In the Jakobstad region there exists a natural approach to creative expression, amongst both the older and younger generations. We like to sing together, compose poetry or blogs, and develop our sense of beauty. Amateur theatre associations thrive in all parts of the region. The visual arts and music have traditionally been strong in the area.

Adult education centres channel a good portion of the creativity and curiosity in the region. Sports associations are also numerous here and there are sports facilities available throughout the whole area.
