Text + Textiles Residency (Riga, Latvia)

Folks at ebr have been working behind the scenes on this:

ebr announces

Electronic Text + Textiles Residencies

in gorgeous Bauhaus apartment / studio
in burgeoning Riga, Latvia.

The Residency welcomes
artists, designers, writers, and theoreticians
working within or across of the fields of
literature and the arts,
in particular ---

--- work that touches textiles.

(as you know, ebr wears textile thinking close to its heart;
our new online publishing structure is spun from
thread + loop, warp + bark, sutra + suture)

Residencies can be as short as a week
or as long as several months.

Residents will be free to pursue their own
or collaborative projects,
although it is expected that work will appear
in some form in ebr or on Alt-X.

For more information, check out the application.
