Estonishing Evenings to discuss Estonia’s image

The Estonishing Evenings event series, supported by Estonian World, continues in Tallinn, this time taking a closer look at the image and perception of Estonia, both at home and abroad.

Organised in partnership with Estonian World and the Telliskivi Creative City, the Estonishing Evenings series runs English-speaking events that host different speakers expressing their viewpoints and experiences on hot topics and matters concerning both the locals and non-natives living in Estonia.

At the September event, on Monday, 23 September, Estonishing Evenings is taking a closer look at the image and perception of Estonia, both at home and abroad. “We will discuss how the image of Estonia as a ‘wunderkind’ in the world has actually influenced the country and how much of this perception is really true,” the organisers said.

The event will be opened by Silver Tambur, the editor-in-chief of Estonian World, who will give an overview of the developments, milestones and perceptions of Estonia throughout the years.

It will be followed by a panel discussion and the speakers include Sten Tamkivi, Maris Hellrand, Dario Cavegn and Katharina Sowa.
