The music school is host to music cafeés, spontaneous performances and street music. The cultural academy owns various study circles and has an international cooperation with both Norway and Scottland. It also works with Norrbotten regionally. Storuman also has an active music- and theater association, as part of its national theater initiative. For the musically inclined, they offer an education in music production at Storumans Folhögskola. At Storummans kommunbibliotek (Storuman public library) you can find galleries andvarious seminars. Some nights movies are shown at Folkets Hus (The Community House).


Vilhelmina culture and leisure can be found on the municipality’s public facebook page. Most cultural arrangements within the municipality are in addition announced via, a collective forum for cultural engagements.
