Borderland Poetics, a co-operation programme between CCA Estonia, Rupert (centre for arts, residencies and education in Lithuania) and Icelandic Art Center, is inviting emerging art professionals from Estonia, Iceland or Lithuania to apply for the 2021 project assistant position. There are three different positions available, one in each institution: CCA and Tallinn Photomonth (Tallinn/Narva, Estonia), Sequences festival (Reykjavik, Iceland) and Rupert (Vilnius, Lithuania).
The project assistant positions are an opportunity for students or recent graduates to gain 1 or 2 month long first-hand work experience and contribute to preparing and producing a major art event. This is a paid opportunity that promotes cooperation between the Nordic and Baltic countries.
The Programme offers a scholarship of €2400 and additionally covers return travel expenses for each participant. Accommodation agreements must be made by the participants themselves but the programme will partly cover these expenses depending on the price. The applicant must be willing to work 1 or 2 months in Tallinn, Reykjavik or Vilnius.
The assistant will work closely with an appointed supervisor, supporting them in various responsibilities related to exhibition and event production, management and communication. The training will take place during autumn 2021.
