Artist-in-residency centre Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Academy of Arts for its 3rd birthday party goes to Berlin!
During three years we hosted more than 150 artists from all over the globe, but Berlin still seems to be the capital city where the most artist are coming from.
Thus we decided it to be the perfect location for our menagerie*: a gathering of our friends, former residents, new fans, old gangs. They can't come over to where we are, thus we bring the party over to them. We bring one of our favourite bands THE BUS (Paulius Kilbauskas & Domas Strupinskas project) with us to share some good emotions inspired by Nida ambience. liNas (Neringa FM) and former Nida Art Colony resident Kalin will share some good vibes on the DJ decks after the show.
Let's get this party started!
Free entrance (birthday presents are welcome)

It seems that previous residents from South America have taken the freezing Neringa weather and -15ºC with them and left us just some melting snow.
Now NAC is fully inhabited with our new residents: Henrik Heding (SE), Laurie Lax (UK), Justin Tyler Tate (JAV) and Allison Guy (USA/NL). Kalin Lindena from Germany just took the ferry from Klaipėda to Kiel. Months, residents, languages change in the Colony, and not the English has change the previously Spanish temperament.
