NAC residencies are most appropriate for those who seek time and

experiments, artistic production, exchange and cooperation of artists as
well as those who need a big studio or spectacular open spaces?the

Baltic Sea beach. You could also benefit from meetings with visiting
professors and students as well as facilities in more than ten different
workshops ofVilnius Academy of Arts

The Colony provides the necessary living and social conditions to ensure
a comfortable environment for the artists-in-residence. Each of the five
residencies is set out on two floors with 65 square meters of floor
space and is equipped with all the necessaryfacilities

The Colony is not only hosting 50 residents per year but also produces
shows, publications and educational programmes. In October 2015, when
the reconstruction of the last part of NAC building will be over, its
size will double and a new department -*Nida Doctoral School
<http://www.nidacolony.lt/en/nida-doctoral-school>*(NDS)*-*with a 200
sq. m. showroom (white cube/black box), workstudios and facilities for

doctoral education in humanities and artistic research and provide
intensive courses and residencies for doctoral fellows.

Moreover this year the Colony is organizing Lithuanian Pavilion in the
56^th Venice Biennale with a project ?Museum <http://www.museo.lt/>? by
