By showcasing Ireland's rich cultural heritage, we can reap long-term and positive benefits for Ireland's reputation and its relationship with the people of Estonia.
Ireland's culture is a unique national strength and a source of strong links between Estonia and Ireland. It's one of our greatest competitive advantages, acting as a "door opener" that converts into jobs, trade, investment and tourism. It’s also an effective way of connecting with the Irish community.
We're involved in a range of cultural activities, which raise awareness of Ireland and also enhance our ties with Estonia. We promote cultural relations through a number of initiatives. For example, the Embassy supports a range of cultural initiatives throughout the year, through collaboration with festival organizers, artists, writers (e.g. Head Read Literature Festival, Black Nights Film Festival, Viljandi Folk Festival), and so on.
