OPEN CALL for Residency Programme at Kintai Arts Residence for 2020
We are happy to announce an open call for emerging and established artists working in the fields of visual arts and creative writing to apply for a residency programme in Kintai, Lithuania.
Kintai Arts Residence is a rather new artistic initiative located on the coast of the Curonian Lagoon, Lithuania. Its goal is to provide spaces for artists coming from various fields (music, visual or interdisciplinary) to work solitary or in active social conditions, encouraging encounters with contemporary art practices outside of urban cultural centers.
This elaborate initiative seeks to create a productive environment for inspiration and concentration as well as establishing close cooperation between artists, musicians, thinkers, and professionals from other cultural fields through interdisciplinary programmes and residencies. As a knowledge-based platform for innovative creative production, Kintai Arts Residence integrates the social and cultural framework of Klaipėda region while simultaneously supporting a strong international focus.
Located in a small rural town of a few-hundred people, the Residence is currently inviting artists to develop their visual projects. Kintai Arts also organizes Kintai Music Festival that in 2020 will be taking place for the 9th time. Kintai itself is a quiet town closely connected to the surrounding nature. With an hour drive or trip by boat, one can reach world-renowned natural landscapes of Curonian Spit, the city of Klaipėda, or stroll around the uncanny landscapes of Lithuania Minor.
This open call is for residencies in the timeframe of May–June and 6 September–6 October. There are 7 rooms with individual or shared bathrooms and kitchens, shared studios and a possibility to do a public presentation or an exhibition in the two main halls or other cities in Lithuania by arrangement.
Any living, production or traveling expenses are to be covered by the artist-in-residence.
The price for a room with personal bathroom and kitchen is 390 EUR per month (30 days), with shared facilities – 300 EUR per month.
Please send your application with portfolio, a brief project proposal and residency preferences to [email protected] until 15 April. Also, please comment on the necessary tools for your project development.
