Lithuania | Rupert Residency Programme 2023
Rupert is calling for local and international cultural practitioners and thinkers (artists, writers, curators, researchers, managers and academics) for their 2023 residency programme in Vilnius, Lithuania.
A residency can run from 1 to 3 months (between January and December 2023) and is intended to develop individual or collaborative projects, reflections and research while practitioners immerse themselves in the region’s contemporary art field. Operating in parallel with the education and public programmes, the residency programme offers the opportunity to collaborate with other participants and mentors from various cultural backgrounds and participate in and contribute to Rupert’s programmes.
Located in the picturesque area of Valakampiai in Vilnius and only a short distance from the city centre, Rupert sits by one of river Neris’ small beaches, surrounded by peaceful fields and a forest. Each resident is provided with a studio space to be used as a space for production, research and living during the residency. There are a number of other organisations and companies in the building and it also houses a reading room, gallery space, conference room and a kitchen, all of which are open for residents to use.
All the residencies are free this round, thanks to support from the Lithuanian Council for Culture and the studios provided by the creative industries hub Tech Arts. 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.
Deadline: 1 July 2022
Residency partners: Lithuanian Council for Culture, Tech Arts, Vilnius Municipality, and Nordic Culture Point
