Arco Kerava

The goal of the ArcoKerava development project is to create a safe space that takes special needs into account and offers regular activities for LGBTIQ young people in Kerava. ArcoKerava’s young people gather on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the library’s Satusiipi from 17.00 to 19.30.

ArcoKerava is a safe and inclusive space for young people in Kerava and created to support the wellbeing of LGBTIQ youth. We want to create a cooperative space where everyone can participate in the development of a more inclusive and LGBTIQ-friendly Kerava.

Here you can:

  • have fun with friends over board games and use the library’s tablet computers
  • participate in the monthly reading circle
  • discuss and learn about gender, sexuality and various interesting topics.

We always have one youth worker managing the activities and a large number of volunteers who help organise ArcoKerava’s events.

Youth worker contact details can be found on the Finnish-speaking site.
