Rupert’s residency programme is dedicated to local and international practitioners and thinkers (such as artists, writers, curators, researchers, cultural managers and academics), providing them with the opportunity to live and work in Vilnius from 1 to 3 months while developing individual projects and immersing themselves in the region’s contemporary art field. All the residencies are FREE this application round thanks to support from the Lithuanian Council for Culture. The studios are provided by the creative industries hub Pakrantė. In most cases, applicants are responsible for covering personal (daily and travel) expenses. Rupert’s team will issue acceptance letters for successful residents and support their applications for external grants to cover travel, food, production and other costs. Thanks to a newly established partnership with the Goethe-Institut in Lithuania, this round additional support will be offered to a few Germany-based selected residents.
