I had the honor to speak at the Opening Seminar of the KultuuriKatel / Creative Hub Development Center, an incredible abandoned power plant in the heart of Tallinn, Estonia, with 10,000 square meters undergoing renovations and will be used as a platform and facility for networks, knowledge and art. The space will include studios, black boxes, galleries, rooms with future development capabilities and public attractions and is scheduled to open next year. The opening seminar discussed different approaches to creating physical and virtual networks, community spaces and engaging audiences with a great focus on aspects of how to provide and adhere to cultural, social and artistic values through work with various types of financing bodies and institutions (from commercial, to governmental or community). The seminar was a part of the Stalker Festival which took place in the power plant itself with an array of performances and installations.

Thank you to all at KultuuriKatel, Creative Hub Development Center and the Stalker Festival for an inspiring weekend.
