The program of residences at Kaunas Artists’ House has been created in 2018 with the aim to present the most relevant contemporary artists, curators and cultural researchers working in Lithuania and abroad to the residents and guests of Kaunas city.
The residency program aims to foster intercultural, cross-institutional and cross-sectoral cooperation, to provide artists and cultural producers with the opportunity to become acquainted with the historical and cultural context of the city during their residency, to facilitate their cooperation with other artists or cultural producers and local communities.
The expansion of the activities of the residency program into the periphery of the city and the suburbs is planned in later stages of the program.
In 2018, up to 6 stages of the residency program are scheduled at the premises of Kaunas Artists ‘House and its partners, presenting the work of individual artists or cultural producers or their collectives. The selection of the participants of the residency program will be announced in the beginning of 2018.
