About Akee

Akee is a community initiative that is being developed in the Aleknaičiai village, in the Pakruojis district, on the site of a former school built in the late 1930s. Its goal is to enrich the discourse on Lithuanian and international culture related to non-urban areas and to create opportunities for cultural producers and researchers to implement socially responsible and site sensitive projects in non-urban areas.
