Nida Art Colony (Vilnius Academy of Arts)
The overall objective of the NAC project is to improve the quality of art and design education in Lithuania and to implement innovations in the field of art education by promoting international cooperation. By launching the Nida Artist-in-residence Programme NAC also aims to create favourable conditions for creative contemporary art practices. The main forms of NAC activities are international workshops, summer schools, exhibitions, conferences, video screenings and the artistst-in-residence programme. In June, July and September the NAC will house summer workshops of the Vilnius Academy of Arts (these workshops constitute a part of the curriculum and are organised by the Academy‘s departments themselves). All other events are subject to planning.
