New culture blog includes reviews by expats ({{commentsTotal}})

Back in October, culture.ee and the Estonian Institute invited enthusiasts to express their views on Estonian cultural events. A committee chose 21 reviewers, who now regularly post their opinions in the “Today I am the reviewer. What does the public think of Estonian cultural events?” blog.

The blog already includes around 30 opinions on theater and dance performances, concerts, art exhibitions, films and museums. All posts are available in Estonian, Russian and English.

The reviewers also include a number of foreign nationals living in Estonia. "We are very happy that the culture critics project involves not only Estonian and Russian-speaking Estonian citizens, but also people from France, Spain, Italy and Georgia," the organizers said.
