Silkinportti Activity Center

The door of Silkinportti.

Silkinportti—situated in Tikkurila—is the City of Vantaa's activity center for immigrants that arranges, together with the third sector and volunteers, myriad activities. The activities are free of charge.

At Silkinportti Activity Center, you can

  • attend the handicrafts and discussion club where you can sew and knit, do your homework and talk with others in Finnish
  • study Finnish
  • meet other immigrants
  • make Finnish pastries
  • gain information on matters you are interested in.

In addition, we will provide guidance and counseling on, among other things, various courses and services in Finnish, English, Russian, Amharic, and Tigrinya. Services in other languages are separately agreed.

Silkinportti office is located in Tikkurila's old silk factory along the Kerava river. Authorities, organizations/associations and groups in Vantaa can book free-of-charge office premises for their meetings and, for instance, integration-promotion activities. For more information, please contact Silkinportti.
