Christmas Charity Fair revenues go to the SOS Children's Village via the Society of International Relations
On November 30 University of Tartu Christmas Charity Fair organized by the University of Tartu Centre for Arts was held for the second time.
This year's revenues - 293,1 euros all together - supported the Student Council of Faculty of Humanities and Arts (SCFHA) who chose a student project to finance. SCFHA decided in favor of a project that support children who need it. The winner of the project contest was the Society of International Relations who said about their idea: "We decided that Christmas is the time of giving, not taking, so all the revenues will go to the SOS Children’s village."
Photos of the fair can be found from Facebook.
At the fair, one could find Christmas gifts from cookies to design jewellery sold by the staff and students of the University. Furthermore, different units and organisations of the university were selling as well.
Professional art, design and handicraft was offered by the staff, students and alumna of the UT Viljandi Culture Academy Department of Estonian Native Crafts and also by the students of Pallas University of Applied Sciences (Art UAS in Tartu) and Tartu Art School.
The profile of the goods was wide: metal, clay and textile handicraft, professional paintings and drawings, vintage and design jewellery, homemade baked goods and so much more.
There was also a pop-up café set up by the university’s academic women’s choir.
