Telliskivi Creative City 10!

🎈 Telliskivi Creative City celebrates 10th birthday! 🎈

As the 21st century landed, the former Kalinin factory was an impenetrable colossus at the intersection of Kalamaja and Pelgulinna districts. Commoners had no business here.

In 2009, the dozy region started to wake up – Telliskivi Creative City was born, which became the pulse of the creative power at the city. Our first tenant, the HQ of Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival were  followed by a weekly flea market and a skate park called Haigla, or Hospital.

Today Telliskivi Creative City is a self-sufficient city that overflows with  culture, design, street art, eateries and innovative businesses. On the other hand, Creative City is the largest creative business center in Estonia, which is home to 250 creative companies and organisations.

On 26th of April to 5th of May Telliskivi Creative City celebrates its birthday with a big festival full of creation.

Creative City will open the history of it and show its different facets by sub-festival “Hidden Side” which will open doors to the backrooms of several creators and artists. Expect workshops, concerts and talks.
