About Baltic art form


The Baltic Art From is an international cross-cultural art festival uniting artists from the Baltic Region and the UK. The festival aims to help artists from different disciplines and cultures to collaborate, create new art forms and new opportunities, grow, learn and play.

Baltic Art Form is not only a showcase for contemporary arts, but also a creative laboratory that brings artists together to explore and collaborate. Our goal is to present and promote the arts and high calibre artists of the Baltic region in the UK, while fostering a cross-cultural dialogue and understanding between the Baltic region and the rest of the world.
