What is Kulturkompis (Culture friend)?
Kulturkompis gives asylum seekers, newly arrived
people* and established Swedes** the opportunity
to experience cultural activities together – concerts,
movies, and museums for example – for free.
How does Kulturkompis work?
• The participants in a Kulturkompis group are
given free entry to 3 cultural activities that
are hosted by arts, culture and entertainment
actors in Kalmar.
• The group decides together on which cultural
events to attend to (chosen from the events offered within the Kulturkompis) and when to do it.
• After the event, the group will then discuss 3
brief questions about the experience, preferably over a cup of coffee.
• To be part of Kulturkompis the group should
consist of 4 participants (where at least 50
percent of the group consists of asylum seekers
or newly arrived people).
• The tickets are either booked from the arts,
culture and entertainment actors’/venues’
websites or, when possible, by using the Kulturkompis card at the door.

activities work on www.facebook.com/kulturkompis (Kalmar), www.kulturkompis.nu or at the relevant actor’s/venue’s website.
