Detour – Narva Youth Educational Programme relates to the cultural heritage of the region, combining activities connected to visual arts, curatorial practice and community-based works. It aims to encourage participants to redefine their surrounding environment and think creatively. Collaboration between professional artists and students lays at the core of the programme. As an interdisciplinary undertaking, it is concentrated around the problematics of arts, its functions and contexts. Taking advantage of the unique setting, the project will refer to the surrounding architecture, especially considering the industrial buildings such as Krenholm Factory in an attempt to discover their new role. In this context, we will try to familiarize the participants with the idea and the purpose of relocating art beyond its conventional contexts and to introduce an alternative way to perceive artistic actions in the public, communal or industrial space.
The event is supported by the British Council in Estonia and EV100 art programme.
Narva Art Residency is operated by the Estonian Academy of Arts in collaboration with Narva Gate and supported by the Ministry of Culture.
