Project description:

The project “The Power Jab” combines art and education, with professional artists working in nine Riga schools to create artworks designed for these particular buildings. All artists come from the Baltic Sea countries. The artworks they create will help maintain quality aesthetic environment in schools (in most of which all artworks on show are purposefully amateurish, created by pupils and teachers), which is highly important for the personality development process. The works created by artists participating in the project will help shape young people’s taste and cultural development, and the project will also mark the beginning of various cultural experience exchange initiatives.
