Artist Residency

The aim of the residency program is to bring together artists from different spheres to work on their projects that address important social and environmental issues and preferably involve local community in the development of the proposed artwork.

From 2016 until 2023 the residency programme took place at Rucka Manor House in Cesis. More information about artists visiting the residency during the past years can be found in the Past residents section.
