Event History

Launched in 2018, the ISSP Riga Residency provides an opportunity for concentrated work on a personal project informed by interaction with the city and its residents or quality time to rethink and complete already ongoing work. We welcome artists and curators interested in exploring the social and cultural context of Riga.

What Makes this event different?

The Residency is organised in cooperation with kuš! – a Riga-based international platform for comics artists and illustrators, which will create extra opportunities for interdisciplinary interaction between the Residency participants. There are no limitations regarding age, background or photographic style. The residents will be chosen based on their applications and fit to the residency calendar.

The Residency is aimed at photographers and a diverse range of artists working with photography and provides an opportunity for concentrated work on a personal project in Riga and its surroundings. This time, we invite applications from artists coming from the EU, EEA, Switzerland and UK.  
Duration of stay: 1–3 months (longer stays preferred)
Application deadline: April 25
