Kintai Arts Residence is announcing an open call for emerging and established artists working in the field of visual arts to apply for a residency programme in Kintai, Lithuania. Kintai Arts Residence is a rather new artistic initiative located on the coast of the Curonian Lagoon, Lithuania. Its goal is to provide spaces for artists coming from various fields to work solitary or in active social conditions, encouraging encounters with contemporary art practices outside of urban cultural centers. This elaborate initiative seeks to create a productive environment for inspiration and concentration as well as establishing close cooperation between artists, musicians, thinkers, and professionals from other cultural fields through interdisciplinary programmes and residencies. As a knowledge-based platform for innovative creative production, Kintai Arts Residence integrates the social and cultural framework of Klaipėda region while simultaneously supporting a strong international focus.
Located in a small rural town of a few-hundred people, the Residence is currently inviting artists to develop their visual projects. Kintai Arts also organizes Kintai Music Festival that in 2020 will be taking place for the 9 th time. Kintai itself is a quiet town closely connected to the surrounding nature. With an hour drive or trip by boat, one can reach world-renowned natural landscapes of Curonian Spit, the city of Klaipėda, or stroll around the uncanny landscapes of Lithuania Minor.
