In changing times, you have to do things differently. One area, where changes have been felt especially acutely is the cultural industry. Initially set to take place in March, the international new music and city festival Tallinn Music Week (TMW) will now take place on 27-29 August in a novel hybrid format. This means that digital participation is possible for those, who cannot participate due to travel restrictions.
TMW, the “festival for tomorrow’s music and ideas”, brings together different artforms and civic activism, while shining the spotlight on new and noteworthy music from Estonia and abroad. Focalised to the Telliskivi and Noblessner areas, the music programme includes the best new Estonian artists, as well as notable international acts, such as the Danish rock band Iceage, British duo The KVB, and the Finnish jazz supergroup Jarmo Saari Republic.
The range of topics covered at TMW’s Creative Impact Conference covers issues from practical questions to cross-disciplinary future concepts. The challenges that have hit the industry this year will be discussed by representatives from the music and culture industry, as well as policymakers, across three main topics: Music Industry 2.0, Neighbours, and the role of culture in Sustainable Development Goals with a special focus on Resilience and Leading Change.
