Kuldiga Artists´ Residence is a producer and curator of art and creative industries’ projects. Currently, artists are selected by invitations only. The Residence operates a small art gallery, which is our opportunity to present A-I-R programs to local community and a contribution to help building the general creative ambience in the town. “Art & Response / Ability” is our concept for program in 2015, and it consists of numerous exhibitions, a creative summer school, painting and graphic workshops, lectures, and film screenings, with participation of close to 100 artists and art students from Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Sweden, France and other countries. The Residence works in close cooperation with the Art Academy of Latvia.

Located 150 km from the capital Riga, Kuldiga is an ancient town, and many visitors also believe it to be Latvia’s most charming. The magic of Kuldiga’s medieval architecture (on the UNESCO National Cultural Heritage list), stunning nature, regular art and culture events – all of this provides an excellent opportunity to escape the haste and routine of working and living in a big city, and find a place of inspiration and creativity. Kuldiga has always attracted artists, filmmakers, designers and photographers as a location for their creative work.

The only stationary open-air cinema in Latvia, a modern library, exhibition hall Art House, Kuldiga District Museum and other projects show the municipal investment in the town’s art and culture infrastructure. It is also planned to open a department of the Art Academy of Latvia in Kuldiga by 2018. Kuldiga Artists´ Residence was established with the aim of presenting town of Kuldiga and Latvia in general to the international arts and culture scene.
