connecting gardens

The aim of this series of events is to bring people together by visiting different gardens and introducing them to the urban space, especially for those who have come to Tallinn from other parts of the world. So far, we have visited three gardens as part of the project:

  • Kadriorg Roof Garden, where we could not only admire the pop-up exhibition but also draw our own inner garden.
  • Kadriorg Community Garden, where in addition to enjoying the wonderful garden, we focused on creative writing.
  • In the framework of the National Culture Days, we also visited the Old Town Community Garden, where we learned about the wisdom of Hildegard and met families who had come from Turkey to live in Estonia and tasted the dishes they had prepared.

city camps for young people in sillamäe

Our city camp in Sillamäe, which this year had the largest number of children from Ukraine, ended with the opening of a festive art exhibition in the garden of the Sillamäe Museum. But before that we had time to do an Italian food workshop, visit the Päite animal park and Narva and of course have a lot of fun with paints and pencils.

empowering and capacity building of ukrainian refugees

The aim of the project is to empower the vulnerable groups in the Estonian society by involving and empowering children, young people and women who have fled the war in Ukraine and by supporting and raising the awareness of teachers and support staff in Estonian schools.

Three sets of activities will be carried out under the project:

  • a programme of city camps for children and young people;
  • a support group for women;
  • a series of workshops for teachers and support professionals.
  • The project will be carried out in cooperation with the Räägu School of Tallinn Lilleküla Gymnasium and Norwegian psychotherapist Olga Lehmann.
  • The project is funded by the Active Citizens Fund.
