This autumn promises to be lively! We will definitely have a role in it, providing captivating works of French design, concerts, memorable parties, exceptional theater plays and films.

This fall, the French cultural festival, Accord, organized by the French institute of Estonia, takes place from the 14th of October to the 12th of November. Last year, more than 16 000 visitors participated, and this edition will draw in even more people! 

Join us for the exhibition of French design, which takes place at the museum of applied arts and design. Already hosted in several European and Asian countries, it will allow you to discover five works by the legendary designer Philippe Starck, amongst many others.

In addition to French design, you will be able to enjoy exceptional concerts; meet famous writers, French and Estonian, but also discover an original movie program, with fictions and documentaries screening at Kumu and Artis. 

To cap it all, the festival will end with Pierre Boulez concert, winner of 26 Grammy awards, in a former power plant in Kultuurikatel.

The events of the festival will take place in four cities: Tallinn, Tartu, Haapsalu and Viljandi.

All information and full program can be found on the Accord website .
