Laimikis.lt is taking part in the growing Baltic network of cultural institutions, which foster participatory urban culture in the region by implementing art and education activities. The network is initiated by Färgfabriken (Stockholm), an independent exhibition space and experimental platform for art and architecture, and includes The Baltic Sea Cultural Centre (Gdansk), The Latvian Centre for Contemporary Art (Riga), Rauma Art Museum (Rauma), The Museum of Estonian Architecture (Tallinn), Riseba, International School of Economics and Business Administration (Riga), Creative Association of Curators (TOK, St. Petersburg). An interdisciplinary platform for urban research, community art initiatives, non-formal education and activism, Laimikis.lt represents Vilnius.

The partners seek to make local city planning mechanisms visible. For this purpose, we arrange workshops, exhibitions, performances and actions that engage citizens. We also recognize the pedagogic strength of the cultural institutions to explain the planning systems. After our last meeting with the partners in Stockholm (December 2013) we formulated the Manifesto, or five common goals, which constitute the Baltic Network’s visionary strategy:

1) To offer the cultural software to the hardware of planning.
2) To exchange experiences of cultural and artistic methods to strengthen the Baltic Network.
3) To initiate and maintain cross sectoral dialogue and to bring together different perspectives.
4) To demonstrate how cultural activities and creative actors can work as an engine for economic as well as social long-term urban and societal development.
5) To be a driving force in ensuring citizens’ participation in decision-making within spatial planning.
