ISSP Riga Residency
The ISSP Riga Residency programme is aimed at a diverse range of photographers and artists using the medium of photography, primarily based in the Nordic – Baltic region. It offers the possibility to 4/6 artists selected by an international committee to work for a period of two months – from May to December 2018 – in the city of Riga, the capital of Latvia, developing a photographic project.
The visiting artists will be introduced to the local audience in a public artist talk, encouraged to collaborate with local artists, community groups and cultural organisations. The Residency is curated by ISSP – a platform for contemporary photography, based in Riga, but acting internationally, and invites the participating artists to benefit from its international network and get involved in its activities and education programme.
The ISSP Riga Residency is supported by Nordic Culture Point.
The deadline for the application is 1 March 2018.
