Narva Art Residency OPEN CALL 2024


Narva Art Residency is announcing its open call for residencies in 2024. This time we offer about a dozen residencies in the main programme and 3 funded places for creating public space installations in the European-Russian border city of Narva. Deadline is on 30 September.

Narva Art Residency is a unique cultural space that initiates and facilitates residencies, art exhibitions, public events of many kinds and hosts educational activities. It is a vibrant community, check out a short video about the building here. The international artist-in-residence program is open for artists and creatives operating across all arts – visual arts, music, performance, architecture, design, film, literature, and curatorial practices etc. Residents are invited to make interactive, socially engaged, and/or community-based work which are relevant also in Narva. The focus is on artistic practices where engagement is part of the process.

For example, in 2023 Danish artist Kristian Sverdrup and his team created an artistic bus stop bench, and German artist Elke Renate Steiner held two comics workshops every week of her residency. Japanese duo Reico Motohara and Kabo invite locals to cook together with them.

In addition to the main residency program, Narva Art Residency invites three artists or creative duos to create sculptural artworks or urban installations in the public spaces of the city. The two-month-long residencies come with a 35€ allowance per day, a travel budget, and a 1000€ budget for production.

The deadline for the open call is on 30 September at 23.59 (Estonian time).
