How can we truly bring foreign funding back home? This question kicked off the Kultuurikompass morning coffee, which provided valuable information about the possibilities of foreign funding to Tartu and Southern Estonia cultural organisers.

There is nothing better than warm knitwear to ward off the cold. Since the peak of the knitting season is here, the European Capital of Culture Tartu 2024 created five new patterns for all crafting enthusiasts to knit on dark evenings. Fresh colour patterns are appropriate for both experienced knitters and those making their first steps into the world of knitting. You can knit all of the patterns together or just your favourites and incorporate them into your work.
