Kaunas AiR

Kaunas Artist-in-Residence program is an initiative of CreArt, launched in 2014. CreArt Kaunas partners, PE “Artkomas”, have a large experience of organizing visual arts projects, and short-term residencies in their city as well as other cities and towns of Lithuania. With their own focus on painting, “Artkomas” co-operates with experts of other visual arts fields.

Preference is given to works with a wide variety and diversity. There is no age limitation, yet it is necessary to have a degree in a field of art. If the applicant does not have a university degree, proof of equivalent ability must be provided through his or her artistic career.

Kaunas will provide an assistant to help with settling in the city and organize introduction to the local artist scene. The artists will have open days for visitors. In addition, Kaunas will make a final public presentation of the artworks created during the residency (a group exhibition of the 4 artists).

The exhibition will be displayed in Kaunas, in co-operation with a local continuous art project. Finally one of the artworks will remain in Kaunas city.
