Riga Circus Residency program is created as a laboratory for new forms of artistic research and art practices within the interdisciplinary field of art. We are located in Riga, Latvia, and open to contemporary circus artists, dancers, visual artists, and architects.
Riga Circus Well-being Residency program is providing an opportunity for socially engaged contemporary artists/artist groups (up to 4 people) who value exchange between artists and all groups of society both for their artistic development and for encouraging social change through art.
Our main mission is to promote contemporary artistic practices mainly focusing on circus development in Latvia and in the Baltic region. We are eager to foster exchange, discussion, experimentation and collaborative work.
During the residency, artists work on ideas for new performances or site-specific projects. Residency may be offered also for post-premiere research and development. Where possible, artists-in-residence should pursue opportunities to engage with the local art field. Artists-in-residence are selected by their proposals submitted by an online open call. To find out more, please check the information on current calls and news below.
