of gender and sexual minorities within cultural services. As part of the Helsinki Pride partnership, Cultural Services staff will be trained on diversity and equality issues. Furthermore, the Cultural Unit will introduce the safer space principles during 2022.
