Description

Narva Art Residency (NART) is a cultural platform founded in 2015. It facilitates residencies, art exhibitions, talks and educational workshops. It is located in Narva city on the Estonian-Russian border on the historical Kreenholm site. The residency is operated by the Estonian Academy of Arts in collaboration with Narva Gate and is supported by the Estonian Ministry of Culture.

The international artist-in-residence program is open for artists and creatives operating across visual arts, music, performance, architecture, design, film, literature, and curatorial practices. The program aims to generate creative exchange between practitioners as well as strengthen ties with the local context.

NART aims to host artists who engage with the community in Narva. Artists are invited to make interactive, socially-engaged, and/or community-based projects. The involvement can also take a variety of forms such as events, exhibitions, open studios, etc. The planned practice should be outlined in the application form.

The residency offers accommodation, working space, a shared kitchen, and access to the Kreenholm factory. Selected artists will sign a contract to set the time of stay at the residency. NART gives a letter of confirmation for artists who apply for extra/outsource funds. NART fosters residencies of approximately 2 months.
