• Magic Carpets
    • From 2017 till 2021 the New Theatre Institute of Latvia together with 14 other organisations from Kaunas, Berlin, Folkestone, Rome, Prague, Bucharest, Limerick, Tbilisi, Porto, Zagreb, Novi Sad, Innsbruck, Lviv  and Nantes 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.
    • A collaboration project  of three Baltic theatre organisations  – New Theatre Institute of Latvia, Lithuanian State Youth Theatre and “Vaba Lava” in Estonia, focuses on the presentation of the young generation of Baltic theatre makers at international theatre forums in Berlin and Warsaw in spring and autumn of 2020 in collaboration with theatre Volksbühne and TR Warszawa, and also aims to develop platform for meeting and discussion among emerging Baltic theatre artists. The project is supported by the Baltic Culture Fund.
    • 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.
  • ACT: Art, Climate, Transition
    • ACT is a European cooperation project on ecology, climate change and social transition. In an era of climate breakdown, mass extinction and growing inequalities we join our forces in a project on hope: connecting broad perspectives with specific, localised possibilities, ones that invite or demand that we act. ACT is a project initiated by 10 cultural operators from 10 European countries, working in the field of performing and visual arts. ACT is a project with the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. ACT emerges from the cultural operators of the preceding Imagine2020 project. This European project evolved around raising awareness on the climate crisis, and presenting the arts as a strong designer of possible futures. Social awareness and citizen action on these issues recently saw an enormous increase in intensity and spread. ACT maintains our focus on arts, ecology and climate change, but we connect this to the interlinked issues of inequality, climate justice and urban ecologies. Finding ourselves in the Anthropocene era, we seek to include the agency and voicing of the non-human and other voices. Partners: Lokomativa (Skopje), Bunker (Ljubljana), Domino (Zagreb), Culturgest (Lisbon), Kaaitheater (Brussels), Artsadmin (London), Coal (Paris), New Theatre Institute (Riga), Theater Rotterdam, Kampnagel (Hamburg).
  • Art BEyond PARTicipation
    • BE PART is a 4-year audience and organisational development project in the field of participatory art practices implemented by 10 EU and non-EU partners. BE PART sets out to create a European network of co-authors, supported by artists and organisations to collectively foster new approaches and structures for the co-creation and mobility of artworks. BE PART is a practical and critical exploration of collaborative art-making and sharing. It goes beyond defining multiple communities as ‘participants’ proposing them as co-authors of the artistic processes with specific knowledges and experiences to share. Partners: Santarcangelo dei Teatri (IT), City of Women Association for Promotion of Women in Culture (SI), Artsadmin (UK), Cork Mid-summer Arts Festival (IE), Festival de Marseille (FR), Kansallisgalleria (FI), Kunstencentrum Vooruit (BE), L’Art Rue (TN), New Theatre Institute (LV), Scottish Sculpture Workshop (UK). The project is supported by the EU programme “Creative Europe”.
