The association for the promotion of culture, crafts and arts
Organization and activities
The association for the promotion of culture, crafts and arts Tako is an organization located in Fiskars, which aims to promote the position- and appreciation of arts and crafts as well as the know-how in these fields.
Remarkable for the Tako association is that the organization owns the Fiskars elementary school´s buildings and rents them to the city of Raseborg. The city of Raseborg organizes the elementary school education as well as preschool and after-school activities.
In 2012 the TAKO association bought the old school building next to Fiskars school and in 2015 the association also reclaimed the newer school premises to its ownership. The premises of the old school building, the Tako house has been completely renovated and transformed into versatile teaching- and meeting facilities. The renovation of the newer school building will continue until 2019. The Tako associations main strategic goal and priority is responsible ownership, maintenance and management of the Fiskars School presmises.
