euroart is an organization of the European arto colonies and residencies, whose main activity is preserving and re-discovering the impact that the art colonies of the late 19th – early 20th century had on the development of impressionism and expressionism, the stylistic conflicts among the artists and the global distribution of expressionism in the broad sense. The conference focuses on the historical reflection of the Nida Artists Colony, the founding of the space (an oasis of peace) in Nida that is helpful for artistic inspiration, the development of the creative residencies program by ensuring suitable infrastructure and a program of creative grants, encouraging the artists to work in Neringa. The speakers at the event will share their insights into the Europe-wide euroeart network and its significance, the cultural heritage of the Nida Artists Colony as an artistic residence, the development of contemporary collections and art residencies in Nida and will welcome discussions.
