Open call for Summerlab 2022!

From the 13th till 17th of June 2022, New Theatre Institute of Latvia will host an international Summerlab for ten performing arts professionals from Portugal, England, Slovenia, the Netherlands, France, Belgium, Croatia, Germany, North Macedonia and Latvia. The aim of the Summerlab is to create a discussion on the effects of climate change, to encourage the deepening and diversification of the coverage of this topic in participant’s practices, as well as to strengthen sustainable relationships.

During the five days, the participants of the Summerlab, accompanied by local scientists, will go on expeditions along the peatlands of Latvia and their trails. The expeditions will also feature local artists who work extensively on nature-related topics and highlight the effects of climate change in their artistic practices.

– The Summerlab is designed for performing arts professionals (theatre directors, actors, dramaturgs, choreographers, dancers and any other artists that are interested in environmental topics in art practices) who right now live in Latvia.
– It will take place near the Great Kemeri National Park in Latvia, from the 13th till 17th of June, 2022.
– The Summerlab will be held in English.
– Participants will be provided with accommodation and meals throughout the project. All additional costs related to transport and entrance fees will be covered.

To apply, fill in this form by the 19th of May.
We will announce the selected candidate (only one participant from Latvia) individually by the 23rd of May.

In case of any questions, please write to or call +371 20366184.

“ACT: Art. Climate. Transition” is co-financed by the EU’s programme “Creative Europe”. 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. More about the project read at
