Photographers / artists working with photography (from the Nordic – Baltic region*)
1-2 months: May – December 2018
The ISSP Riga Residency programme is aimed at a diverse range of photographers and artists using the medium of photography, primarily based in the Nordic – Baltic region*. We welcome those interested in exploring the social, cultural and historical context of Riga in the framework of their artistic practice. During stays of up to two months, the residency programme provides the opportunity for concentrated work on a project informed by interaction with the city and its residents. The visiting artists will be introduced to the local audience in a public artist talk, and we encourage collaboration with local artists, community groups and cultural organisations. Based in Riga, the capital of Latvia and the largest city in Baltics, the residency also offers a culturally intense experience and opportunity to explore the region.
The Riga Residency is curated by ISSP – a platform for contemporary photography, based in Riga, but acting internationally, and invites the participating artists to benefit from its international network and get involved in its activities and education programme.
Applications for the ISSP Riga Residency are open until 1 March 2018.
The programme will start in May 2018.
