Welcome to KulturÖsterbotten!

KulturÖsterbotten is a division of the SÖFUK Federation of Swedish Municipalities in Ostrobothnia for Education and Culture (Svenska Österbottens förbund för utbildning och kultur, SÖFUK), a joint municipal organisation with fourteen member municipalities. SÖFUK is responsible also for the vocational education (Yrkesakademin i Österbotten) and for the regional theatre (Wasa Teater) in Swedish-speaking Ostrobothnia.

The aim of KulturÖsterbotten is to strengthen the cultural identity of the Swedish-speaking population of Ostrobothnia, deepen the cultural co-operation in all fields and on all levels and promote creative activities in the region. KulturÖsterbotten works closely together with the Regional Council of Ostrobothnia and the Arts Council of Ostrobothnia.

KulturÖsterbotten is lead by its cultural board.
