Rupert is now accepting applications for its educational and residency programs. Rupert’s educational program is a degree-less, non-academic program. Each year it selects a small group of people with aspirations to realize individual projects and offers them practical and theoretical support to enhance and realize them. The program was developed out of a need for combining art education and professional production, establishing knowledge exchange between a group of lecturers, participants, artists, curators and other international creative practitioners and researchers from both within and outside the field of contemporary art as well as fortifying the academic community with a separate brand of self-directed learning while providing individuals with a community.

 

Rupert’s residency program is suited for local and international thinkers: artists, writers, curators, cultural managers, and academics, providing them with the opportunity to live and work in Vilnius while developing individual projects and immersing themselves in the region’s creative sphere. Run alongside Rupert’s educational, exhibitions and public programs, it also enables residents to benefit from collaboration with these programs that draw participants and mentors from a wide range of complementary artistic backgrounds, as well as attend talks, lectures and workshops by prominent curators, artists and thinkers from all over the world.

Located in the picturesque area of Valakampiai in Vilnius and only a short distance from the city’s flourishing cultural center, Rupert is set by the river Neris and a small river beach, surrounded by peaceful fields and a forest. The residencies are located in a newly constructed building designed by award-winning Lithuanian architect Audrius Ambrasas, operating as an arts incubator which houses a number of creative industries initiatives. Each resident is provided with a fully furnished studio space and mezzanine (approximately 52 square meters) to be used as a production and research space during the residency.

Residency period: January–June 2015
Residency duration: 2-12 weeks
Application fee: 10 euros.

To apply, please send your application form (available on the website) along with your CV and portfolio (up to five works) to residencies@rupert.lt by 1 October.

Rupert’s educational and residency programs are free. Personal and production expenses must be covered independently.
