The year at Rucka Artist Residency is divided into two main working periods – from September to May artist residency is open to individual residents working on their art projects, while from June to August the building serves as a venue for different summer events.

Rucka Artist Residency organises open call residency programmes for artists involved with socially important topics to work on production and post-production of their projects. Calls for applications are usually open in May-June with application deadline in August, providing results to applicants in October. The residency period is 1 month and there are several funding opportunities depending on the country of origin of artists:

  • Artists from Nordic and Baltic countries (except Latvia) can apply for the scholarship of Nordic-Baltic mobility programme “Culture” covering travel, accomoodation and production costs;
  • Latvian artists can apply for scholarships covering accomodation and travel costs;
  • Artists from other countries can apply for the scholarship of Rucka Artist Residency providing one month accomodation at the residency.
