The residency programme at Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Academy of Arts (NAC) is open for emerging and experienced artists, designers, architects, curators and art researchers, and philosophers. NAC is the academic and artistic venue in the Baltic region that provides the opportunity to live and work in the Curonian Spit National Park. Since 2011, when the A-I-R programme was launched, about 250 artists and other culture professionals have stayed at the Colony. NAC aims to facilitate hybrid art, architecture and design practices.
The atmosphere and intensity of residencies depends on the season and programme of the Colony. There are between 5 and 55 people staying at NAC at all times. In the summer, Nida becomes a busy (albeit not overcrowded) resort. Throughout September and partly May you will share the space with art, architecture and design students. From October to April you will enjoy solitude, occasionally accented by art professionals or students arriving to the Colony for workshops.
