Brief description of residency program

The Kintai Arts Residence is an international residency program for artists located in Kintai (Silute municipality, Lithuania).

It is an artistic initiative in a rural location which provides a forum for all artistic branches and interdisciplinary work, encouraging encounters with contemporary art forms outside of urban cultural centers. Interaction and intervention between art and the local community and environment where it is practiced is a significant aspect of the project.

Kintai Arts Residency seeks creating an environment for inspiration – a place for the artists where they could concentrate on their work as well as creative experiments. Kintai Arts Residency strives for becoming a center for establishing close cooperation between artists, musicians, thinkers, and other people from cultural field through interdisciplinary programs and residencies. A knowledge-based platform for innovative creative production, Kintai Arts Residency integrates with the social and cultural framework of Klaipeda region while simultaneously supporting a strong international focus.

It is an independent non-profit art project supported by the community of Kintai, the public organization Kintai Arts and Pomeranian Association of Arts and Sports. The name Kintai Arts is derived from the town name Kintai where the residency has been established. The residency program started in 2016.

One to three-month residencies are available between each May and October. Shorter stays and "Artists on Tour" plans are available by special arrangement.
