07. juuli, 2013

How to convince an Estonian to compose with a Pole? How to convince independent Polish artist to participate in the Estonian festival? Show themthe best art from each country. And create the right conditions for cooperation. 


And that is exactly what Art Meetings is doing. The project’s goal is to promote polish independent culture abroad and to initate international cultural cooperation. Created by Firlej club (Wroclaw, Poland) and Eclectica foundation, Art Meetings has two 2013 editions: Estonian and Ukrainian.

Art Meetings will organise concerts of The Kurws and Niwea in Tallinn. The bands, the Polish alternative music national team, will perform on July 12th and 13th within the Patarei Dust Culture festival in Tallinn. The festival is held in atmospheric space of former prison. Art Meetings is also an incubator of Polish-Estonian cooperation. The joint project of the most talented electronic musicians of both countries – Kaido Kirikmäe and Dawid Szczęsny – will have its premiere on Dust Culture’s stage. In addition, Polish-Estonian group of actors led by Monika Dawidziuk will present interactive performance Miłość Love Armastus, an unconventional lesson of Polish and Estonian.

Art Meetings in Tallinn is also a competition for Estonian musicians. 60 bands participated, 3 were selected to perform at Patarei Dust Culture. During the festival the international jury will choose the winner. The main prize is the performance at Asymmetry Festival in Wrocław – a unique opportunity to present the music to international public and several CEOs of leading European festivals.
