The united ISSP and Baltic Analog Lab Summer School will take place from 2 to 9 August in Cēsis, at the Rucka Art Residency Centre. Under the theme NATURAL PHENOMENA, the summer camp will explore the fascinating natural world and its creatures around us. The participants will be invited to create their own work drawing creative inspiration and new skills from four different mini workshops (both photography and analogue film) and guest lectures and discussions with invited biologists, entomologists, environmental scientists, writers and more!
The number of participants will be limited to 30 (countries without current Covid travel restrictions), based on submitted applications.
