The new RIXC Nordic-Baltic residency programme encourages to apply digital artists who are working with following topics: art and science, urban-rural farming, climate change, nature, forest and swamp ecosystems, hydroponics, microbes, harvesting, foraging, techno-ecologies, bioart, agriculture.
The main base of the residency is RIXC Laboratory in Riga where's free access to WiFi, shared work space equipped with facilities for AR/VR/360-video production, sound and video editing, and digital fabrication (3D printer, CNC, laser cutter).
However, for the artists to have more suitable conditions to work with environment, ecology and field studies, we offer a unique possibility to spend part of the residency time in new RIXC Rural Lab (in the countryside of Latvia, 100 km from Riga).
Expected results of the residency include VR, acoustic immersive environments, 360 degree video, interactive work which can be shown in the RIXC gallery at the close of the residency.
We welcome professional artists from Nordic and Baltic countries to apply for 2-month residency, that should take place in May-June (or October-November). Eligible countries of residence for the artists are Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Åland) or the Baltic states (Estonia, Lithuania), but it is not necessary for the artists to have Nordic or Baltic nationality.

Artists groups are welcome if they are wiling to share the conditions including the accommodation.
