Artist Residency

From 2016 until 2023 Rucka Artist Residency organized open calls for the residency programs taking place at Rucka Manor House in Cesis, for artists to work on production and post-production of their projects.

The aim of the residency program is to bring together artists from different spheres (film and photography, multimedia, dance, theatre, design, drawing, etc.) to create artworks that address important social and environmental issues and preferably involve local community in the development of the proposed artwork.
