The Cultural and Educational Centre Viimsi Artium is a contemporary interdisciplinary hub for the arts, which brings together performing and visual arts with music, film and science. While Viimsi Artium will be a centre of attraction to international and local artists and companies, it will also cater for the interest of the community and will revitalize local cultural and social life. Since Viimsi Artium houses three hobby schools such as the Viimsi Music School, Viimsi Art School and Science Centre, it also prioritizes the intersection of education and arts, providing opportunities for comprehensive personality development through arts and science.
