EMTA Tudengiprojektide konkursi võiduprojekt Valgustatud Varjud

Teoks sai EMTA Tundegiprojektide konkursi esimene võiduprojekt: Valgustatud varjud


2014. aastal kuulutas EMTA esmakordselt välja Tudengiprojektide konkursi, et toetada ettevõtlike tudengite loominguliste ideede elluviimist õpingute ajal, täiendada erialaseid oskusi, katsetada värskeid ideid ja ühtlasi end avalikkusele tutvustada. Esimese stipendiumi võitis Anne-Mai Edala ja Kaisa Jõhviku idee interdistsiplinaarsest kontsertetendusest.


Kontsertetendus "Valgustatud varjud" toimus 2015. aasta 31. jaanuaril kell 19.30 Kanuti Gildi SAALis. Antud pealkiri peegeldab kujundlikult taotlust, mille poole selle kontsertetenduse kaudu püüdleme - valgustada veidi neid varjulisi alasid, mis jäävad erinevate loovinimeste vahele ehk luua koos.


Anne-Mai Edala:

„Korraldame seda kontserti, sest tahame enda muusikat teistele jagada. Seekord otsustasime siduda enda muusika tantsu, valguse ja videoga. Kugi muusika on küll võimsa väega universaalne keel, kuid kui keskkond, milles seda kuulatakse ei kõneta, jääb soovitud elamus saamata.Tahtsime me luua meeldejääva elamuse, kaasates oma loomingulisse meeskonda stsenograafe, tantsijaid, valguskunstnikke jne. See meil ka õnnestus. Meeskonnaga liitusid eelmise aasta lõpus koreograaf Veronika Vallimäe, valguskunstnik Emil Kallas ja stsenograaf Inna Fleisher.


See, et valgustuse, stsenograafia jms eest vastutavad vastaval eriala kunstnikud, mitte heliloojad on suur samm edasi kvaliteetsema kontserdielamuse pakkumise suunas. Ja kvaliteet on oluline tingimus, et tänasel ülitihedal kultuurimaastikul silma paista. Soovime, et meie koostöö lõpptulemus oleks terviklik ja läbimõeldud programm.

Loodame, et oma loomingut esitlevate kontsertide korraldamisega oleme eeskujuks ka oma kolleegidele EMTA-s ja mujal. Iseseisvalt oma teoste ettekandmiseks mõeldud kontsertide organiseerimine ja läbiviimine on meid mitmel tasandil arendanud, et olla valmis suuremateks projektideks, mis meid tulevikus ootavad.


Idee interdistsiplinaarsest kontsertetendusest oli meil peas juba mõnda aega olnud, kuid konkreetsemalt hakkasime selle teostamisele mõtlema siis kui kuulutati välja EMTA tudengiprojektide konkurss. Nägime selles konkursis võimalust enda idee teostamiseks toetust saada. Olime väga rõõmsad kui stipendiumi võitsime ning sealt edasi oleme kontserdi õnnestumise nimel julgelt tööd teinud. Stipendiumi võitmine kinnitas meile, et meie idee on aksepteeritud ka professionaalide poolt ning see andis meile julgust pöörduda toetuse saamiseks ja teiste instantside poole. Tänaseks on meie kontserti toetanud ka Eesti Rahvuskultuuri Fond ja Kultuurkapital. Siinkohal täname ka Marko Lõhmust, kes meid projekti kirjutamisel nõustas.“


EMTA jätab Tudengiprojektide konkursiga ning järgmine voor kuulutatakse välja 2015. aasta varakevadel.  

Kaasaegne ooper:Korduma Kippuvad Küsimused

Kuidas elada nii, et oleks hea? Elada nii, et oleks sõpru ja lõbus, aga ei läheks käest ära? Kuidas usaldada nii, et ise ei saaks petta? Kuidas hakkama saada, kui kõrgest haritusest ja lootusest paremale homsele ei piisa? „Korduma kippuvad küsimused“ on ooper, mis küsib seda ja muud. See on ooper, mille kirjutasid noored, mida esitavad noored ja mis räägib noortest. Sellistest noortest, keda ei saa isegi vanaks saamine aidata.


Ooperi kaasaegses klassikalises helikeeles saavad kokku akustilised instrumendid ja elektroonilised vahendid. Eripalgeline muusika kätkeb meeleolusid ülevoolavast energiast kuni meditatiivse mõtiskluseni.

ArtUpCareer Entrepreneurial Course in Helsinki

Anne-Mai Edala

Composer | currently works in Estonian National Theatre | Academic background: studies composition in Master (Estonian Music and Theater Academy). Previously received Bachelor in composition (Estonian Music and Theater Academy)


Last semester I had a great opportunity to participate in the new lecture ArtUpCareer Entreporeneurial Course in EAMT. Within this course some of us had a great chance to visit Finland's cultural enterprising companies. The two-day trip to Finland took place in the end on March and I was very satisfied with the program we were offered.

The most intriguing was getting to know the idea of Suvilahti which is basically the same form of function as Telliskivi Loomelinnak. Taking inconsideration the financial difference between Estonia and Finland I understand that is clear that Suvilahti has much better possibilities than we have, but it is a  great value that we have started such forms of cultural enterprises as Telliskivi Loomelinnak.

I also enjoyed the pitching event in the first day. It was very encouraging to see so many people working with their ideas to perfection and presenting them to a full hall of people so freely. The investors gave very good feedback and advised the contestant to push their ideas further. It that specific pitching event there was a woman who had a great idea and she pitched for the first time in her life. Her idea was fascinating and it was very interesting to see how the public and investors reacted to her brilliant pitch. She immediately received a lot of good feedback and direct contacts to convent her idea into business. I hope this kind of tradition of making pitching events with together with the investors will take roots also in Estonia.

All in all I was very pleased with the opportunity to get to know the cultural field on business in Finland. We have a lot more to learn from our neighbors than I would ever imagine.


Service Design Workshop

Sharing the experience: 

Jelena Vilt

Visual artist/ freelance photographer | currently works in cooperation with Estonian Russian Theater | Academic background: studies Cultural Management  (Estonian Music and Theater Academy). Previously received Bachelor degree within Semiotics and Culture studies (University of Tartu) and Photography (Tartu Art College). Also studied and worked in England, Portugal, Finland.

„Last week we happened to have absolutely fantastic and very intercultural group within Sharyn Farnan’s seminar on Service Design. There was six of us in the team and all of us with pretty different social, academic and cultural backgrounds. But somehow despite the language barrier and all the odds we managed to contribute our very best to the common project, in order to presented it in the most creative way.
In general Sharyn's seminar was designed not only to introduce us Service Design methods, tools and strategies, but also had a very practical impact concerning how to implement ones ideas into reality and how to present them to the broad public from the creative perspective.
I personally found it rather challenging experience because trying to achieve this goal within just two days-session and in an extremely multicultural environment seemed like an impossible thing to do at first. But as we proceed along with our group project we managed to achieve kind of Multicultural Harmony and therefore had no misunderstandings or troubles with listening and understanding each others ideas and thoughts. Which was great as an outcome already.
And even greater in the end when we actually managed to design a new type of service, to present it to others, and even take the Idea to the City Council.
Therefore as a result sharing different Multicultural Ideas turned out into quite interesting Multicultural Talents Network which could grow into rather interesting future possibility for young talents to Bring Their Ideas Back Home“ :)

Here are some other impressions by out team members about this great multicultural experience we all shared within two-day workshop:


Kaia Ljash
Graduated Handicraft and Technical Subjects Teacher from University of Tallinn | In winter-times vorking as an English teacher in Rakvere Vocational School, in summer-times running a small company Muhurada OÜ | Also leading a NGO for women called Jume MTÜ.

„My name is Kaia, and I´m an English teacher in Rakvere Vocational School. In summer-times I deal with our accommodation and entertainment for clients in Muhu island. When I got an information about Sharyn coming to give a seminar about Service Design I was right the same moment sure, that this kind of new and fresh energy I need for our summer-projects. And I got it from the seminar. I have my own ideas about some services to provide in Muhu and now I know what I should do with these ideas next.
And in my English lessons at school to the next generation I just took a new subject about the Millennial Generation and when Sharyn gave us this in seminar as a subject I thought, that even for my English teaching this seminar gave me some new ideas ...

So, everything was and is just perfect for me.
In this seminar I chose a theme about multiculturality, because I find this part of the future world. I liked how our team worked and searched some solutions for this subject. Our team was very good for many reasons: we had multiculturality in our team, we had both genders and we had team members from different generations as well. So, it all was good to the result we had. finally we create a product from this seminar: a website for Multicultural Talents! What else we can do during two short days :) we did the maximum, I think.
My Special Thanks for all team-members and I wish the best for everybody! Let´s start using some more multicultural talents now for develop better world for the next generation!“

„Visiting Tallinn for just one day of training , we could not imagine how many creative and interesting things would be happening during this day ! We also had a chance to meet with a great team of local students from the Estonian Academy of Music and Theater as well as take part in the fantastic workshop guided by Sharyn Farnan from UK. As a result of our cooperation with Estonian Cultural Managers we created an incredibly cool project, and even managed to present it in a very unusual and creative form. Actually we even had an opportunity to present it twice: in the Academy to other students, and also to the local City Council.
I myself study similar subject at the University of Culture and Arts in St.Petersburg, but this type of multicultural training was for us something completely new and therefore absolutely inspiring! And even more importantly while working in a team under our group project despite all our different social and language backgrounds we managed to create something realistic which has a chance to be continued in a real life as well implemented in the most unusual form.
Thanks guys and Tallinn for this unique experience!“

Philosophically educated half-assed drummer and DJ turned into music journalist and musical entrepreneur | editor-in-chief / co-owner at The Baltic Scene (

„When I signed up for this seminar, I was following the yes-man principle of "act now, think later". With no expectations about what's in store, I was happy to see that I was put in a room with such a nice bunch of creative people with different backgrounds. 
After the initial introduction of the concept of "product design", we searched for issues that need attention in this day and age and then formed groups to work on innovative solutions. Perhaps the most important thing I got out of the seminar was the set of methodical tools and steps to design a product or a service. During different times of my career I had done this, but without the clear-cut structure of the process that was introduced during the seminar: find an issue that's bugging you, go on a "service safari" to see how it's been solved before, create a "journey-map" to put in place what happens pre/during/after your product, and ultimately make a "prototype" to put it in action. I had fun every step of the way, from going to city governments' office during the service safari to mapping to creating the prototype video.
In the end, the mantra that got me to participate turned out to be the mantra of the whole seminar. With all the ideas circling around our minds on a daily basis, it's easy to let them slip away. However, if you just put them in action through a very simple set of steps, the ideas can come to being and ultimately transform into something brilliant. 
Likes: The fact that workshops had a bigger part than power-point presentation; "service safari" which took us to the city governments' office; prototyping where we came up with a fun and easy way to explain what we're doing; friendly vibes and working in a multicultural team.
Dislikes: meh“

„The Service Design seminar with Sharyn Farnan was an amazing opportunity to see the practical part of the realization of an Idea. Sharyn demonstrated us the whole process of the idea development, and how it is changing in the course of action and development.
We discussed various tools for the successful designing of a service or a product. And we also happened to have a very dynamic and quite multicultural team which created a bit of the challenge in the beginning but gave a great outcome in the end.
We tried to be conservative and creative at the same time and to give our best in order to implement our common idea into reality. And it turned out Just Great!“ :)

„Workshop coordinator Sharyn Farnan from Scotland was a really inspiring and energetic person who shared her ideas and experience with us, demonstrating good tools for group works, brainstorming and idea generating.
The most essential experience was working with a multicultural team and meeting different exciting young people within the field of culture. It was truly a valuable challenge to work simultaneously in Estonian, English and Russian. All those nice people had different and great ideas, which gave me a good energy charge that I just needed. And it all happened in a very short time and with restricted knowledge. I could just imagine if it could be a longer time or an entire course, it would have been interesting to work more with this team and I would have really looked forward to getting more know-how in the area of cultural services. Our idea of giving a platform for people who are living abroad, to send ideas to home and keep in touch with their community, came to us really quickly, because we all felt this as a problem in Estonian society. There are so few of us, so we have to keep everybody close to us.
Actually I had different expectations for the workshop and I was more looking forward to a lecture from which I could gain new and interesting information, some examples and catch ideas what I can apply on my work or in my cultural management profession. And it was introduced as a lecture on public service of cultural services and events, so unfortunately something had got lost in translation or the theme had changed. However, everything was still useful and I was grateful that I had a chance to participate.“

„Hey, my name is Rima and I am a student of the St.Petersburg University of Culture and Arts. We came with a group of Music Management students to Tallinn for a very short period in order to participate in the multicultural seminar on Design Service and to gain international exchange experience. We were extremely pleased to go through the training with Sharyn Farnan from Scotland and to be involved into this very creative project together with Estonian Cultural Management students and local professionals.
The time that we spent with our team was just wonderful, as well as extremely productive! What a great fun it was to interact with such many creative people and also very interesting to see how people with such different backgrounds contribute to the same project.
In my opinion the theme of our team project was not only interesting but also extremely relevant, and I truly hope that in the nearest future the ideas we have put together will find their way to be implemented and that this start-up would continue working“ :)

Käimas on Eesti Muusika- ja Teatriakadeemia (EMTA) ja Eesti Kunstiakadeemia (EKA) tudengite poolt korraldatav Eesti Vabariik 100 loovkonkurss, mida juhib EMTA kultuurikorralduse magistritudeng Kaarel Kärner. Projekti idee on ühendada graafiline disain ja heliloome, mille tulemusel sünnib Eesti Vabariigi 100. aastapäevast lähtuv kuvandipakett. Riigikantselei saab valminud töödest inspiratsiooni ja mõtteid, kuidas Eesti kuvandit aastaks 2018 formuleerida. Konkursil osalemiseks saatsid disainerid ja heliloojad endi portfooliod ja osalesid meeskondade moodustamise töötoas. Kandidatuuride sõelumise järel jätkasid konkurssi 6 kaheliikmelist meeskonda. Igal meeskonnal on abiks ka mentorid: muusikamentoriks on EMTA jazziosakonna magistrant Kirke Karja ja disainimentoriteks EKA graafilise disaini õppejõud Kerli Virk ja Stella Skulatšjova. 



Disain: Kerli Virk


Konkursitöid esitletakse 10.12 toimuval galaõhtul Rotermanni soolalaos (Eesti Arhitektuurimuuseumis), kus ühtlasi kuulutab žürii välja loovkonkursi võitja. Kõiki konkursile esitatud loovkuvandeid saab näha aasta lõpuni soolalaos. Loovkonkursi elluviimist finantseerivad Riigikantselei ja Kesk-Läänemere INTERREG IV A programmi 2007 - 2013 projekt "Access".



Saša Pepeljajevi ja tudengite muljed muusika, disaini, kunsti, teatri ja tsirkuse ühendamisest ühes suures kaootilises kunstietenduses. 

Autor: Kadri Kallaste

„Pole midagi imestada, kui sa ei suuda printsess Gamaheh võludele vastu panna, eriti just siis, kui ta kasutab sinu kütkestamiseks erinevaid ohtlikke kunste“, kirjutas saksa romantismiautor, E. T. A. Hoffmann täiskasvanutele mõeldud muinasjutus „Isand Kirp“. Ohtlikud kunstid või mitte, aga suvel kutsus printsess Gamaheh kokku umbes 150 noort erineva kultuurivaldkonna esindajat Eestist ja väljastpoolt, et koos loomingulise kaose abil ühtne tervik vormida. 

Etendus Gamaheh valem  

Saša Pepeljajevi lavastatud audiovisuaalne etendus „Gamaheh valem“ toimus 1. juunil XXXII Tallinna Vanalinnapäevade raames. Antud ettevõtmine andis erinevate kunsti valdkondade tudengitele ja kunstnikele võimaluse luua üheskoos sünergiline kunstiteos, mille  põhikomponentideks olid muu hulgas nii kujutav kunst, disain, muusika, tants, teater, videokunst ja animatsioonid kui ka dresseeritud kitsed.  

Antud üritusele on varem viidatud kui ühele omataolisele erinevaid distsipliine läbipõimivale kunstiteosele Eestis. Kuna „Gamaheh valemi“ ürituse möllu on külastaja silmade läbi juba kajastatud, tundus seekord olulisena pärida hoopis osalejatelt nende kogemuse kohta. Mul õnnestus kinni püüda neli üritusel osalenut: Gerli Mägi, Liis Koger, Maarja Nuut ja Liina Palkov, et pärida nende isikliku kogemuse kohta. Neile lisanduvalt saatis omapoolse kommentaari ka interdistsiplinaarse kaose lavastaja, Saša Pepeljaev isiklikult.

Eesti Kunstiakadeemia stsenograafia tudeng, Gerli Mägi võttis „Gamaheh valemist“ osa seoses eriala praktikaga. Tema arvates oli see hea võimalus teha koostööd andeka lavastaja ning teiste noorte kolleegidega. Lisaks sellele ärgitas antud kogemus teda looma ning osa saama teistmoodi teatrist. Lihtsalt külastajana ei oleks arusaam üritusest sama, mis tekiks loominguprotsessis osalejana. Rüütelkonna hoone esinduslikku aulasse loodud putukatest ja mikroskoopidest inspireeritud installatsioon oli Gerli meisterlik kätetöö. „Otsustasin luua meeletu musta liblikapesa, mille seest võis leida läbi luupide vaadates „printsessliblika““, selgitas kunstnik oma töö tausta. „Gamaheh valemist“ oleks Gerli oodanud rohkem erinevate valdkondade esindajate koostööd. Taolised suurejoonelised projektid aitaksid kindlasti kaasa noorte tudengite lõimumisele. Parim tulemus saadaks siis, kui erinevad osapooled ettevalmistusi tehes omavahel rohkem suhtleksid ning ühtse terviku nimel koos pingutaksid. Suvises projektis oldi koos, kuid jäädi siiski teineteisele kaugeks. Ühes ruumis oli mitu erinevat kunstiteost, millest igaüks oma elu elas. Küsimusele, kas taolisi üritusi tuleks veel korraldada, vastab ta, et nüüd võiks luua midagi, mille kaoses oleks ka mingi kord. Kogemus tervikuna oli siiski positiive ja õpetas enda kohta palju, võtab Gerli oma kogemuse kokku. 

Tartu Ülikooli maalikunsti osakonna vilistlast, Liis Kogerit tiivustas projekti panustama soov  seda paremaks muuta. Oma õlimaalidega „Gamaheh valemist“ osavõtnud noort maalikunstnikku köidavad põnevad projektid, mis imetlust ja autunnet tekitavad. „Minu jaoks on väga kihvt erinevate kunstiliikide ühendamine ja ülendamine millegi – käesolevas hetkes idee – suurema nimel, mis saab sündida vaid kooskõlas, sümbioosis“, ütleb Liis. Kuna ta tegeleb nii luule kui visuaalse kunstiga, on need talle idee vahendamiseks väga olulised meediumid. „Need oleks kui ühe sõnumi edastamiseks vajalikud erinevad keeled, nagu pillikeeled, mille puhul ainult ühe kasutamisel tulemus nii rikas poleks“.    



Stockholmi Kuninglikus Muusikaakadeemias õppiv Maarja Nuut osales „Gamaheh valemis“ vene näitetrupi koosseisus, kus tema ülesandeks oli laulda ja viiulit mängida. Kuna ka kokandust võib ohtlikuks kunstiks pidada, organiseeris Maarja maiasmokkade rõõmuks Rüütelkonna hoone hoovis vahvlite küpsetamisaktsiooni. 

„Gamaheh Valemis“ osalemisest oleks Maarja rohkemat oodanud. Tema arust jäi korralduslik pool segaseks, mistõttu kannatas ka infoliikumine erinevate osapoolte vahel. Samas meeldis talle väga vahvleid küpsetada. „See andis võimaluse kohata ja suhelda ammuste tuttavate ja sõpradega, aga samuti ka uute inimestega.“

Üritusest osavõtmisel huvitas teda, millisel viisil erinevaid distsipliine omavahel seotakse ning milline on selle juurde kuuluv ettevalmistusprotsess. Eelnevale lisanduvalt lootis ta leida uusi ideid ja ka kontakte edaspidisteks koostööprojektideks.

Maarja sõnul pole Stockholmi Kuninglikus Muusikakoolis „Gamaheh valemile“ sarnaseid üritusi siiani läbi viidud. See oleks nimelt liiga riskantne ja nõuaks spontaanset lähenemist. Võimalusel sooviks ta sellistest üritustest kindlasti uuesti osa võtta. Ilmselt tuleks aga enne projektis osalemist põhjalikumalt selle tagamaid uurida.   

Liina Palkov õpib Eesti Kunstiakadeemia magistriõppes tekstiilidisaini. Tõuke „Gamaheh valemist“ osa võtta andis Michael Haagensen, kes pöördus tekstiiliosakonna poole, et tutvuda ühe valikaine raames valminud  paberinstallatsioonidega. Liina arvates andis „Gamaheh valem“ talle hea võimaluse eelnevalt teostatud prototüüpide ideest rakenduslik suund välja arendada. 

Projektis osalemisel oli esimeseks sammuks ürituse kohta jagatud info menetlemine, Saša Pepeljaevi kontseptsiooni ning valminud paberinstallatsioonide vahel ühendavate sisuliste joonte otsimine. Seejärel tuli panustada installatsioonidele asukoha leidmisse, nende valmistamisse ja ülespanekusse. Protsessi eesmärgiks oli integreerida paberist installatsioon etendusse nii füüsiliselt kui sisuliselt, et see looks vastava meeleolu ning tekitaks Saša lavastusest osavõtjate tegevusele sobiva tausta.    

Liina arvab, et „Gamaheh valem“ oli huvitav kogemus. See polnud mitte kõige tavalisem näide koostööprojektist. Nagu oodatud, liitis projekt erinevate erialade esindajad kokku, mida muidu väga tihti ei juhtu. Kõige tihedamalt tuli tekstiili eriala üliõpilastel suhelda näiteks stsenograafia osakonna tudengitega. 

 „Saša andis meile ühise loo. Igale kollektiivile jäi aga siiski vabadus tõlgendada seda läbi enda valitud vahendite ja meediumide. Etenduse tulemus põhines vastastikusel usaldusel ja vabadusel. See tähendab, et loominguline osa ei olnud piiratud ega kontrolli all“, võtab Liina oma kogemuse kokku.  

Küsimusele, mille jaoks on erinevaid distsipliine ühendavad projektid head, vastab Liina, et sellised üritused annavad võimaluse näha, mida teised kunstnikud teevad ning kuidas nad mõtlevad. See avardab silmaringi ning lisab uusi perspektiive, mille suunas vaadata. Erinevaid distsipliine ühendavaid projekte tuleks, lausa peaks, tema arvates veel korraldama.

Võimalusel osaleks ta sarnases ürituses kindlasti uuesti.   



„Gamaheh valemit“ lavastades oli mul mitmeid eesmärke“, kirjutab Saša Pepeljaev. Moskvas elav tuntud lavastaja ja koreograaf soovis muusikud viia ootamatusse keskkonda ning murda kontsertide traditsioonilisi raame, mida defineerivad pidulik filharmoonia saal ja õhtukleidid. „Ma soovisin anda muusikutele võimaluse viia oma looming väljakutsuvasse keskkonda ning luua koht, kus uutel ideedel oleks samaväärne visuaalne taust.“

Saša arvates vastas tulemus tema ootustele: „Meil õnnestus luua kaootiline ja seiklusrikas segadus, mille keskel külastajad ja esinejad teed teineteiseni üritavad leida“.  

Rääkides püüdest luua kaost, viitab Saša ka segadusele organisatoorses töös. See oleks ka  ainus, mida ta võimalusel muudaks. „Väga keeruline oli täita kõikide kunstnike tehnilisi nõudmisi. Kui kogu ürituse planeerimiseks oleks rohkem aega olnud, oleks tulemus tunduvalt parem olnud“, arvab ta.

„Gamaheh valemi“ lavastamise käigus nägi lavastaja situatsioone, mil ürituseks valitud keskkond muusikute, näitlejate ja kujutavate kunstnike fantaasiale hoogu juurde andis.

„Gamaheh valemi“ sarnaseid interdistsiplinaarseid üritusi võiks Saša sõnul loomulikult sagedamini korraldada, kuid kindlasti mitte kaks korda kuus.

Ka pole tema arvates erinevaid valdkondi esindavate kunstnike ühendamises midagi erilist. „Mul on tunne, et neile see meeldib. Kunstnikud võivad mulle küll vastu vaielda, aga mind köidab ühe projekti raames vastandlike ideede ja esteetika ühendamine. Selline situatsioon annab publikule eesõiguse otsustada, mida nad näha tahavad“.  





Septembrist veebruarini toimuvad  2 korda kuus loovtudengitele suunatud ettevõtlikku mõtlemist ja käitumist arendavad seminarid. Ehkki EKA ja EMTA tudengitel on õppekavades nii mõnigi ettevõtlikkust arendav õppeaine, pakub esimene ainekursus võimalust erinevatel erialadel õppivatel noortel luua kontakte omavahel ja ettevõtlusmaailmaga pisut vähem akadeemilises vormis. 



Loovettevõtlusega sidemete loomiseks pakuvad ainekursuse raames inspiratsiooni mitmed huvitavad ettevõtjad ja koolitajad. Igal  seminaril on erinev teema, meetod, koolitaja ja perspektiiv. Näiteks Indrek Maripuu õhutas tudengeid ideede leidmiseks kastist välja mõtlema; Katri Rebane, Kerstin Hallik ja Peeter Rebane jagasid oma ettevõtluslugu Klaveriloomadest, mis liidab nii kunsti kui muusika toredaks tervikuks; disainiettevõtjad Velvetist avasid muuhulgas teenusedisaini tagamaid ja Hannes Lents julgustas oma ideed katsetama kohe siin ja praegu. Tulekul on veel mitmed põnevad kohtumised ja kontaktseminarid ning kursuse lõpetab õppereis Soomes. Kogu programmiga saab tutvuda siin. Liituda võivad ka uued huvilised ja osaleda võib ka üksikutel seminaridel. Tule ja võta kursusekaaslane kaasa! 



Ettevõtlikkuskursuse  läbinud tudengid on usutavasti paari kraadi võrra enesekindlamad  oma ideid ellu viima, kontakte looma ja ettevõtluses oma talenti rakendama. Kindlasti on neil uusi tuttavaid ja selgem pilt, mida tähendab loovettevõtlus. Projekti rahastatakse Ettevõtluse arendamise Sihtasutuse Euroopa Sotsiaalfondi vahenditest. Projekti juhivad Kaari Kiitsak-Prikk EMTAst  ja Kelli Turmann EKAst.

Ülikooliaeg pakub lisaks rutiinsele õppetööle võimalusi end täiendada ning saada nö 'päris elu' kogemusi paljudel erinevatel viisidel. Kooli foorumi listides, stendidel ja suusõnaliselt tudengite vahel liigub info kõikvõimalike projektide kohta, võimalik on täiendada end nii valitud erialal, kui ka panna proovile koolitööga mitte seotud valdkondades ja ühtlasi leida kõigele laiem vaatenurk. Heaks näiteks sellisest võimalusest on Euroopa Liidu poolt rahastatav Eesti Kunstiakadeemia (edaspidi EKA) ja Eesti Muusika- ja Teatriakadeemia (edaspidi EMTA) loovtudengitele suunatud ühisprojekt Access Creativity. Artiklis tuleb lähemalt juttu kahest tudengite poolt juhitud ettevõtmisest – prostitutsioonile tähelepanu juhtivast projektist „Inimloomaaed“, mis kulmineerus seminariga 2013. aasta mais ning novembris toimunud „Ära kiusa teda!“ nime kandvast noorte lühifilmi töötoast, mis tegeles koolivägivallaga ning rõhutas õpilastevahelist koostööd. Paljudele osalistele olid need võimaluseks esmakordselt kokku puutuda projektijuhtimisega. 



„Inimloomaaed“ on suurepärane näide projektist, mis võimaldas üliõpilastel, lisaks korralduslikule kogemusele, süveneda ka teemasse ning saada ülevaade ühest väga mitmetahulisest sotsiaalsest küsimusest. Kui juttu on prostitutsioonist, siis tundub, et käiakse justkui ümber palava pudru – seisukohti on mitmesuguseid, kuid meedias ei ole teema siiski väga aktuaalne ning ekspertidega suheldes selgus, et levib palju müüte. „Inimloomaaia“ projektimeeskond alustas üldlevinud lähtepunktist, mis vaatles prostitutsiooni kui kuritegelikku ekspluateerimise vormi, kuid koostöös Eesti Politsei- ja Piirivalveameti, rehabilitatsioonikeskuse ATOLL ja Tervise Arengu Instituudi spetsialistidega jõuti arusaamani, et tegemist on hoopis keerulisema sotsiaalse taustaga küsimusega. Projekti läbiviimise eest vastutanud Marja Leisk (EMTA vilistlane) leidis, et lisaks teema tõstatamisele oli nende jaoks eriti oluline leida ürituse eesmärk ning sihtgrupp: „Mõtlesime pikalt, kellele me seda ürtust teeme ja lõpuks otsustasime keskenduda kogu ühiskonnale ning meediakuvandi, mille ohvrid ka meie ise alguses olime, muutmisele.“ Poole aasta pikkune põhjalik eeltöö päädis seminariga, kus esinesid nii eelnevalt mainitud organisatsioonide kui ka Sotsiaalministeeriumi esindajad ettekannetega teemal „Prostitutsioon kui ärimudel Eestis“, vaadati filmi „Hoorade hiilgus“ ning esitati performance „Pop-up bordell“, mis kino Sõpruse esisel väljakul vaataja prostitutsiooni reaalsusega silmitsi asetas. 


See, kuidas erineva taustaga üliõpilased EKAst, EMTAst ja ka Tallinna Ülikoolist (edaspidi TÜ) end infomürast läbi närisid ning nii sisult kui visuaalselt väga professionaalse projekti kokku panid, on suurepärane näide, mis tõestab, et interdistsiplinaarsust on põhjust väärtustada. 24. mail toimunud seminari üheks eesmärgiks oli kummutada mõned meedias levinud müüdid prostitutsiooni kohta ning intensiivne eeltöö projekti elluviimiseks andis tudengitele võimaluse lähemalt kokku puutuda nii turunduse, produktsiooni, tootmise, kui muude valdkondadega. Projektist on jäljena maha jäänud informatiivne kodulehekülg





Teine heategevuslik sotsiaalprojekt nimega “Ära kiusta teda!” kõnetas ehk suuremat hulka ühiskonnas, kuivõrd teema leiab pidevalt negatiivsete näidete varal kajastamist ka meedias. Ühiskondlikku probleemi lahkava ettevõtmisega olid oodatud osalema koolinoored vanuses 13-18 aastat. Esmalt paluti noortel saata lühifilmi stsenaarium, mis käsitleks kiusamist kas siis kodus, koolis, internetis või mujal. Võidustsenaarium, mille põhjal 17. novembril valmis lühifilmi töötoas 4-minutiline film, räägib koolikiusamisest. Filmi levitatakse õpieesmärgil ka kõikides koolides, kelle koolinoored Telliskivi Loomelinnakus toimunud ettevõtmises osalesid. 

Filmimise kõrval toimusid erinevad õpitoad (näitlemise, kaamera, montaaži, heli ja muusika, meigi ja kostüümi, rekvisiitide ja võtteplatsi kujunduse ning animatsiooni), mida viisid läbi üliõpilased EKAst, EMTAst, TÜst ja Balti Filmi- ja Meediakoolist. Projektis osalenud EKA nahakunsti osakonna tudeng Kristiine Špongolts hindab just ettevõtmise sotsiaalset eesmärki: „Ma ei ole varem märganud, et EKAs saab tegeleda sotsiaalsete projektidega ning et ülikoolid teevad omavahel koostööd mitte ainult loomingule tuginedes vaid ka sotsiaalse mõõtmega projektides.“



Töötoale eelnenud mitmekuuline ettevalmistus oli korraldusmeeskonda kuuluvatele tudengitele väga õpetlik ning demonstreeris, et erinevate erialade üliõpilastel on  erinevad, kuid teineteist täiendavad. Projekti eesmärgi edasiandmisel oli üheks oluliseks osaks teema visuaalne esitamine. Seda, et visuaalne keel on sotsiaalsete sõnumite edastamisel võimas vahend, leidis ka Kristiine: „Minu meelest kunst ongi meedium, mille kaudu suhelda. Näiteks kiusamise teemalise filmi kaudu on võimalik jõuda paljudeni. Film võib olla ka väga teraapilise mõjuga.“


Nii „Inimloomaaed“ kui „Ära kiusa teda!“ projektidega rõhutati üksikisiku vastutust. „Inimloomaaed“ ei viita mitte kannatavatele ohvritele, vaid inimkonna mitmekesisusele, sotsiaalsele taustale, mis tihtilugu suunab üksikinpiidi. „Ära kiusa teda!“ projekti pealkirja puhul tasub tähele panna, et hüüdlause vorm kutsub üles empaatiale ning tähelepanelikkusele ja sekkumisvajadusele meid ümbritsevate kaaskodanikega toimuva suhtes. Kui enamasti räägitakse kiusatavast ja kiusajast, siis seekord seadsid üliõpilased oma eesmärgiks tähelepanu juhtimise neile, kes kiusamist märkavad, kuid ei sekku. Access Creativity annab projektides osalevatele tudengitele võimaluse panustada valdkondades, millega nad igapäevaselt oma õppetöös kokku ei puutu. Lisaks saadakse kogemus Euroopa Liidu projektides osalemisest ja projektijuhtimisele esitatavatest nõuetest.  



Kahte projekti tagantjärgi analüüsides ilmnesid mitmed kattuvad nüansid, mis oluliselt aitavad kaasa projekti läbiviimisele. Heategevuslike sotsiaalprojektide õnnestumise puhul on esmatähtsaks idee leidmine, mis kõnetaks nii tegijaid kui ka üldsust laiemalt. Mitte vähemtähtis pole projektimeeskonna tuumiku kokku panemine, kuivõrd vabatahtlikele projektidele on omane liikmete muutlikkus. Lisaks sellele, et projekti läbiviimine on õpetlik osalejatele (sihtgrupile, laiemale avalikkusele diskussiooni tekitamiseks), on oluline ka tõdeda, et paljudele üliõpilastele on see esmane kokkupuude projektijuhtimise protsessiga. Hea meetod end joonel hoida on kohe alguses ära sõnastada oma eesmärk ning sihtgrupp, siis saab sellele aeg-ajalt tagasi viidates käest kadunud järje lihtsalt üles leida. Isegi, kui iga üliõpilasprojekt ei pruugi maailma muuta või isegi kestvat märki jätta, on ilmselge, et tegemist on väärtuslike kogemustega kõigile osalistele. 


Aitäh Marja Leiskile ning Kristiine Špongoltsile, kes jagasid oma kogemust projektis osalemisest.
