Dear All,

We are now accepting applications for the: EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM  
2014-2015 and RESIDENCY PROGRAM 2015. For application guidelines see  
below or on our website.

Our EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM was developed out of a need for combining art  
education and professional production, establishing knowledge exchange  
by a group of lecturers, participants, artists, curators and other  
international creative practitioners and researchers from both within  
and outside the field of contemporary art, fortifying the academic  
community with a distinct brand of self-directed learning while  
providing individuals with a community. The Educational Program is a  
degreeless, non-academic program. Every year it selects a small group  
of people with aspirations to realize individual projects and offers  
them practical and theoretical support to enhance and realize them. In  
addition, it offers wider professional support and access to resources  
and community, encouraging participants to learn through practice. If  
you are interested in developing a project: an art work, an  
exhibition, a film, a book, a magazine, an online platform, an  
institution, or any other project that you think can benefit from and  
would in turn benefit the program, let us know! Guests for the 3rd  
edition (2014-2015) include Miroslaw Balka, Liudvikas Buklys, Gintaras  
Didžiapetris, Antanas Gerlikas, Ieva Misevičiūtė, Laure Prouvost,  
Michael Portnoy, Kasia Redzisz, Juozas Laivys, Isla Leaver-Yap and  
Jonas Žakaitis. More will be confirmed in the coming months.
Deadline: 23 September 2014
Program duration: October 2014-June 2015

Our RESIDENCY PROGRAM is suited for local and international thinkers:  
artists, writers, curators, cultural managers, and academics,  
providing them with the opportunity to live and work in Vilnius while  
developing individual projects and immersing themselves in the  
region’s creative sphere. Run alongside Rupert’s Educational,  
Exhibitions and Public programs, it also enables residents to benefit  
from collaboration with these programs that draw participants and  
mentors from a wide range of complementary artistic backgrounds, as  
well as attend talks, lectures and workshops by prominent curators,  
artists and thinkers from all over the world. Located in the  
picturesque area of Valakampiai in Vilnius and only a short distance  
from the city’s flourishing cultural center, Rupert is set by the  
river Neris and a small river beach, surrounded by peaceful fields and  
a forest. The residencies are located in a newly-constructed building  
designed by award-winning Lithuanian architect Audrius Ambrasas,  
operating as an arts incubator which houses a number of creative  
industries initiatives. Each resident is provided with a studio space  
and mezzanine (approximately 52 sq m. altogether) to be used as a  
production and research space during the residency. The studio is  
fully furnished and equipped with WiFi. The building also houses a  
reading room, conference room, and a kitchen, all of which are open  
for residents’ use. Each resident is also provided with a Mac  
computer and a bicycle for the duration of the program.

Deadline: 1 October 2014, midnight
January - June 2015

Break Dance Workshop
29 August 2014

An afternoon of breakdancing activities with Rupert's residents  
Styrmir Örn Guðmundsson,Aneta Neringa Rostkowska and Marnie Slater.

Break, dance, work, shake, lava, ice, potatoes, Aneta’s novel, news,  
the cats’ gazette, vinyl, smoke breaks, Google Docs, balls,  
flightless birds, breaking beats, swinging, soggy and soft monuments,  
a smell, an explosion, karaoke, Maxima, sitting on Styrmir’s bed,  
story in a short forest, trash, cardboard, tape and glue, litres of,  
breaking news, spontaneously combusting dance, moves, blue cheese,  
pears, beers, sausage dog, smoking, somaaesthetics (Kurt Smells Like  
Teen Spirit), Marnie’s matches, 80% mascarpone, deep sea, fireworks,  
ritual fertility. Fut ha Fut ha Fut ha Fut ha Fut ha Fphooooh.

Hey, by the way, why did break dance choose us and why are b-girls and  
-boys such close cousins to karaoke-kids? Karaoke, like breaking, is  
gymnastic. It’s a work out. You simply substitute weights and  
kilometers for songs and lyrics. You wanna take on Freddy Mercury? You  
might want to start lighter. Or vice versa.
