Physical conference

Biotoopia conference takes place on 26-28 August in an historical fishing village Viinistu on the north coast of Estonia (time zone UTC+03), 75 km from the capital Tallinn. 20 years ago, Jaan Manitski founded a museum of his huge art collection there and turned a Soviet era fishing factory into Viinistu Art Harbour . The Art Harbour offers Biotoopia a range of diverse facilities: restaurant, hotel, museum, galleries, arbour, port, sauna and lots of cosy corners for private meetings, discussions and making new acquaintances. Conference takes place in various museum halls among many masterpieces of Estonian art, and sea views. Besides the permanent collection, there will be exhibitions of Estonian and international artists working with the themes of the Biotoopia conference. The conference will also include music and dance performances. In addition, there will be a selection of side events, like nature hikes and boat trips provided by the Viinistu Art Harbour.
