More about each of them:

Vilius Vaitiekūnas is a creator and educator of various cultural activities and formats.In 2019, together with his friends and colleagues, he founded Akee, a cultural and educational space in Aleknaičiai village, Pakruojis district, which connects visual art, dance and architecture creators. He has worked as a curator of education and community engagement activities at the Contemporary Art Centre in Vilnius, and assisted in the Children’s Forest Pavilion project at the Lithuanian National Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2023. In 2024, Vaitiekūnas is the head of educational programmes at Stasys Museum and the curator of the Architecture Foundation’s project “Experiments Platform”.

Agnė Jokšė is an artist and writer, currently based in Vilnius. Using the tools characteristic to autoethnography, Jokšė tells stories in which personal experiences and past events related to contemplations of love, intimacy, relations and friendship intertwine with imaginative reflections. Often works in mediums like video, and performative text, investigates questions concerning parallel histories, compassion, entangled relations, queerness and language.

Ona Lozuraitytė and Petras Išora (Isora x Lozuraityte Studio for Architecture) are architects and researchers working on architectural and art projects.
The studio focuses on urban narratives, public spaces, landscape projects, public infrastructure, social and cultural projects and experiments with matter in interior and exterior architecture.

Kristina Švenčionytė is a Lithuanian contemporary performance artist and actress, known for her distinctive fusion of sculpture, installation, text, and live performances. Kristina has worked and interned in Denmark, Spain, Germany, France, Greece, Poland, and Latvia. Her artistic interests span performance art, audiovisual creation, text synthesis, acoustic expression, and sculpture/installation. The primary themes of her work are the power of the other, the connection between “you” and “me,” the experience of loneliness in the crowd and loneliness in solitude, the (mis)communication between society and the individual, and the sense of exclusion.

Lina Šlipavičiūtė, a creator of monumental art, is interested in the possibilities of transformation of space by integrating artworks into it – how a space/place with its own history influences the artwork that appears in it and vice versa. Meanwhile, smaller format compositions allow to explore another dimension that is important for the artist – psychological space and the phenomena that take place within it.
