The Copper Leg Art Residency is located 18 km from Tallinn city center, in the village of Vaskjala, in an old school building surrounded by fields. The house was constructed in 1934 and was newly renovated in the summer of 2017. It is a meeting point for creative people, visual artists, musicians, writers etc. for making their art and showing it to people.
The Residency is managed by the Cultural Centre of Rae and provides residents with accommodation and working spaces, also supporting them in organizing public events, exhibitions, concerts, performances, workshops and cultural gatherings.
The area is very calm and surrounded by beautiful nature which makes it a quiet space to live and work in. At the same time the Estonian capital city Tallinn is easily reachable, one can get to the City center in 25 min by bus or in 15 min by car.
