The working space

  • The Arvo Pärt Centre’s creative room is a spacious white room with a large glass wall overlooking the pine forest. There is a large round table, desk, sofa and extra chairs. If desired, the large white wall can be used to set schemes or diagrams. It is possible to use a large screen and flipchart if required. There are 2 musical instruments in the creative room at all times – a compact digital piano (Yamaha Arius YDP S54) and a 88-key Una Corda. It is also possible to rent a MIDI keyboard (Studiologic SL88).
  • The size of the creative room is 36 square metres (9m x 4m).
  • During the residency period, the room is meant for one resident/working group only.
