Tallinn supports 11 exciting cultural events as part of Culture Night festival

Tallinn is supporting 11 cultural events with a total of 20,000 euros as part of the Culture Night (Kultuuriöö) festival on August 30. This year's Culture Night, titled "Endless Horizons," highlights alternative cultural forms.

The goal of Culture Night is to showcase the diversity and vibrancy of Tallinn's cultural life, highlight new and interesting artists and initiatives, and introduce exciting places in city. To enrich the festival program, the city announced an open call for proposals, inviting young and innovative cultural creators to step out of their rehearsal spaces and present their work to a broader audience.

Deputy Mayor Kaarel Oja noted that this year's call sought bold and "out-of-the-box" projects, and the submissions did not disappoint. "Tallinn is a diverse city in every sense, with many creative people at work. This year's Culture Night festival aims to bring to the forefront what usually happens on the periphery. The number of exciting and intriguing ideas submitted confirms the richness of our cultural landscape, and the festival program will undoubtedly be very exciting. Mark August 30 in your calendars," said Oja.

From the 27 projects submitted, the committee decided to support 11. Among the supported projects are:

  • "Culture Night at Põhjala" (Mtü Põhjala tehas) – The Põhjala cultural factory will transform into a true cultural hub in Kopli, featuring an exciting program designed for young audiences, including a literature evening, a theater performance, new craft workshops, and a performance workshop.
  • "Baltic Way 35" (MTÜ Okapi) – In collaboration with school students, a previously created installation will be unveiled, showcasing young people's perspectives on the Baltic Way, which celebrates its 35th anniversary this year. This is part of the documentary photo festival "On the Edge Fest," held at various city locations, including outdoor areas in Telliskivi Creative City and Balti jaam Art Street, as well as Okapi Gallery and Vabamu museum.
  • "Classical Rave in the Estonia Concert Hall" (Sihtasutus Eesti Kontsert) – Sander Mölder and Sten Heinoja, along with classical instrumentalists, will blend genres in a rave held in the Estonia Concert Hall. This unique event will take place in a classical and festive setting.
  • "Organizing the Transgressive Culture Night 'Konsum' at the Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia " (MTÜ Teine Osapool) – "Konsum" is a cultural event that aims to bring together different interests in parties, concerts, and (performing) arts. This always surprising and diverse event promises to offer intellectual entertainment for the most discerning tastes.
  • "Estonian Museum of Architecture's installation pavilion performance at Culture Night 2024" (Estonian Museum of Architecture) – A pavilion will be erected on the green area in front of the Estonian Museum of Architecture for Culture Night. Its use and activation will occur through a short festival-like installation performance program, accessible to a large audience throughout the evening.

These projects are part of Tallinn's commitment to fostering a rich and diverse cultural environment, ensuring that all residents and visitors can enjoy and participate in the city's vibrant cultural life.
