Kulttuuritalo Päiväkoti


Kulttuuritalo Päiväkoti is a homely and unique combination of open work and residency spaces. The fabulous island of Hailuoto and the old wooden building welcome artists and creative professionals into our communal working spaces and atmosphere.

For whom

Artists and creative workers.


Kulttuuritalo Päiväkoti is in the village centre of Hailuoto, in the middle of the island. The historically significant building was constructed in the 1930’s and previously it has functioned as an infirmary and meeting point for female volunters during the war and as a meeting place and a day nursery, hence the name “Päiväkoti”.


1 week – 1 month (Residency visits begin and end on Fridays).


The residence rooms Nokturni and Novelli are upstairs. Bathrooms and toilets in the hallway next to the rooms. A well-furnished kitchen, open workspaces, the sauna in a separate building and our Pelago-bikes are at the disposal for the residency guests.

Artistic fields and workspaces

The residency is open for all artists and creative workers (NB, our premises have no professional workspaces for visual artists). The open workspaces are located downstairs. Top-notch wireless network. The world’s smallest studio for singer-songwriters and individual sound artists upstairs, free use of the studio is included in the residency fee. The meeting room downstairs is perfect for small get-togethers.

*note! Lillan operates as a crisis residence from 1 August 2022 and cannot be booked for now.


Exhibitions, workshops, artist talks and communal cooperative projects can be arranged. However, this is not required.

We expect the residency visitors to cover personal travel and living. The artistic projects are conducted in cooperation with Kulttuuritalo Päiväkoti in order to ensure pleasent residency visits.
