According to
Kati Ilves, artistic director of Tartu 2024, the goal of Tartu and Southern
Estonia as the European Capital of Culture is to offer special and innovative
experiences to audiences from both Estonia and abroad. In order to create a
comprehensive programme, the Tartu 2024 Foundation also supports international
large and medium-sized events planned to take place in 2024 in Tartu.

“Projects
focused on events aimed at the audience are welcome to participate in the call
for proposals. The call for proposals does not finance infrastructure development
costs, fixed costs of institutions and the publication of periodical media,” Ilves adds.

The
experiences and activities included in the forthcoming programme of the
European Capital of Culture represent the values of the Tartu 2024 artistic
concept Arts of Survival. The Arts of Survival are: environmentally
sustainable urban and rural culture, physical and mental health, highlighting
regional characteristics, education and smart solutions, transgenerational
co-creation, critical awareness, and cross-sectoral cooperation.

The call for
proposals for international projects in Tartu is open from 1 January to 3 April
2022.
