|The residency programme at Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Academy of Arts (NAC) is open for emerging and experienced artists, designers, architects, curators and researchers. NAC is one of the largest art, residency and education venues in the Nordic-Baltic region. It provides the opportunity to live and work in the Colony’s contemporary architecture, situated in a coastal pine forest. Since 2011 over 350 artists and other culture professionals have stayed at the Colony.
The atmosphere and life intensity depends on the season and programme of the Colony. There are between 7 and 70 people staying at NAC at all times. For most of the year, from October through April, one enjoys solitude, occasionally accented by art professionals or students arriving to the Colony for workshops or other activities. In May, June and September you will have to share common spaces with art, architecture and design students and their professors. During July and August, Nida becomes a busy (albeit not overcrowded) resort.
Living and social conditions are provided to ensure a comfortable environment. Each of the five residency studios contains two floors with 65 square meters of total space, equipped with all necessary facilities. Professional workshops and support, well-equipped spaces, and an artistic community are present all year round. There are opportunities to present art works or to host a workshop.
