A brand new art and culture website, 
Arterritory.com, has been launched in Latvian, 
Russian, and English. This is a new territory on 
the internet, devoted to a survey of Baltic, 
Russian, and Scandinavian art. The website also 
compiles the most important events in the visual 
arts calendar.

The website's target audience are readers who are 
interested in contemporary cultural phenomena and 
who want to make their life more interesting and 
exciting. The creators of Arterritory.com are 
convinced that art is an open world, one that 
provides a place not only for professionals, but 
also for connoisseurs and lovers of art.

Arterritory.com will take a peek inside artists' 
studios, listen to their opinions, and document 
their participation in the most important art 
events. The website will become your discussion 
partner with whom you can exchange opinions about 
exhibits or art and design events in Riga, 
Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Vilnius, Tallinn, 
Copenhagen, Moscow, and elsewhere. 
Arterritory.com is also your calendar of 
important occasions, where someone has already 
marked all the 'must-see' events.

The creators of the website understand that art 
today is not a closed space; it interacts and 
connects with other fields of culture. Precisely 
for this reason, the website also offers 
information about cinema, design, fashion, 
architecture, and books.

Readers can learn about the newest books and 
regional art periodicals; find out the latest in 
fashion and design; and travel the world as 
culture tourists, planning their route based on 
recommendations developed together by 
Arterritory.com and Anothertravelguide.com.

The website was created by a team of 
professionals with many years of experience in 
the fields of visual arts and design: philosopher 
and design theorist Anna Iltnere, art critic and 
curator Daiga RudzÇte, and fashion journalist and 
Anothertravelguide.com editor in chief Una 
Meistere. The visual form of Arterritory.com was 
created by graphic designer JÇnis Notte, who 
currently resides in New York.

'Arterritory.com is a logical continuation of the 
alternative guidebook Another Travel Guide Riga, 
which came about through a collaboration between 
the online magazine for independent travelers 
Anothertravelguide.com and the cultural project 
agency Indie,' say the creators of 
Arterritory.com. 'We are convinced that this 
region is a territory which the world hasn't 
fully gotten to know yet. And it depends on us 
alone whether the world will have the chance to 
discover the cultural diversity, intensity of 
thought, and uniqueness of this region, which 
throughout history, as well as today, has allowed 
for the birth of so many brilliant figures in art 
and culture. These figures can still surprise and 
inspire us as an inexhaustible foundation of 
creative energy.'

Arterritory.com's closest collaboration partners 
are the online magazine for independent travelers 
Anothertravelguide.com and the cultural project 
agency Indie.
