Baltic-Nordic analog labs

With a kind support of Nordic Culture Point throughout year 2019 - 2020 we have created network of analog labs in Nordic and Baltic region. 

The aim of the project was to provide a series of events and joint meetings for artist's run analog labs in Nordic and Baltic countries. These are collectively run labs that produces and teaches analog media works - analog films, photography and sound. There are five participating labs from five different countries: Baltic Analog Lab (LV), Spongé Studio (LT), Filmverkstaden (FI), Polar Film Lab (NO) and All Hands On Deck (SWE) Within the project participants of the labs  provided a space and join workshops and events with intention of education and further collaboration between each other.
