Support Association

The Support Association of && Espoo Theatre was established in January 1984. Initially, the association focused its efforts on launching theatre activities in Espoo. For this purpose, a foundation was established with the participation of both the City of Espoo and the theatre's support association. The theatre activities began in May 1989, coinciding with the opening of the Espoo Cultural Centre in Tapiola.

The objectives of the Support Association are to:

Promote, develop, and support the art of theatre in Espoo
Raise awareness about the activities of && and
Enhance its operational conditions in every possible way

The members of the Support Association are active individuals who attend their theatre productions, engage in theatre-related discussions in Espoo, embark on exploratory trips to other Finnish theatres, and deepen their understanding of both art and music. The annual membership fee for an individual member is 25 euros. As a member, you can enjoy benefits such as discounts on theatre tickets and the opportunity to participate in excursions and events. Join as a member on the association's website and become part of the activities!
