Nida Art Colony: call for residency applications (Lithuania)
Nida Art Colony or NAC welcomes proposals for its upcoming winter residencies. Two types of residencies are available. Residencies with grants will be offered to Baltic and Nordic artists for the term of October to December, 2012. The January to May, 2013, term is open to all applicants.
The NAC is located in a remote and beautiful landscape. The residency is appropriate for those artists seeking time, solitude and big studio or open-air space as well as for those who love coincidences and want to meet artists from all over the world in order to collaborate with them now or in the future. The Colony building also hosts student workshops and international artistic projects for shorter periods of time. The NAC is located in the small resort town of Nida.
The Colony provides the necessary living and social conditions to ensure a comfortable environment for the five artists-in-residence. Each of the five residencies is set out on two floors with 65 sq. m of floor space and features all the necessary facilities. The colony is situated about 600 meters away from the sand dunes, and a short walk from the beach. For a list of available equipment, see www.nidacolony.lt
