Treasures of Āgenskalns


Students of the Janis Rozentāls Riga Art High School explore the Āgenskalns suburb to discover the unique treasures of this part of the city and interpret them artistically. The research process, which began already in the autumn of 2013, will conclude with an exhibition of the new works at the Rozentāls Art School, the opening of which will be accompanied by various creative workshops. A special map created by schoolchildren will be of great help to anyone who wishes to explore Āgenskalns on foot to get acquainted with cultural and historic buildings and areas of the suburb.

Project description:

Active Neighbourhoods is a series of events that make living in a city more inspiring and foster a sense of belonging and responsibility for the area we live in. Activities proposed and implemented by residents of Riga continue throughout 2014 in various neighbourhoods of the city. These include tours of the area planned and guided by locals, artistic meetings en plein air, photography campaigns, celebrations, festivals, lectures and discussions, which all centre on people and their infinite wish to invent and create something new, receive guests and have a great time with them.
