• Magic Carpets
    • From 2017 till 2021 the New Theatre Institute of Latvia together with 12 other organisations from Kaunas, Berlin, Folkestone, Rome, Prague, Bucharest, Limerick, Tbilisi, Porto, Zagreb, Novi Sad and Innsbruck is a partner in a new EU platform Magic Carpets supported by Creative Europe. The goal of Magic Carpets is to foster the development and mobility of emerging artists by providing residency opportunities. The emerging artists in residencies will have the chance to collaborate with local communities and artists and to work in the field of socially engaged and responsible art creating new multi-discipline artworks related to current issues of global nomadism, displacement and encountering otherness.
  • Imagine 2020(2.0): Art, ecology & possible futures
    • Imagine 2020 started as a network of arts organizations in 2010 with the focus to raise awareness in the cultural field and in a broader civil society context around climate change. In the next five years until 2019 the network aims to take a step up and focus on imagining, studying and making prototypes of possible future. Imagine 2020(2.0) consist of 12 arts organisations in Belgium, UK, France, Portugal, Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, Latvia who in the coming years will support and stimulate creative artist-citizen practices that allow alternative perspectives to emerge. The network will organize trans-national summer labs for artists, series of discussions and cross-disciplinary meetings, produce new work by established and emerging artists and engage with less visible audiences.
  • Urban Heat
    • A four year project that supports emerging and mid-career artists to develop and create daring and extraordinary work that connects with the world outside the arts by addressing urgent political and social issues, and by working with audiences and communities affected by those issues. Through a series of meetings and labs with academics, faith leaders, political scientists and technologists, Urban Heat enables 22 selected artists to develop their understanding of issues facing cities and to propose new forms of participatory arts practice and projects in response. The project is realized by the FIT (Festivals in Transition) network together with New Theatre Institute of Latvia and colleagues from Germany, Finland, Estonia, Great Britain, Netherlands, Portugal, Poland, Slovenia, Italy, Iceland and Egypt. 
    • Since 2018 we are joining a 3-year-long international project launched by Prague Quadrennial dedicated to share European recent and not-so-recent cultural, and inevitably political, heritage. The project is focused on performance design in the context of our European heritage, and will bring together a range of “performance creators” to design work that responds to the specific contexts of selected heritage sites, undertaking a program of workshops, masterclasses, artist residencies, site specific performances and exhibitions.
