Briefly about the organization

KINTAI ARTS artspace is an artistic initiative in a rural location which provides a forum for all artistic branches and interdisciplinary work, encouraging encounters with contemporary art forms outside of urban cultural centers. Interaction and intervention between art and the local community and environment where it is practiced is a significant aspect of the project.

This is an independent non-profit project. The name KINTAI ARTS is derived from the town name KINTAI where the residency was established. The residency program started in 2016.

KINTAI ARTS artspace is based in a former school of Kintai and other buildings of the communal institutions. It is situated in the Pomeranian region of the Curonian Lagoon (Klaipeda region, Silute municipality) and situated in the rural environment on the coast of the Curonian Lagoon near the peninsula of Curonian Spit and Vente Cape.
