Local Culture as a Component of Spatial Design conference


Create or Capitulate! – the South Estonian spatial design conference shapes the vision of small towns

What is the vision of small towns in South Estonia? What is their preferred living environment like and how do they perceive a strong sense of place identity? The Create or Capitulate. Local Culture as a Component of Spatial Design conference is being organised by Valga rural municipality government and will take place in November 2023. It invites participants to explore place design through local heritage and culture.

During the vision event, we will seek answers to questions such as how to create valuable space around us, what the role of community is in place design, and whether culture and art really are the cornerstones of place identity. The conference is preceded by so-called walkshops (inspired by Walk – the historic name of Valga), thematic workshops and discussions which attempt to unveil the spatial and architectural essence of small towns in South Estonia.

Date: 15. November 2023

Location: Valga town, Valga county
