On 14 March, the Tartu 2024 team was to hold their first workshop where participants can make a t-shirt, shopping bag and notebook that bear the message of the European Capital of Culture. None of the material used was to be new – the clothes and paper provided at the event were to be from second hand stores or recycled but in good condition, awaiting new owners and lives.
If you’re interested in cultural management, communities of different backgrounds and meaningfully engaging them, and you’ve thought about how culture and the arts can deal with issues of the environment, mental health and other vital topics relevant to Europe, then you are invited to join the Tartu 2024 team as a volunteer for the period of January-December 2020. We are expecting applications from people of 18-30 years old.
On 5 December the City Council of Tartu decided to establish the Tartu 2024 Foundation. The purpose of the new organisation is to continue the preparations of the programme and activities of the European Capital of Culture and bring it to life together with local and foreign partners.
