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.
