Annantalo Arts Centre

Organization, Finland, Helsinki

Annantalo Arts Centre, part of the City of Helsinki Cultural Office, was founded in 1987 in Helsinki.


The Annantalo Arts Centre presents a broad range of art forms. Its mission is to create a favourable atmosphere and optimum conditions for children and adolescents in Helsinki to practice, experience and see arts and culture.
Annantalo Arts Centre was founded in 1987. It is located in central Helsinki in an old school building.
The City of Helsinki Cultural Office wanted to create an arts centre for children, where they could work in workshops under the supervision of artists. In addition to the arts education given to school and kindergarten children, there are almost 80 leisure arts education groups with a total of around 800 students.
In the performing arts there are 20 groups making theatre, dance, music or poetry. For early childhood there are 5 groups of music and dance in Annantalo’s premises and several courses that take place in kindergartens.
Annantalo Arts Centre also arranges different events, performances and workshops for the whole family.
Annantalo co-operates with performing arts festivals for children such as the Bravo!, Hurraa!, Ruutia! and The Helsinki Festival. The Arts centre produces its own performances for the very small ones and organises the annual theatre festival of Annantalo performing art groups.
