Om kulturkompis – Make Friends Through Culture

- In english, below -
Kulturkompis ger nyanlända och etablerade svenskar möjligheten att gå på kulturaktiviteter tillsammans – konsert, bio, museum eller liknande – utan kostnad. Projektet är del av Studieförbundet Bildas arbete med nyanlända och asylsökande.

Så här fungerar det:
Kulturkompisgrupper går gratis på tre kulturaktiviteter som erbjuds av kulturaktörer i Växjö. Ni i gruppen bestämmer vad ni ska gå på (av de aktiviteter som erbjuds inom Kulturkompis) och när det passar er bäst.
Efter kulturaktiviteten ses gruppen och samtalar kring tre korta frågor om vad ni har upplevt, gärna över en kaffe. Detta kallas för ”Eftersnack på svenska”.

En kulturkompisgrupp behöver bestå av två nyanlända/asylsökande och två etablerade svenskar.
Studieförbundet Bilda sätter ihop grupper utifrån anmälningar som kommer in.

What is Kulturkompis (Culture Friend)?

”Kulturkompis – make friends through culture” gives newly arrived people and established Swedes the opportunity to expe­rience cultural activities together – concerts, movies, and museums being some of possible activities. The project is part of the educational association (studieförbund) Bilda’s work with newly arrived and our commitment to provide meaningful activities that help to improve and strengthen the introduction to the Swedish language, the Swedish society and the participa­tion in the social life.

Why should you be a Kulturkompis?

Art and culture are our universal language. By experiencing and using it together, we believe that exciting meetings, discussions and relationships can be achieved.

How does Kulturkompis work?

The participants in a Kulturkompis group are given free entry to three cultural activities that are hosted by arts, culture and entertainment actors in Stockholm. After the event, the group will then discuss three brief questions about the experience over a cup of coffee. To be part of Kulturkompis the group should consist of three to five participants (where at least 50 percent of the group consists of newly arrived people). The group decides both on which cultural events to attend (chosen from the events offe­red within the Kulturkompis package) and when to do it. 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. Read more about how the booking process for Kulturkompis activities work on Facebook or at the relevant actor’s/venue’s website.
