It is time to invite professionals apart from our artists-in-residency to come to Narva! Therefore, for our forth workshop we have teamed up with PÄÄSTEVEST (Lifejacket Studios) – a visionary record label and sound company based in Tallinn, Estonia run by Simon White (UK). PÄÄSTEVEST will bring a musician, DJ and producer: Endamisi Salamisi (Niilo Leppik) to give a workshop about the magic of DJing! Endamisi Salamisi is one of the most noticed artists of Estonian alternative music scene. He started off from experimental hip hop, and has moved towards genres of techno and ambient. His recent album “Women That I Trust” was released in January 2018.
We welcome participants of all ages who have ever wondered how to DJ and would like to try out how to mix music with some top-notch equipment provided by PÄÄSTEVEST. You don’t need any previous knowledge about the subject, just bring your curiosity and come to experiment!

Detour – Narva Youth Educational Programme relates to the cultural heritage of the region, combining activities connected to visual, sound and performance art, curatorial practice and community-based works. It aims to encourage participants to redefine their surrounding environment and to 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 it’s 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 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.
