CreArt > Visual Arts Residency in Kaunas (Lithuania)
Kaunas invites 2 artists from the CreArt Network to work for one month in Kaunas AiR in the period of September 9 – October 9, 2020. Applicants should be artists born or resident in any of the following cities: Valladolid – Spain; Genoa and Lecce – Italy; Clermont-Ferrand and Rouen – France; Zagreb – Croatia; Kaunas – Lithuania; Lublin and Katowice – Poland; Aveiro – Poland; Skopje – North Macedonia; Liverpool – United Kingdom. Artists from Genoa should be under 35 years old.
The Kaunas artist in residence programme is an initiative of CreArt, launched in 2014. CreArt Kaunas partners PI ‘Artkomas’ have a large experience of organising visual arts projects, and short-term residencies in their city as well as other cities and towns of Lithuania. With their own focus on painting, ‘Artkomas’ co-operates, however, with experts of other visual arts fields (like Kaunas Photo Festival, Kaunas Vytautas Magnus University New Media Studies Department, etc.). Therefore they are able to offer the necessary conditions for creation to painters, photographers, and new media artists, who would like to participate in this part of the CreArt project.
The organisation will reimburse artists’ travel expenses to Kaunas (up to 500€). Studio and accommodation is free. The artists will receive a grant of 350€ + 250€ for materials.
Deadline: 7 August 2020
