The 8th DIGI breakfast of the DBJW Estonian country office took place on January 25th at the Estonian Art Academy (EKA). Participants who couldn’t attend in person had the chance to join via Zoom.
This time we had a workshop about “visual communication” led by two students from the Art Academy, Marianne Lapik and Kert Väljak. In addition to the workshop, both students also introduced the possibilities of studying at the Estonian Art Academy and shared their personal experiences as well. Afterward, the dean, Hilkka Hiiop, gave a quick but exciting presentation about the Baltic-German cultural heritage, using the example of the restauration of the Kolga manor house.
The participants showed great interested in the topic and enjoyed a tasty breakfast. Overall, the event was very successful, and everyone, including the participants and organizers, had a great time. We are already looking forward to our next DIGI breakfast, as it offers the opportunity to meet new and exciting people, enjoy (a free) breakfast together, and learn more about different topics.
