“Echo of the Space Behind the Well” was a creative happening that brought together a group of art, music, dance and humanities students. The aim of this project was to create links between unique Tõravere environment, science and art through workshops and collaboration. The project resulted in a number of public events: sound and light installations, performances with live music, lectures, stars’ observation with telescope and guided excursion between the installations.
