Tartu Design Week - overview

< Back to the news list 2013 July 18d.

The week started with a couple of pre-events concentrated 
on fashion design and fashion industry, making
 way to the grand opening show of the week dedicated 
to introducing fashion designers active in Tartu. The 
show with live music background and wonderful atmosphere 
was warmly welcomed by the audience. The show was followed by a series of events including a fashion 
bazaar the next day, a bicycle tour about architecture in Tartu, workshop about making furniture out of 
recycled material, lectures and discussions on different subjects related to design, and exhibitions of 
accessoire, lamps as well as the works of the graduates of Tartu Art College. The week ended with another 
public show combining paper ships on the river Emajõgi to promote the use of different materials in 
unexpected situations as well as raise awareness about the river as a fairly unused resource of Tartu and 
modern dance.  
Tartu Design Week was extremely well received both by the public and the press. Tartu Centre for Creative 
Industries will certainly try to convert it into a regular event bringing excitement and new ideas to Tartu in 
the beginning of every summer.
