NOBA Nordic Baltic contemporary art platform

On 23 February NOBA welcomes art professionals, representatives of art institutions and art enthusiasts, educators and professionals in the cultural sphere in Vilnius to a one-day Art Mapping seminar to discuss the options on how to make contemporary art inclusive and accessible to a broader public on a local, national and international level.

The event, taking place at MO Museum, is a part of a series of seminars, organised by NOBA (Nordic Baltic Art Center) – the first event will be held in Vilnius followed by other gatherings in Nordic-Baltic region. Each seminar creates discussions and expands insights to encourage an inclusive platform on cultural production, with representatives of the local art institutions sharing their stories and future views.

The speakers of the event include Kęstutis Kuizinas from Contemporary Art Centre (CAC), Sonata Baliuckaitė fromArtVilnius, Lolita Jablonskienė from National Gallery of Art, Indrė Lelevičiūtė  (MO Museum) and Andra Orn and Meriem Kimmer from NOBA. 

The topics discussed at the event involve:

  • an overview of the region’s most important art institutions and sharing information and insight related to a local art scene and events (exhibitions, festivals, biennials and triennials);  

  • developing models of art production that inspire, educate and encourage (emerging) artists, but also contribute to sustainable thinking;

  • providing an overview and representing sustainable structural and funding models of large art festivals and how those can significantly impact society;

  • how to produce large scale art pieces, exhibitions, and festivals with minimal ecological impact;

  • collaboration with international colleagues in order to share experiences and to strengthen the network of art professionals that (re)connects the Baltic and Nordic region;

  • mapping interesting new developments in the art field and imagining new futures in art-making and sharing
