Tartu 2024 has introduced the initiative “MagiC Carpets” to Estonia. It brings together 20 European cultural organisations in a joint platform – or voice – to change the world through creating art projects. The organisers have successfully completed 147 art residencies, and a total of 4,020 members have participated in the community’s activities to date.
During the darkest time of the year, in November and December, three artists, Anica Huck (GER), Gary Markle (CAN/EE) and Laura Põld (EE), begin an artistic residency in Southern Estonia as a part of the European Union “Creative Europe” platform “MagiC Carpets”. The initiative unites 20 European cultural organisations that provide opportunities for emerging artists to create together with local artists and communities. European Capital of Culture Tartu 2024 joined the platform in 2022.
