Flâneur is a European art project that encourages photographers to work in an urban environment, enabling a fresh look at the dynamics of European cities and their geographic and social landscapes.

In Riga, artist residencies for two photographers from the project partner countries will be held in April - May 2016. A presentation event with the results of the residency will happen in May 2016, during the Riga Photomonth. An open-call for these residencies will be announced later this year.

During the International Summer School of Photography 2016 in Kuldīga, Latvia there will be also be a workshop dedicated to the idea of contemporary “flâneurs” and urban spaces.
