Narva Art Residency
Narva Art Residency is a unique cultural platform facilitating residencies, art exhibitions, talks and educational workshops. It is located in Narva city on the Estonian-Russian border at the historical Kreenholm area. The International Artist-in-residency program is open for artists operating across a wide range of disciplines, including Visual Arts, Music, Performance, Architecture, Design, Film, Literature and Curatorial Practices. It aims to generate creative exchange between practitioners and to strengthen links with the local community. The centre is located at the historic style villa, originally built for the technology director of Kreenholm. In close proximity stands the abandoned textile factory which was once the largest of its kind in Europe. In recent times, it has functioned as a major source of inspiration for artists and a space allowing opportunity for experimenting.
