The conference of Tallinn Music Week (TMW), part of the new music and urban culture festival, taking place from 25 th to 30 th March will be held in the new building of the Estonian Academy of Arts. The two-day conference on 29 th and 30 th March will explore the impact of arts on economy. The programme will be compiled in cooperation with Music Estonia.
The new venue of the conference, exploring the multi-layered impact of arts and creativity, is a unique landmark for TMW and Tallinn according to the director of TMW, Helen Sildna: “The Academy of Arts (EKA) has played an invaluable role in Estonia’s culture as it has not just provided generations of artists, designers and architects but also many trailblazers of our music scenes. TMW will focus on the North Tallinn district this year and EKA will become not just the conference centre but a focal point of the festival together with Telliskivi Creative City and Noblessner. We are excited to present the future creative district of Tallinn to our guests.”
The Estonian Academy of Arts (EAA), founded in 1914, is the only public university in Estonia offering higher education in fine arts, design, architecture, media, visual studies, art culture, cultural heritage and conservation. Located in the capital city, Tallinn, it is an active study and research institution and the leading national centre of innovation in visual culture. More info: www.artun.ee
