NAC is pleased to announce two calls for submissions for a new research/residency programme called Neringa Forest Architecture.
NAC is located on the Curonian Spit, a 98km-long sand dune shared by Lithuania and Russia, separating the Curonian Lagoon from the Baltic Sea. As discussions surrounding human intervention and activities in the natural landscape gain increasing significance, NAC’s new program positions the forests of the Curonian Spit as a foundation from which residents can analyze the broader scope of forest-as-infrastructure in the Nordic-Baltic region. This research/residency program is an attempt to align local spatial practices with an international network of creative practitioners while redefining the Neringa Forest as a conceptually expansive space: a space of, and for, ideas.
Who can apply
NAC is encouraging designers, architects, artists, historians, new materials’ scientists and forest researchers, in particular women and underrepresented minorities, to propose projects featuring intersecting, interdisciplinary practices, which have the potential to rearticulate society’s relationship to this particular woodland environment. The program is also open to curators, as well as those working with performing arts, sound, material research/craft, and film. In addition, interdisciplinary proposals from professionals in other fields are welcome.
Selected applicants will be granted a live/work studio, a monthly grant of 1000 euros and additional travel costs.
For the months of November and December 2020 NAC is seeking applications from researchers, designers, architects and artists from Lithuania. Application deadline for applicants from Lithuania: 4 October, 2020, Midnight EET
For the months of December 2020 – March 2021 NAC is seeking applications from researchers, designers, architects and artists from Estonia, Latvia, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, including the autonomous areas of the Faroe Islands, the Åland Islands and Greenland. Application deadline for applicants from the Baltic and Nordic regions: 1 November, 2020, Midnight EET
