Description 

In 2015, the objective of KKKC international art residency "Travel Agency–2015" is site marketing. During the residency, the artists would use their research strategy to shape a plan for artistic action that will serve as a base for presentation of twelve locations in Klaipėda city. In this manner, these locations become memorable, popular, representative, and attractive, while the city-dwellers and guests can use them to spend one hour in reflection and self-perception. KKKC proposes the artists in residence, by employing their creative strategies, to reflect Klaipeda city and carry out "route accounting", so that the residency activities similize with those of a cultural travel agency.

In 2015, the residency theme is "One Hour Local Time". The artists participating in the residency programme are to create a vision and plan for 12 cultural points, whose further development and subsequent research are to be carried out by further KKKC residents, the most active city-dwellers taking part in the projects, and representatives of the culture and business sectors.

"One Hour Local Time" is to become an indirect tool for community building, when community members can participate in building the artistic environment on their own and also maintain the viability and relevance of the new space, modify it according to their needs, in this way fostering culture and encouraging the development of community spirit, as well as cultural and social innovation in different areas of Klaipėda.
