NART is announcing its’ first open call to welcome both professionals and emerging artists, architects, designers, thinkers, philosophers and curators to apply for a residency in 2019. The deadline for applications is January 25th. Applicants will be selected by a committee invited together by NART. Successful applicants will be contacted in February 2019.
Narva Art Residency is a unique cultural platform that operates due to a collaboration between Estonian Academy of Arts, Narva Gate and Estonian Ministry of Culture. It initiates and facilitates residencies, art exhibitions, talks and educational workshops. It is located in Narva city on the Estonian-Russian border at the historical Krenholm area. The international artist-in-residency programme is open for artists operating across a wide range of disciplines, including Visual Arts, Music, Performance, Architecture, Design, Film, Literature and Curatorial Practices. It aims to generate creative exchange between practitioners and to strengthen links with the local community. The centre is located at the historic style villa, originally built for the technology director of Krenholm. In close proximity stands the vacant textile factory which was once the largest of its kind in Europe and Russia. In recent times, it has functioned as a major source of inspiration for artists and a space allowing opportunity for experimenting.
Application must include:
– Filled application form
– Project description / Plan for the residency (max 1 page)
– Webpage (referring to 3 works relevant to the application) or Portfolio
