The relocation of the Estonian Academy of Arts to Kalamaja has created a breeding ground for future professionals in the creative industries and a place where design innovation, unprecedented art and radical ideas about our past and future are dealt with. The Kalamaja urban space, known especially for its homely bohemian environment, has accomodated a larger-than-usual public institution in the form of a university. EKA is one of the five national public universities and therefore part of a larger field of information and has a wide profile among both professionals and academics. In addition, it must be acknowledged that bohemian and perhaps more cultural and the art-loving Kalamaja neighborhood welcomes EKA as an inspiring institution.

The studio project of the third course is looking for a new face or space for the symbiosis of EKA with the public, where EKA turns its face to the Kalamaja community and also to a wider professional audience with its knowledge, new works and its academic family.
