Fotografiska Tallinn Becomes ECB’s Artsy New Member
The Tallinn branch of the renowned, Stockholm-based Fotografiska – photographic art center – joined the Estonian Convention Bureau in February, opening up fantastic new opportunities to combine culture with event hosting.
Located in the Telliskivi Creative City just outside the capital’s Old Town, the gallery chiefly specialises in world-class photo exhibitions, but also acts as a busy cultural hub where events, masterclasses and meetings with artists are regularly held.
Its flexible meeting space, a bright and open former factory hall on the building’s ground floor, measures 250 m2 and can accommodate up to 300 guests or even more when combined with the café area or courtyard. Conferences and other gatherings can easily be combined with a guided tour of the gallery.
The facility additionally includes a café, gift shop and a zero-waste midset restaurant – a particular bonus for organisers interested in sustainable catering. Headed by respected Estonian chef Peeter Pihel, Fotografiska Restaurant occupies the building’s top floor and offers amazing views.
“We couldn’t be happier to have such a high-profile and original venue as one of our members, especially one that sits right in the middle of the popular Telliskivi area where so much of Tallinn’s creative spirit comes together. It’s clear that Fotografiska is going to be a huge hit with international event organisers,” said Kadri Karu, the ECB’s Managing Director.
That prediction is far from a risky one. Though Fotografiska has only been open since last June, it has already played host to several high-level international events including the Tallinn Digital Summit and the Baltic Brand Conference.
