Partners role within project Art Line:

Nida Art Colony will host four workshops or presentations on digital media art by artists. They will be arranged in their localities and they will invite artists, institutions and organisations and be responsible for communication of the project to the general audience in the region. Artists from the Kaliningrad region will be invited to take part of workshops and seminars organised within the framework of Art Line; all will be prepared and paid for by the partners. The invited artist will in their turn bring the knowledge to Lithuania, Nida Art Colony, in the form of a new workshop or presentation. They will suggest artists from their region most suited for the workshops, all in discussion with partners, as well as facilitating communication between artists and partners. They will together with partners and project management of Art Line discuss ideas for future cooperation and network-building.
