Subject: e-t+t Residency: Open call 2008

Dear All,

I am writing to you as a representative of the
electronic-text+textiles Project in Riga. 
We are currently looking for potential Residents for
the year 2008 as there are a few places free. I attach
information below and please also visit: 
for more detailed information under RESIDENCY. 

It is a great opportunity not only to develop ones
creative and research ideas in a very spacious, modern
studio/apartment in one of the most beautiful parts of
Riga but also to enjoy the emerging Baltic scene, the
Baltic Sea and healthy local food. The Residency can
accommodate up to two related persons at one time.

Please forward this information to anyone who might be
interested. Thank you!

Best regards,

Anda Klavina
e-t+t Project Manager

RESIDENCY IN RIGA , LATVIA: electronic - text +
textiles PROJECT

The electronic - text + textiles Project (e-t+t
Project) invites applications for its Residency in
Riga, Latvia, for the year 2008. The Residency
welcomes artists, designers, writers, and
theoreticians working within or across of the fields
of literature and the arts, in particular textiles
related. The e-t+t Project encourages Residents,
through a mix of conceptual investigations and
material productions, to join in a decades-long
project among writers and artists involved in the
Alt-X and ebr network. This group has been working
consistently, not just to replace one technology with
another in literary and arts practices, but to give
direction and cultural context to technological change
and the electronic disturbance. 

Artists, designers, writers, and theoreticians who
submit a short project proposal and are subsequently
selected, become residents at the e-t+t Project. The
term of a Residency can be as short as a week or as
long as several months. During the period of one's
stay, a Resident artist, designer or writer will have
exclusive use of a live/work apartment in Riga, access
to artists, writers, and culture administrators
working in the Baltics, and continuing access to an
extensive network of writers, artists, critics, and
scholars working in electronic environments worldwide.

Residents will be free to pursue their own or
collaborative projects, although we expect that the
Resident's work should appear in some form in ebr
(http://www.electronicbookreview.com/) or at the Alt-X
site (www.altx.com). Residents will be expected, also,
to meet with members of the local arts and literary
communities, either informally or by giving a lecture
or seminar at the Residence workplace. 

The studio is appropriate for 'tidy' practices such as
writing, collation of information, digital work,
visual research, drawing, and small-scale
experimentation and production. Larger productions
such as weaving, printing, and so forth shall be
executed in collaboration with other venues, which
will be negotiated on an individual basis. 

Ongoing until Friday, the 21st of December 2007.

For more information about the residency and how to
apply please visit www.e-text+textiles.lv
