Rupert Residency | Vilnius
Rupert is currently accepting applications for its residency programme, inviting cultural practitioners and thinkers from both local and international backgrounds. This includes artists, writers, curators, researchers, managers, and academics who are interested in living and working in Vilnius for a duration of 1 to 3 months in 2024 (January–December). Participants will have the opportunity to develop individual or collaborative projects, engage in reflections and research, and immerse themselves in the vibrant contemporary art scene of the region.
Rupert is situated in the picturesque Valakampiai area of Vilnius, offering a serene environment by the Neris River, with a small beach and beautiful surrounding fields and forests. The residency studios are located in the ‘Tech Arts’ building, an architectural masterpiece designed by the renowned Lithuanian architect Audrius Ambrasas.
Each resident is provided with a spacious studio space, approximately 52 m2, which includes a mezzanine area for production, research, and living during the residency. The studio is fully furnished and equipped with WiFi. The building also houses other organizations and companies, along with a reading room, gallery space, conference room, and a communal kitchen that residents are welcome to use.
Artist collectives of up to 3 people can apply for an individual residency, in which case they will be provided with one studio. Families are also welcome to apply, but it’s important to note that the kitchen, bathroom, and toilet facilities are shared with other residents and initiatives in the building.
Individual residencies can range from 1 to 3 months. Applicants are asked to propose their preferred duration of stay, which can be negotiated upon acceptance based on studio availability and schedule.
To apply, please complete the online application form and submit the necessary documents through Rupert’s website. The deadline for applications is 15 JUNE 2023, 23:59, EEST.
Please note that there is a €15 application fee.
Successful applicants will be selected for online interviews with the residency admissions jury (Rupert’s team and an external member), which will take place in July 2023. The results of this open call will be announced by the end of August 2023.
