13 September / Estonian National Museum (ENM) offers a great chance to participate in a free Estonian culture course. The course is primarily meant for the adults who are born in Estonia, have lived here for a longer time, or have just recently arrived. The activities will take place in groups with a support language (Russian or English). The course is organized in cooperation with the Department of Semiotics of the University of Tartu and supported by the volunteers of the Society of Friends of the ENM.

The course consists of five training days and five study trips. It contains interactive presentations, excursions, discussion boards and group works in order to study important historical events, objects of cultural significance, films and works of literature, music, nature and traditions. The participants exchange their experiences, analyse new information and emotions, and compare different cultures with each other. The people who have participated in at least 80% of the course will be given a diploma. The students can receive credit points.

During the last three years, more than 500 people with very different backgrounds have participated in the course. The oldest participant who found her way to the museum thanks to the course is 96 years old.

The course is supported by the Integration Foundation.

The registration deadline is 20.09.2021. More information and registration:  https://bit.ly/EST-culture-course
