Kansanmusiikin ja -tanssin opiskelijat esiintymässä Kaustisella.


We participate in planning and practice of folk music education in all levels from childhood education to elementary school and high school, college, academic education as well as adult education and recreational activity. We organise educational events both together with different schools and on our own, publish educational material and participate in joint educational projects.

Every other year we arrange a learning period in Kaustinen for the students of all Finnish learning institutions focusing on folk music and dance.

We participate in organizing and developing the folk music based Näppäri courses for children and youth with Kaustisen Näppärit ry and other operators. We're in charge of coordinating the Näppäri short courses. We also develop tradition based cultural activities for children and youth locally with e.g. our Näppäri school and Children's Cultural Centre Lykky projects.
