Start of Uzupis Art Incubator

Monika Jasinskaite

Uzupis Art Incubator is created by two organizations. One of them is an alternative arts center, which was funded by artists, who were living here for long time, and they came with their ideas and with their work. And the other organization is Vilnius municipality, which came with the funding. And Vilnius municipality is still supporting us with the main funding. And it is a big help for Uzupis Art Incubator.

So for the exhibitions and for the events that we organize, we also try to attract also state funding, like we apply for the projects for Lithuanian Culture Council. Also we try to use European funding, but as these funding need long-term workout, and as we opened only last year after the renovation, it is just the beginning for us. And we are already working with two projects that are getting this Lithuanian government support.

Also we have the residents here. We try to offer the residents services. We have the artists who are organizing workshops. We also offer some other types of services, and some of them are creating the products together, and we can offer that to clients. And for example very nice cooperation was between LT-identity who are fashion designers and our jeweller Ruta Petronyte Jewellery. She introduced her work so they created really nice product for people who want to look nicely. So they are presenting their work.
