The City of Helsinki Cultural Office has asked Katolinen.net to spread information about their Kulttuurikaverit or culture companion programme. The Cultural Office hopes to reach immigrants in particular, but they assure us that all comers are welcome, so do use this service! Information is available in Finnish on the Cultural Office's own Kulttuurikaverit page, but we give the gist of the matter below, so keep reading.
A culture companion will provide the company you need, book the tickets and - if need be - even give you a hand to find your way to the event. A culture mate also gives you a chance to improve your Finnish language skills at the same time!
