At the centre of various programme parts, discussions and activities of Tallinn Music Week (TMW) city festival last week in Tallinn were smart and sustainable human-centered cities that have room for creativity as well as entrepreneurialism that brings together different areas. The TMW Creative Impact Conference was the first international conference in Estonia to reach a gender balance among speakers. To highlight the future changes in Tallinn by the Main Street city development, the TMW transformed Viru Square into a pedestrian-friendly festival oasis as part of an unprecedented public space experiment.
